Rocky Road II

Rocky Road

250g dark chocolate (70% or higher)
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup pecan nuts (toasted)
1 cup digestive biscuits (graham crackers) broken into small pieces
½ cup raisins (sun maid of course)
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
¼ cup cream
Line a 8x8 square pan with waxed paper

Melt the chocolate and the butter in the microwave or on the stove top, add the cream, sugar, and mix thoroughly.

Add the nuts, biscuit pieces, and the marshmallows. Mix until just combined.

Spread into lined pan and refrigerate until firm.

Dust with icing sugar and cut into squares or rectangles.

You can also try adding dried fruit (dried cherries, coconut, dried mango, dried strawberries, etc) or candy (m&m’s, reece’s pieces, Turkish delight cut into small pieces), or use white chocolate instead of dark

cook's notes: we made this a few night ago with H, and his friends. M was unimpressed by the addition of the raisins, but the kids loved adding them in the tiny little raisin boxes. The use of the plain simple digestive biscuits made for a nice salty sweetness that made the rocky road my best yet. The plate is one that H painted last summer and though rocky road is a bit fugly to look at its divine to eat.

Lovely plate and all my dishes look fug. I am of the Chinese school of thought, it's the taste that counts. :D Shame CT and her friends are a little young for this, though I am tempted to make it for Christmas (chopped nuts of course).
