Easter egg rocky road

This is a reader recipe from the latest good food magazine and it was so yummy! Such a fun thing to make with panther for Easter. A little expensive as you need a whole 2 bags of mini eggs, but luckily I already had the cranberries and I always use cheapo chocolate in recipes. Well worth a try!

200g dark chocolate (recipe said 225 but this is daft, awkward and unnecessary!)

100g butter

2 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp golden syrup

100g rich tea biscuits

50g mini marshmallows

50g dried cranberries

200g chocolate mini eggs (2 bags… Quite an expensive recipe really!)

Start by lining a tray… You could make them thin in a traybake tin but I used a loaf tin with a liner. It makes about 10 bars at 399 calories each

Put the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of boiling water and melt until smooth and glossy

Remove from heat and add cocoa and syrup

Mix together

Leave to cool for 15 mins

Bash the biscuits in a freezer bag using a rolling pin (fun for kids!)

Stir the biscuits, cranberries, marshmallows and 2\3 of the mini eggs into the chocolate

Our the mix into the tin and press down until even

Scatter the remaining eggs over it (to make it look eastery!)

Chill in fridge for 1 hour, then cut into bars

Apparently this will keep for a week… Not sure whose house that’s in though, wouldn’t last that long here!
