Need a recipe your kiddos will LOVE making? One that they can get fully immersed in and creative with? The awesome Adelaide-based folks at Cook n Create have one of our favorites here for you! We road tested (see what we did there?) the recipe for you and can confirm it’s a great one and would make a fab Christmas gift for teachers and friends.
What you will need (This is the full recipe but if you want to make less, you can simply half the recipe – I often do this or I will munch away on the extras!)
- 300g Digestive biscuits (You can use others of course but digestives work the best)
- 100g coco pops
- 270g unsalted butter
- 400g Chocolate (You can use white, milk or dark!)
- 6 tbsp golden syrup
- 150g marshmallows
That’s the basic recipe BUT we love to add:
- 50g popcorn
- 100g mixed nuts
- 100g mixed dried fruits
You can get creative!
- Break up your chocolate into a large glass/heatproof bowl
- Fill a saucepan with boiling water and place the bowl over the saucepan over a low heat (Make sure the bottom of your bowl isn’t too near the bottom of the saucepan and that you don’t take the bowl off the pan)
- Keep stirring the chocolate until melted – this is a slow melting method called a ban marie and it won’t burn your choccie like in the microwave!
- Whilst your chocolate is melting place your digestive biscuits in a food bag, get out most of the air before sealing tightly.
- Using your hands (or a rolling pin) crush the biscuits in the bag – there should be a mixture of textures, some crushed finely and some small chunks
- Add your crushed biscuits into a mixing bowl as well as your coco pops, marshmallows, and any other fillings you chose e.g popcorn, nuts etc
- Melt your butter
- Add your butter into the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly (be careful when you remove the bowl from the saucepan- the steam can burn you)
- Add your syrup into the butter and chocolate mixture and mix thoroughly
- Pour your combined butter and chocolate mixture into your bowl with your fillings
- Mix the ingredients together until everything is coated in the chocolate mixture
- Transfer the mixture into a 20 x 20 baking tin (You can use any tin/dish really) or you can make mini rocky roads into cupcake/muffin cases
- Using the BACK of a metal tablespoon press down the mixture firmly into your tin/dish/case to it isn’t too crumbly
- Put into the fridge to cool for 45-60 mins
- Slice, enjoy and … tag Cook n Create in your masterpieces!
Psssst – You can also add toppings to your Rocky Roads or even trickle over some white chocolate etc! Get creative!
