Ruby & Gold Rocky Road

 150 g Dark chocolate
 150 g Milk chocolate
 125 g Unsalted butter
 2 tbsp Golden syrup
 125 g Rich tea biscuits
 125 g Glace cherries
 125 g Milk chocolate coated honey comb bars
 125 g Mini marshmallows
 1 tsp Icing sugar, to dust

Grease and line a 20cm square tin and line with parchment paper allowing a little overhang to help remove the set rocky road later.


Melt together the dark chocolate, milk chocolate, butter, and golden syrup over a low heat stirring constantly.


Pour a little of the chocolate into a small bowl and set aside. Let the rest of the chocolate cool while you get on with preparing the rest of the ingredients or pour into a large mixing bowl to speed up the cooling process.


Crush the biscuits and honeycomb bars in your hands and let the pieces fall into the chocolate, you want pieces of all sizes. If you prefer add them to a zip lock bag and bash with a rolling pin and tip into the melted chocolate.


Add the glace cherries and marshmallows and stir everything together with a spatula. Tip into the lined tin, drizzle over the reserved chocolate and smooth the top a little before placing in the fridge for at least two hours to set.


Remove from the fridge lift the rocky road out of the tin by the parchment paper. Make four cuts down and four across to make 16 squares. Pile on a plate. Add the icing sugar to a small tea strainer and dust the rocky road with icing sugar.
