Easter Themed Rocky Road

I'm trying to get in some Easter baking this year after not making anything Easter themed last year. Creme eggs and mini eggs are some of my favourite treats so of course I'm going to try and shove them into everything I bake. Today I tried some mini egg rocky road and they turned out great, lovely taste and they set and hold their shape really well. I sort of made up the recipe myself by looking around at the basic measurements of rocky road - the great thing about them is you can swap and choose which ingredients you want. Plus they are so easy - you don't even have to turn your oven on. Have an experiment!

Recipe
200g milk, dark or half and half chocolate.
2 tbsp golden syrup
130g butter
80g mini marshmallows
100g bag of mini eggs
150g digestives
First, melt together the chocolate, butter and golden syrup. I did this in the microwave - just keep an eye on it and stir at each interval.





Put the digestives in a food bag and bash with a rolling pin. Make sure you've got a variety of sizes - crumbs as well as bigger chunks.

Add the marshmallows and half of the mini eggs.

Pour it into a tray and press in the other half of the mini eggs. Then put it in the fridge and let it set for 2-3 hours. It should be firm enough to cut and hold its shape when it comes out.

And there you have it, Easter themed rocky road! Mini eggs taste amazing in this, but you can change them for anything you think will go. Just try and keep the measurements about the same of whatever you swap them for. Enjoy!
