Difficulty: 20 minutes + 2 hours chilling

Time: Easy

Serves: 25+ pieces

We’ve made rocky road (or hedgehog slice, or tiffin) before but this Easter rocky road is extra special because it’s Easter themed and full of mini eggs and cream eggs! Rocky road is one of the easiest things to make with really small children as, with the exception of melting chocolate, there’s no cooking involved. Hannah and Lewis really enjoyed getting to bash the biscuits and eggs and mixing everything together. And then getting to share it with their friends (it’s too good to keep to yourself!)



Ingredients

400g Milk/Dark Chocolate
125g Golden Syrup
125g Unsalted Butter
100g Mini Marshmallows
150g Digestives, chopped
4-5x 90g Bags of Mini Eggs
1-2x 89g Bags of Mini Creme Eggs (pop them in the freezer for an hour or so before to make them easier to cut)
300g White Chocolate

Method

Line an 8/9 inch square baking tin with baking paper and leave to one side

Melt the chocolate, butter and syrup together

Get your children to help you break the chocolate (400g) into pieces and pop in a heat proof bowl. Measure the butter (125g) and add to the chocolate. Pop the bowl on your scales, reset them back to zero and measure in your golden syrup (125g).

  

Melt everything together on a double boiler (pop your bowl on a saucepan with simmering water). Or you could put it in the microwave and zap it for short intervals until everything has melted.

Stir everything together so it is nice a smooth. Be careful not to overheat it.

Measure the dry ingredients

Measure the biscuits (150g) into a large bowl (you don’t need to be too precise). Give your toddlers something to bash the biscuits – we used spurtles and the end of a rolling pin – and let them attack them until they are in smallish pieces.

 

Add the mini marshmallows (100g) to your bowl.

Before taking the mini eggs out of their packets, get your kids to bash them so they are broken into chunks. They might need a bit of help as they can be a bit tough. Add them to the bowl, saving one packet for the end.

 

Chop the cream eggs into halves/quarters. This is a task for the grownups unless you trust your little ones with sharp knives.

Mix everything together

Pour the melted chocolate mixture into your biscuit mixture. Get your little ones to get everything a good mix.

Pour into your tin and pat it down with the back of your spoon until it is evenly spread.

 

Prepare the topping

Get your wee chefs to break the white chocolate up and pop in a bowl. Melt it in a double boiler or in the microwave.

Pour it over the top of your rocky road and sprinkle over the last bag of mini eggs.

  

Pop your Easter rocky road in the fridge to set for a few hours, slice and enjoy!

      • Thanks. My kids love making rocky road and cheesecake mainly because of all the bashing they get to do!
