Use up your Easter chocolate

If the Easter bunny was very nice to you last week, you may find that you have more chocolate than you know what to do with. These rocky road chocolate squares are a totally fail-safe recipe to have up your sleeve if you’ve got some leftover chocolate. It is no-cook and a great way to occupy the kids for an hour or two.

  • Take 200g digestives and place them in a freezer bag.
  • Squeeze out the air and seal the bag, and then bash with a rolling pin, until you have some ‘biscuit sand’ and some larger bits. This is a great job for the kids to do, or leave it for yourself if you have some stress to get rid of.
  • In a largish saucepan melt 300g leftover Easter eggs, 125g of butter, and 3 tablespoons of golden syrup over a low heat, stirring regularly.
  • Once it has all melted, stir to combine, and take off the heat. Add the crushed biscuits, 100g mini marshmallows, and 100g raisins or other dried fruit if you want to feel like you’ve got something vaguely healthy in there, and stir well.
  • Scoop the whole lot out into a lined brownie tin and allow to set in the fridge. If your kids are helping, they might like to add some decoration to the top in the form of sprinkles, or even the odd mini egg if you still have some left.
