Rocky Road with Maltesers

The daughter of our friend is eleven and she likes to bake, but her Mum doesn't, so as they were coming to visit, I thought we could make something quick while she was with us.

Fortunately, I had all the ingredients in the pantry so we were able to get cracking.  I did work from a recipe I found on line, but tweeked it a little here and there.


300g Dairy Milk Chocolate (for main recipe)
100g Dairy Milk Chocolate (for the topping)
100g Plain/dark Chocolate (for the topping)
200g Digestive Biscuits (crushed and chunky)
125g Butter
3 tablespoons Golden Syrup
100g Mini Marshmallows
Box of Maltesers

Grease & line a 7-9" square tin (I use a foil tray as it saves on washing up and it is easy to tear the bake away from the foil).

Place the 300g chocolate, syrup and butter into a saucepan and melt gently, stirring to make sure it doesn't catch on the bottom of the pan.  

Add the crushed biscuits, marshmallows and a handful of the maltesers and mix together.  Then press into the prepared tin or tray.

In a bowl, break up the remaining milk chocolate and plain/ dark chocolate and melt gently (I use the microwave but keep an eye on it).

Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the mix in the tin, pushing the chocolate to the edges and corners.  I then threw the remaining maltesers onto the chocolate top.  (My little helper also added mini eggs to the top so it's ideal as an Easter treat too).

Leave to set before cutting up into about 16 portions.  (You can accelerate the setting time by popping it into the fridge for half an hour).

I'm not even going to think about the calorie count of this, but you will definitely need a cup of tea or coffee with this!
