Rocky Road

The school fete finally comes, I have just bought the armbands for the kids for the rides.  They have been checking out the show bags and thinking how much money they should spend for the night.  It is the biggest fund raising of the year and the children just love it.  Besides the rides, there are stores selling goodies fitted into a jar for $1, cake and sweet store, arts and crafts, plants, second-hand clothing and toys, international foods, BBQ and ice-cream.  This year, my daughter makes some Rocky Road for the sweet store.  She learns making chocolate sweet at school and it is very easy to make.  You can remember the recipe straight away.  We cut it and put it into a large container in the fridge and pack it into small bags on the day of the fete.  I put in some speckled easter eggs into the bag to match the Easter theme.  Let's hope the weather is good for the night and we sure will have lots of fun.

Rocky Road

Milk Chocolate and/or dark chocolate, glazed cherries or chewy lollies such as snakes (chopped) and marshmallow

Lay a piece of baking paper onto a baking tray.  Gently mix together the cherries, lollies and marshmallow.  Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl under medium heat,  heat for 30 seconds then heat for 20 seconds a few times until the chocolate is melted.  Pour the chocolate over the marshmallow mix and stir with a spoon until it is all well mixed.  Refrigerate before cut into chucks.

Note: Switch to white chocolate for white Rocky Road.
