- This is the ultimate just melt and stir together recipe, which works well for young bakers.
I moulded this into a round tin, but it would work in any shaped tin, square, cupcake or loaf tin.
Some white chocolate doesn’t melt well, I used Waitrose Belgian Chocolate and it worked perfectly.
The freeze dried strawberries added a slightly tart, refreshing strawberry flavouring to the white chocolate rocky road, which counteracts the sweetness of the rocky road mixture well.
- 115g butter
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup
- 200g White Belgian Chocolate
- 1 packet shortbread fingers 200g (10 fingers) each cut into three pieces
- 150g Mini White Marshmallows
- To sprinkle over the top:
- 7g Freeze Dried Strawberries
- 100g white chocolate chunks
- Prepare your chosen tin lined with cling film. I used a 15cm and 20cm round tin and made two flat cakes.
- In a pot add the butter, syrup and chopped white chocolate, stir over a low heat until the mixture melts.
- Stir in the biscuits and mini marshmallows, work quickly but don't worry if the marshmallow go stringy it will smooth into the pan perfectly.
- Press the mixture into the pan with a wooden spoon.
- Top the rocky road with the white chocolate chunks and sprinkle over the freeze dried strawberries.
- Chill in fridge for at least a couple of hours and enjoy
