Glutton’s Rocky Road

Why hello there.

You know you want me…

As I’ve been told before, I’m a terrible tease and I’m sure I’ve teased you more than long enough about my Glutton’s Version of Rocky Road. This really is something else entirely, and SO SIMPLE. And sneaky. And sinful. And delicious.

You can honestly chuck in anything you like, but what I like to use is a mixture of milk and dark chocolate, marshmallows, jelly snakes instead of glace cherries as those things are gawd-awful, and Tim Tams instead of blah-boring plain biscuits. You can buy roasted nuts to chop up and put in, but I’m uber lazy and just bought a block of Cadbury milk with hazelnuts and another of Cadbury Old Gold with almonds in it.

Don’t look at me that way. I never said this recipe was healthy, kay?

I wanted to add some pistachios but looked in the cupboard and really couldn’t be bothered to try and locate them.

Yeah, I used to be a clean freak. I don’t know what happened… I opened the cupboard and really cbb to sort through it all to look for one measley pack of pistachios. Maybe next time. Maybe.

Anyway, if you want specific amounts of the ingredients, here they are. But really, you can chuck in anything you like so long as you keep it to approximately the same ratios. Stuff too much into it and your chocolate won’t be able to set and will crumble everywhere when you take it out.

You will need:

  • 200g milk eating chocolate;
  • 150g dark eating chocolate;
  • 50g butter;
  • 100g pink and white marshmallows;
  • 4 Tim Tams;
  • 4-5 jelly snakes (red or pinkย preferably, just because I think they taste the best).

Line a 15cm x 15cm square pan or similar with baking paper. Chop up your marshmallows if they’re regular sized, in half.

Slice your snakes up and also chop up the Tim Tams in approximately 1cm chunks.

Melt the chocolates and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water on low heat. Make sure the bottom of the saucepan doesn’t touch the surface of the water, and that there are no gaps between the bowl and the saucepan edge for steam to get into your chocolate mix. Stir continuously so you’re keeping an eye on it, as you don’t want your chocolate to split.

When melted, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, just enough that you can stick your finger in it. Om nom. What was that? I can’t just eat the melted chocolate by itself? Oh ๐Ÿ˜›

Working quickly, stir in the Tim Tam chunks and the jelly snake pieces.

Last of all, stir in the marshmallows. If you put everything in while the chocolate mix is still hot, the jellies and marshmallows will melt. Tim Tams won’t completely melt, but it will be less Tim-Tammy and more just plain chocolate biscuit.

Spoon mixture from bowl into the lined pan and flatten as best as you can.

Refrigerate until firm and then slice into even squares, and then slices.

Eat.

Enjoy your week, lovelies… Less than two weeks from now and I am EXAM AND UNI FREE. I cannot wait!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Timtams in rocky road.. Genius!!
    May I suggest Natural Confectionery Company dinosaurs whole instead of snakes. Then this can be called Paleo’ Road?
