It’s that time of year – Easter! Which means it’s time to indulge in some chocolate without feeling too guilty about it. Martha Norris, of Simply Martha, has a rocky road recipe to share with you. Enjoy!
Chocolate? It must be Easter time! The two very much work together. As someone who lives a life of healthy balances, choosing to eat everything in moderation, I, too, enjoy a good chocolate recipe! Rocky road has been something I’ve wanted to make for a while. Is it a cake? Is it a biscuit? It’s a whole separate category! I love the fact it is so different to any other dessert. I wanted to try and make this simple and easy to follow, using ingredients most students might have. There is nothing more annoying than getting to a recipe and having none of the ingredients around!
I like making food that brings joy to others and I have found that this a great dessert that is easy to share with friends or family. Ever thought about baking a dessert as a gift? By a glass jar, add your rocky road and wrap a little bow around it – a perfect personalised gift for you to share (without it costing a lot!).
