Epic Rocky Road

rocky road

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.

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?

    That’s sweet how they are expecting a treat from you every Friday. 🙂 I remember what I worked in an office, I made muffins for my lot pretty much every week. 🙂

    These look nice, can’t really go wrong with chocolate and yummy goodies all mixed together. Hopefully they went down a treat. We do the Bake Off at work, I used to make Eaton Mess, Scones and Victoria sandwich, fresh cream and strawberries. Look forward to your other treats. What is the new job? Doing similar to before or totally different? Hope you are enjoying it. I hate starting new jobs Lucy x
