I have to admit I am a hoarder. My kitchen cupboards seem to be filled…

If you read my blog regularly you will know that recently we had some dram as the water tank decided to leak and we had to get a new one. It was a bit of upheaval but luckily it is all fine now. This weekend my husband was away so I decided to spend some quality time with my son. I asked him what he wanted to do and his reply was play games and do some baking. I had been asked to go and get some Cadbury bite size and thought that we would be able to create some Rocky Road slices using them.
First we needed to go and get the ingredients. My husband was away and I did not have the car. Luckily it was a gorgeous day so we decided to walk up to our local Asda. My son went on his bike and we took the scenic route though the Rising Sun Park.
I created an photo album of my shopping trip, do go have a look. I bought the ingredients for the Rocky Road Slices including a selection of Cadbury Dairy Milk bite size.
I bought more than we needed so we would also have some to eat later. I love these little packets, they are perfect for sharing. It also means you can get several packets of different flavours to try. When we got back the challenge was on. It was time for swing ball.
I am pretty useless at swing ball but we had a good time hitting the ball to each other. The dog was a little confused, he was hoping to chase the ball and could not work out why it just went round and round. I am not entirely sure who won. It was hot work, so time to do some baking. My son appointed himself biscuit basher while I melted the chocolate.
He also bashed up some of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Bite Size to go in the slices. I don’t think he was too happy at me distracting him from the job by taking photos.Finally we managed to get them into the tin to cool. My son wanted to eat them straight away but they were a little bit gooey.
While we waited for them to set we played some x-box games and ate some of the Cadbury Bite Size.
The dog wanted to eat the chocolate as well so we gave him his Jumbone. I think he thought we would take it off him as he flew upstairs to eat it.
He looks remarkably sheepish considering he is a dog. It was a lovely way to spend time as a family and when the Rocky Road Slices we cool we thoroughly enjoyed them. My son was very pleased with himself by then as he had managed to beat me in lots of different games.
If you are interested in making the Rocky Road Slices this is the recipe:
Rocky Road Slices
- 225g (7½ oz) butter
- 3 tablespoons golden syrup
- 50g (2 oz) cocoa powder
- 125g (4 oz) digestive biscuits
- 100g (4 oz) marshmallows
- 75g (3 oz) Cadbury Choc Full of Clusters
- 75g (3oz) Cadbury Crunchie Rocks
- 200g (7oz) plain chocolate
- 200g (7oz) milk chocolate
- Chocolate sprinkles
- 75g (3 oz) dried cranberries
- Bring a pan of water to the boil. In a bowl add the butter, golden syrup and cocoa powder. Place the bowl in the water and stir until melted
- Crush the biscuits and break the Cadbury choc full of clusters and crunchie rocks into small pieces.
- Add the biscuits, cadbury choc full of clusters, Cadbury Crunhie Rocks, marshmallows to the melted butter mixture and stir together.
- Place into a greased tin and leave to chill. I used a 25 x 18 cm (10 x7 inch ) tin.
- When the mixture has cooled make the topping by melting the milk and plain chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.
- Pour the melted chocolate over the mixture and add the chocolate sprinkles and dried cranberries to the top.
- Place in the fridge until the chocolate is hard and then cut into squares.
Be warned this are very delicious but I am sure they are very fattening! Do let me know if you try them.
