Easter Recipe – Easter Egg Rocky Road
Easter is approaching fast and now is the time to start planning for the day. What better way than to create some fun Easter recipes and jamming your kitchen cupboards full of chocolate treats and finding activities for the kids to participate in. What better way to incorporate all of the above than to get the kids involved in some sticky cooking fun!
One of the greatest parts of cooking with the kids/grandkids is you can give them the tasks usually avoided by adults and, if they’re old enough, you can even make them wash up and clean down the worktops and kitchen cabinets! This fun and easy Easter recipe will tire out the little ones and still leave time to enjoy your hard work with a well earned cup of tea!
- 100g Mini Marshmallows
- 100g Mini Chocolate Eggs
- 100g Digestive Biscuits, broken into pieces
- 500g Milk Chocolate, broken into pieces
- 50g fudge pieces
- 4 Crème Eggs, chopped into pieces
- Line a square brownie tin with greaseproof paper and set aside. If you don’t have any greaseproof paper lurking in your cupboards, cling film works just as well, just make sure you don’t have too many creases in the lining.
- Take the broken chocolate and melt in a double boiler (a heatproof bowl over a saucepan filled with water – always ensure that the bowl doesn’t touch the water) on the hob or place chocolate chunks into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time, remove, stir and heat again until all chocolate is melted. Beware – milk chocolate melts quickly and so continuous checking and stirring is necessary to prevent burning.
- In the meantime, put the marshmallows, fudge, broken crème eggs and the digestive biscuit pieces into a large bowl, give them a really good stir to even them out. (See photo)
- Remove the chocolate from the heat as soon as it has completely melted and pour into the bowl of mixed ingredients. Mix together thoroughly, ensuring that every piece is covered but work quickly – the chocolate will cool extremely fast making it almost impossible to move around.
- Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared brownie tin and top with chocolate eggs. Place in the fridge for around 2-3 hours until set.
- Once set, remove from the fridge and cut into small squares – these treats are so decadent that you’ll only need small pieces to gain your chocolate fix!
