Nigella Lawson's Rocky Road
My lovely friend Ellie makes this rocky road and it’s gorgeous. Based on a Nigella Lawson recipe, the rough and tumble of sandy buttery biscuit, nuggets of soft pillowy marshmallow and folds of silky melted chocolate is unapologetically indulgent. The recipe used is this one (www.nigella.com/recipes/view/rocky-road-crunch-bars-25) but any biscuits found in the cupboards can be used, from ginger nuts to biscotti and the plain digestive. I've found that children tend to like even sweeter versions of this, so instead of using all milk chocolate or all dark, melt together a big Cadburys milk chocolate bar and then a smaller one of Bourneville. Some broken up honeycomb shards of crunchie bar are also amazing in this.
