Festive Rocky Roads A.K.A ‘Snowy Lanes’

‘Snowy Lanes’ also known as Festive Rocky Roads here or Christmas Rocky Roads either way they are so good you’ll need to be careful you don’t woof them all at once! No baking required – has to be a good thing. Make them and pop them in an airtight container in the fridge they will keep for a week. I doubt they’ll last that long 🙂

To make them festive I’ve used cranberries, cherries, mini oreos and pistachios. You can add anything  you like, try and experiment a bit! Even though I say so myself they are too good.

So you know how it is when friends and family pop in over Christmas and you want to have coffee and something to offer, well these will do the trick. Delish – kids love them too – for me the perfect indulgent Christmas treat (get back in the cupboard Mince Pies …..  and make way for the Festive Rocky Roads)

So please have a go and let me know how you get on, please leave me a comment. I love your comments

Thanks Cx

Ingredients

  • 100g Dark ‘Real’ Chocolate
  • 50g Milk Chocolate
  • 75g Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
  • 100g Mini Oreos, halved
  • 50g Digestive biscuits, broken
  • 50g Dried Cranberries
  • 40g Pistachio Nuts or Brazils if you like
  • 60g Mini Marshmallows
  • 100g Glacé Cherries, halved
  • Icing sugar for dusting

Preparation Method

  1. Line a 24cm x 24cm tin with greaseproof paper and a little butter
  2. In a large pan melt the Chocolate (both types) butter and golden syrup over a low heat, stirring.
  3. Once melted remove from the heat
  4. Add Oreos, broken digestives, dried cranberries, Pistachios, marshmallows and Glacé cherries
  5. Stir really well until everything is covered in chocolate and tip into the tin, loosely press down
  6. Refrigerate for minimum 3 hours
  7. Remove from fried and cut into whatever size pieces you want. They are very rich so I suggest small – you can always go back for another. Finally dust with icing sugar
  8. Put in an airtight box in the fridge, they will keep for a week if they last that long….

We're in the process of perfecting our Christmassy rocky road too! You're so right about these being a great alternative to mince pies, everyone in my house (including the little ones) love mincemeat but I know a lot of people who would prefer something chocolatey instead and these would be perfect. I love the addition of Oreos too, I've not seen those used in rocky road before.
