Delicious Rocky Roads Bars

Last week was a too hectic so I thought to rest and relax in weekends but when you have some crazy friends around then who will let you be lazy and sleep in your couch. Leela asked me to join for dinner this Saturday night. I thought it will be some close friends gathering in her house but to my surprise she  throw a wild card party for us. I am talking about wild in the spirit of intense, unsuppressed emotion-excitement, delight, surprise, joy, happiness and fun. On this Saturday night, all friends poured life into this party coupled with the spooky atmosphere; it was like a post Halloween themed night. The whole evening was delicious and wonderfully entertaining. Leela and Suman her husband are wonderful host, superb cook and know how to throw a party. All those glamorous and delicious foods are telling us go ahead, salivate. In my last post I wrote a lot about restricting in our dessert intake and truly telling you when it comes to the dessert section of the table I thought yes I can show courage to skip this section, I was ignoring all those snowy peaked ice creams and dessert but when I saw those small Rocky roads bars the wild child within me just jump out and I literally fall weak at the knees and I can’t resist to take a piece and when I have it…….ummmm… delicious! Back home next day I called her for the recipe and she told me about it which I am sharing with you today. In this festive season such recipe is a keeper and is simple and easy to make. I hope you will love it.
Unsalted Butter       125g
Chocolate            300g
Mini marshmallows    100g
Desiccated coconut   4 table spoon
Chopped peanut       1/4  cup
Chopped walnut       1/4  cup
Glazed cherries      1/4  cup
Fresh orange zest    1 teaspoon
Golden syrup         2 to 3 table spoon
Icing sugar          2 tsp to dust


First of all heat the chocolate butter and golden syrup in a heavy based saucepan over gentle heat. Remove from heat. Now fold the marshmallows, desiccated coconut, peanut, walnut, cherries and orange zest in this melted chocolate mixture. Mix well. Pour the mixture into line sliced tin smooth the top with a spatula. Refrigerate it until set or overnight. Use a warm knife to cut into equal size squares then dust it with icing sugar.
This can be a great dessert choice for your Christmas parties and both kids and grown up can’t resist to fall for your Rocky Road Bars.
If you have any wild party idea for Christmas and New Year do share with me I would love to know about them and I hope we all will have a rocking festive season.

Be Happy And Stay Healthy. -image source
