I haven’t forgotten to post today, I’ve jusy been mad busy making Christmas goodies….
If you need a last minute gift for a teacher or friend them Nigella’s Christmas rocky road is perfect. It’s extremely quick, easy and adaptable. I’ve changed the original recipe from her book Nigella’s Christmas, adding in cranberries, Maltesers and digistives.
400 grams milk chocolate
175 grams soft butter
4 tablespoons golden syrup
200 grams amaretti biscuits/digestives
150 grams Maltesers
100 grams cranberries
200grams mini marshmallows
1 tablespoon icing sugar
Chop the chocolate small and then put into a heavy-based pan to melt with the butter and syrup over a gentle heat.
Break up all the biscuits and Maltesers; you want some pieces to crunch and some sandy rubble.
Take the pan off the heat, and add the crushed biscuits, Maltesers, cranberries and mini-marshmallows. Turn carefully to coat everything with syrupy chocolate.
Tip into a tray ( 9¼ x 12 inches), smoothing the top as best you can, although it will look bumpy. Refrigerate until firm enough to cut, which will take about 1½–2 hours.
Melt the white chocolate and pour over the top, and refrigerate for several minutes. Finally sprinkle with glitter…
