Mint Aero Rocky Road

Time: 20 minutes + 2 hours chilling
Difficulty: Easy
Serves: 25+ pieces

This Mint Aero rocky road or tiffin is one of the easiest things you can make with kids as it’s a no bake dish. It’s perfect for using up chocolate, particularly if you have a lot lying around after Christmas or Easter – we used up all our old Christmas chocolate coins.

We’ve made a few different Rocky Roads (or tiffin or hedgehog slice), like our Easter one or our festive one so this one we made a bit differently, by adding some Mint Aero bubbles to it which we’d found in the supermarket. I really liked the pop of colour and subtle mint flavour it added. We even added some melted Mint Aero bubbles to the top to add to the decoration.

The beauty of rocky road is that you can add anything you like – we put raisins and marshmallows as well as different chocolates in ours. But you can add cranberries, other dried fruit, or nuts to yours.

Ingredients

150g plain biscuits, chopped (we used digestives and malted milk)
400g Milk Chocolate
125g Golden Syrup
125g Unsalted Butter
100g Mini Marshmallows
2 x 100g bags of Mint Aero bubbles
300g White Chocolate

How to make Mint Aero rocky road

Line an 8 or 9 inch square baking tin with baking paper and set it aside.

Melt the chocolate, butter and syrup.

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

Melt everything together on a double boiler (put your bowl on top of 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

While the butter/chocolate mixture is coming together get your kids started with the dry ingredients.

Measure the biscuits into a large bowl (you don’t need to be too precise). Give your kids 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, raisins and half the Mint Aero bubbles to your bowl. Give the Mint Aero bubbles a quick bash before you open the packet to break some of the bubbles up before you add them to the bowl.



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 for the Mint Aero rocky road

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. Once it’s melted, pour it over the top of your rocky road.

Cut the Mint Aero bubbles in rough halves and sprinkle them over the top of your rocky road. If you want, keep some back, melt them into some of your white chocolate and drizzle it over the top.

 

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