Leftover Easter chocolate and leftover wine are myths in our house… except that having a toddler in the house means that the amount of chocolate available around the Easter season had increased (even for me!).
Monkey is 2,5 years old and although we only gifted her one (Peppa Pig) chocolate Easter Egg… I had purchased more goodies for our Easter table (for the adult guests) and of course… this meant more chocolate in the house after the celebratory luncheon. I do tend to “over cater”….
I was flipping through Jamie’s America cookbook and kept coming back to his Rocky Road recipe… typically a type of biscuit/chocolate hybrid with nuts, marshmallows, etc etc… so good….
Handful of pretzels
Handful of mini marshmallows
Handful of pistachio nuts (roughly chopped)
leftover mini eggs
- Melt the chocolate over a water-bath
- Stir in chopped nuts, marshmallows, pretzels, etc. leaving a handful to one side for decorative purposes
- smooth the mix over a grease-paper in a baking tin and then “decorate” with your remaining ingredients
- Leave to cool/set (I put mine in the fridge for 20minutes before breaking or cutting into chunks)
