I love everything about my new job apart from one thing. THEY MAKE ME BAKE. The first Friday, I did not bake and kind of ended up in the dog house. Wah. But but but, in my defence I told them that they did not give me enough time to plan something to bake. I don’t think they bought it, but never mind.
I’m just rubbish at stuff like that, it took me over 6 months to realise I was using the grill function on the oven instead of the oven function.
That was also the same day I realised the oven had a grill function.
So, at my old job, I was describing my dilemma about how I need to make something but am not a good cooker. They suggested Rocky Road.
It’s pretty amazing, really. You can just chuck anything in it and I couldn’t even see how anyone could get it wrong. Even me.
Rocky Road – Skinnedcartree Style.
8 Digestive Biscuits
300g Milk Chocolate
100g White Chocolate
85g Fudge Chunks
1 Tube Smarties
50g Pink and White Mini Marshmallows
Dr Oekter Eton Mess (c/o Degustabox)
- Crumble the biscuits into chunks.
- Break white chocolate into small chunks.
- Crush up the Smarties.
- Add the white chocolate, smarties into the biscuit mixture.
- Add the fudge chunks and the marshmallows and stir.
- Melt 300g chocolate.
- Pour into the biscuit mixture.
- Stir the mixture then spoon into a baking tray.
- Sprinkle the Dr Oekters Eton Mess on the top.
- Place in fridge for around 2 hours.
Very quick and easy to make!
We judge each thing that gets brought in, and pick a winner. We call it the Great British Bake-off.
Guess what – I WON!!! Everyone loved my creation and actually did’t believe I made it.
I have to up my game next week and make something even nicer.
You can add other things to the mixture, such as raisins, nuts, oats, dried fruit, even candy if you wish.
What would you put in your rocky road mixture?
