A couple of weeks ago Mel and I were lucky enough to receive some goodies from Pascall, we're both having a crazy busy year and I know that I am finding it hard to come up with new recipes - the timing was perfect as we are both on school 'holidays' which means a little more time to get in the kitchen and get inspired. The holiday weather has not been great which has meant lots of time inside. Max, who is now three (and a half, I must add the half or I'll be in trouble), is taking a holiday from daycare and has been eyeing up the bags of lollies in the cupboard since they arrived, so I decided that it would be nice to make something with them together. Max always wants to bake with me but it's more watching and adding in ingredients that I measure out, Rocky Road was perfect as he could do most of the work!
375 grams chocolate buttons, melted
200 grams Pascall Fruit Jubes
180 grams Pascall Marshmallows
Melt the chocolate, this can be done in a double boiler (a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water, you must ensure that the water does not touch the bottom of your bowl) or in the microwave.
Once the chocolate is melted, set aside for 3-5 minutes to cool slightly.
While the chocolate cools line a slice tin with wax baking paper, I used a 20x20 square tin.
Add marshmallows and jubes to the melted chocolate and fold them through the chocolate so that they are coated nicely.
Pour your mixture into your prepared tin and use a spatula to spread it evenly.
Put your Rocky Road in the fridge to set for approximately 2 hours. Cut into bite sized pieces (I use a large warm knife as it cuts through the chocolate nicely) and store in an airtight container.
Max loved making this and took great pride in taking it along to our holiday catch up with our coffee group. You can change the recipe up and add in whatever your favourite lollies are, dried fruit, or nuts. If you and your kids have been in the kitchen this holidays, especially if you have made anything from BMTB we'd love to see the photos!
