Everyone loves rocky road, a delightfully knobbly mixture of biscuit, marshmallow and chocolate that is so much fun to make at home, especially for children. They like measuring everything, melting the chocolate and eating most of the ingredients before they get to the mixing bowl! You can use just dark chocolate or a mixture of dark and milk chocolate (as in the ingredients, right), which creates something that is still toothsome but not too sweet. Kids often prefer the texture and taste of it. MAKES 24 SQUARES 175g unsalted butter 4 tbsp golden syrup 175g dark chocolate 100g milk chocolate 150g digestive biscuits, broken into small pieces but not crumbs 150g rich tea biscuits, broken into small pieces but not crumbs 100g mini marshmallows 50g Maltesers Line a 20cm-21cm square cake tin with baking parchment. Put the butter, syrup and both types of chocolate in a large pan over a low heat and melt together, stirring every now and then to mix well. You should end up with a smooth and silky mixture.
Add the biscuits and half the marshmallows to the pan and mix thoroughly.
Spoon into the lined tin and press down using the back of a wooden spoon. Scatter over the remaining marshmallows and the Maltesers and press down to make sure they stick to the warm chocolate mixture.
Refrigerate for at least 5 or 6 hours, preferably overnight, until hard. Cut into squares and enjoy!
