My toddler is getting more and more interested in cooking (making a mess in the kitchen?). This recipe is a perfect introduction to baking (without the baking bit!). My little lady could do everything by herself apart from melting the chocolate.

Servings 20 squares or slices

Ingredients

  • 125 g unsalted butter at room temperature diced
  • 300 g best-quality dark chocolate minimum 70% cocoa solids, broken into pieces
  • 3 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 150 g plain digestive biscuits
  • 100 g mini marshmallows
  • 100 g toppings e.g. Maltesers, nuts, dried fruit…

Instructions

  3. In the meantime, put the biscuits into a zip bag and bash with a rolling pin until you have a mixture of crumbs and larger chunks. 

  4. Fold the biscuit pieces and crumbs into the melted chocolate mixture, then the marshmallows. 

  5. Once it is all nicely coated in chocolate, tip into a lined cake tray (24x24cm or 20x25cm). Smooth with a spatula and scatter toppings over the top, pressing slightly so they stick. 

  6. Pop in the fridge for at least two hours (or overnight). Once firm, remove from the tin and cut into around 20 squares and enjoy.

    Of all the things I can’t eat anymore though, I do miss Maltesers!

      It’s a brilliant little bake (well, a no-bake bake, haha) to make together!

  5. 24/02/2017 / 11:38 pm

    They look so yummy. Rocky road is one of my all time favourites! We often make it and experiment throwing different things in it.

    • 25/02/2017 / 9:52 pm

      I love a versatile recipe 🙂

    Rocky road is perfect for cooking with kids, my problem is stopping them (and me!) snacking on all ingredients before they’ve been added to the mix. I love the little red noses on the top of this one – just perfect for comic relief.

    • 25/02/2017 / 9:34 pm

      My own problem was stopping myself from devouring the whole thing! I have no self-control. None!
