If it’s your first bakemas here, welcome. It is my annual mini-series in which I show you how to make a various Christmas themed baked goods – perfect if you want to impress your family and friends or if you’re hosting a Christmas party!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas – hope you’re celebrating with those you love this holiday! Today’s recipe doesn’t actually involve any baking as its a no-bake recipe! I’m going to be showing you how to make a batch of white chocolate rocky road!
Today is the final bakemas 2019! It feels like its gone so quickly this year but I’ve had a fantastic time bringing you a selection of recipes -I’ll be back in the New Year with more baking recipes/videos for you to enjoy!
Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?
50g Golden syrup.
300g White chocolate.
120g Party ring biscuits.
150g Mini marshmallows (I chose the white ones but feel free to use the pink and white ones).
100g White chocolate malt balls (the ones I used are from Poundland, thats here in the UK).
150g Custard cream biscuits.
White chocolate spread.
**I opted for fillings which fitted the ‘white chocolate’ version of this rocky road, please feel free to alter the ingredients to suit you and others who may be eating this.**
Before you get into making this rocky road, you’ll want to do some prep work. Weigh up all of your ingredients into bowls (breaking the biscuits up into smaller pieces), line your 8 inch square cake tin with parchment paper and get yourself a medium saucepan and wooden spoon ready.
Into your saucepan, place the butter, golden syrup and white chocolate and place that on the hob over a medium-high heat, allowing the mixture to melt and come together. Stir together until they have all melted and come together.
While your mixture is coming together on the hob, get yourself a large mixing bowl and into it place the party rings, mini marshmallows, white chocolate malt balls and custard creams. Give them a brief mix, juts to incorporate all the different bits and pieces.
Once your white chocolate mixture has come together, pour it over the assortments of bits in the large mixing bowl. Give the mixture all a good mix to ensure that all of the fillings have been fully coated and incorporated. This doesn’t take very long.
Now that the rocky road is ready, you’ll want to chill it but before you do that take your 8 inch lined square cake tin and pour the mixture into it. Levelling it off as best you can with a spatula and then transferring it to the fridge to chill for a minimum of 3-4 hours (or overnight, if you’re not in a rush).
Finally, once the rocky road has been chilled, you can remove it from the fridge and finish it off.
To finish off the rocky road, take some white chocolate spread and melt it in a microwave (don’t melt for longer than 10-12 seconds at a time, otherwise it might melt), once melted, pour directly on top of the rocky road and level it off so there is a level coating of the white chocolate spread, the place back in the fridge, just until its firm to the touch.
Finishing time! You can now take your knife and cut these up, how you do this is completely up to you. I went with 8 more than generous portions, which could easily be cut in half and make 16 generous portions but again, this is up to you.
That’s all for today guys, I hope you enjoyed. If you did, don’t forget to share this recipe with your family and friends and enjoy it.
