So bad it’s actually *good* for you.

When in a foul tempered over-tired and all round miserable state there really is no better remedy than throwing together as much sugar/syrup/butter/chocolate as you can find and making a batch of Rocky Road
(that you are then too tired to contemplate eating).

Work are going to love me. Fact.

Pink wafer biscuits, marshmallows, white chocolate chips and honeycomb pieces. I have no idea how much of what I used…it was a case of chuck it all together and hope for the best.

The chocolate coating consists of 225g un-salted butter, 2tbsp cocoa powder, 2tbsp caster sugar, 2tbsp golden syrup and 100g plain chocolate.
Melt all that together, leave to cool for ten minutes or so, then add in your sugary goodness.

(you could use anything you want; dried fruit, malteasers, biscuits, mini eggs, gummy bears….)

I started off with bite sized pieces, then got bored and smushed the rest in to a lined tray.

Chilled it in the fridge for a couple of hours,

and voila!

The bigger one was still setting, hence no photo. Apologies for the shocking photo quality, my camera was throwing a hissy fit and I really didn’t have the energy to fight it!

Onwards and upwards.

((Ironic that I work in a doctors surgery full of chocoholics, right?))

Let me know if you make this and what your favourite combinations are!
