Almond Rocky Road

21 Dec

There is indeed a delight to incorporate all my favourite ingredient into one recipe. So it’s the Rocky Road! with lots of nuts, marshmallows and off course the chocolate! This tastes even better than the one that you have in the market. Best part is that a rocky road can be had anytime of the day. It could be dessert after your supper or even goes well with your tea. It’s a great snack to be packed for your kids tiffin so that they can also have a treat.

Honestly, the taste of marshmallows, nuts and chocolate are really delicious. It’s some sort of energy snack.

So here we get started by first beating the biscuits with a rolling-pin till they are crumbly.

Chop the almonds roughly. Also, you could beat them with a rolling-pin.

Heat the butter in the pan. Melt the chocolate in it. Add scrumptious honey!

Reserve a cup of this sauce.

Now put all the crunch stuff! The biscuits, almonds and of course my favourite Marshmallows. Give them a nice stir.

Bring the mixture and spread it smoothly over a foil. Pour the reserved chocolate sauce on top and make it more even.

Now dust some icing sugar on top of the Rocky Road and cut into pieces.

This has become a hot favorite in my family!!

Cooking time: 15 minutes, Preparation time: 2 hours/overnight refrigeration

Makes 12 bars

For this I used:

300 gm Dark Chocolate

125 softened unsalted butter

200 gm tea biscuits

100 gm almonds

3 tbsp honey

100 gm marshmallows

2 tsp icing sugar

Preparation:

Get started with putting the biscuits in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling-pin untill it is crumbly with a little big and small pieces.

Now, Heat the butter, add the dark chocolate and some honey. Keep stirring. Keep aside 125 ml of melted chocolate in the a bowl.

Fold the biscuits and almonds in the melted chocolate mixture and throw in the marshmallows.

Tip the mixture onto a foil and smoothed it out.

Pour the reserved chocolate mixture on top with a wet spatula.

Refrigerate for about 2 hours or overnight.

Dust some icing sugar over it and cut into pieces.
