The hardest thing about this recipe will be waiting for this to set!
Or trying to stop yourself from eating all the ingredients before they have even got into the recipe!
I literally have to keep telling myself no…no Jen, NO…during every step of this recipe. I feel I need to try every single ingredient just to make sure it tastes OK.
What more could anyone want? This recipe isn’t just a delight to eat and enjoy but it’s also perfect to teach youngsters to make. What child doesn’t like sticky syrup, melted chocolate and bashing biscuits with a rolling pin until the bag explodes.
It’s a recipe I fondly remember making at after school care when I was a child. It was exciting to be involved with making the recipe. But the best bit was getting to lick the bowl. And I still lick the bowl to this day.
The recipe is made to your own preference. You decide what yummy goodies go inside, use your imagination and go wild. It really is a simple bake that is perfect for all the family.
So go on get to the shops pick all your favourite naughty treats and whack them into a big bowl for an awesome ‘Oh so naughty rocky road’. And if you are like me who doesn’t have any guests coming over to eat your baking…then don’t be guilty keeping them all for yourself. I ate all the rocky roads to myself too and I don’t feel one single bit of guilt.
Enjoy the naughtiness!
