Festive Rocky Road

There's lots of Christmas recipes around at the moment and after the success of my Reindeer Cup Cakes I though I'd do another! 

Now, I've seen all the short clips and links for Festive Rocky Road but nearly every single recipe is American and features ingredients that we simply don't have here! So after a bit of research I've created this original recipe! 

It is very easy to do and if done correctly is something of a showstopper!

Start by breaking up the digestives and candy cakes. I put mine into a sandwich bag and hit them with the rolling pin.  Cut the strawberry pencils into pieces 1 - 2 cm long. Set aside for later.

Ingredients chopped and smashed

Over a low heat melt the spread, honey and chocolate in the saucepan, mixing together as you go.

Once its melted the mixture should be thick and almost gloopy.

Pour into the mixing bowl and quickly add the digestives and marshmallows. If the marshmallows are large ones break them up into smaller pieces.

The mixture will start to get stiff as it cools so mix as quick as you can and then pour into your baking tray.
