Tanya Burr Rocky Roads!

I picked up Tanya Burr’s new baking book, Tanya Bakes, and decided to have a look through and see if there were any recipes that could easily be made vegan. I was very excited to see that the Rocky Road recipe that Tanya included was quite simple and it didn’t take much to change the non-vegan ingredients.

Recipe:

150g butter (or a vegan spread)

350g dark chocolate

4tbsp golden syrup

250g Maryland cookies (or Tesco vegan digestives)

150g marshmallows (Freedom vegetarian mini marshmallows)

icing sugar to finish

Method:

Melt the butter, chocolate and syrup together in a saucepan on a low heat. Bash the cookies (in a plastic bag or inside a tea towel) with a rolling pin and aim to be left with big cookie chunks and crumbs too. Pour the crushed cookies into the chocolate/butter/syrup mixture. Pour in marshmallows and stir well. Pop the mixture into a tin and let it set in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight. Once your Rocky Road is set, dust it with icing sugar and cut it into bars.

I followed the above recipe although I did not include any biscuits and instead opted for a few more marshmallows. I included the correct amount of marshmallows according to the recipe then I added a few more until the consistency seemed right.

I also did not have a large enough, flat tin to be able to spread the mixture then cut it when set, so I decided to use a tin I have which has lots of small squares. I am not sure where I got this tin from (sorry!)

After making do with what I had in my kitchen, they turned out great! Me and Joe tried some and they were so delicious, even without the crushed up biscuits.
