Delicious Chocolate Orange Rocky Road, Chocolatey, Biscuity, Mallowy and finished off with Terry’s Chocolate Orange Minis.
IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS!!! Are you excited? I am soooo excited, I am feeling so festive this year. I have lots of festive bakes planned I hope you like the first one – Terry’s Chocolate Orange Rocky Road. I don’t know about you but the only time I really eat Terry’s Chocolate Orange is at Christmas I know it is available all year long but as soon as Halloween is over shops are stocked up on Terry’s Chocolate Orange the dark chocolate orange is available to buy, and you can get share bags full of different flavours.
For me, Christmas is all about overindulgence. I LOVE chocolate, chocolate truffles, chocolate Santas, chocolate selection boxes chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. So Terry’s Chocolate Orange Rocky Road is one of the ultimate indulgences. The Rocky Road recipe I already have on my blog has been popular so I had to adapt it for Christmas. I cut mine into nine squares this gives you a big chunk of Rocky Road (I hate sharing) you can make them into 12 if you would prefer a smaller slice.
I decided to make Terry’s Chocolate Orange into Rocky Road bars because I seem to have a lot of Cupcake and Cake recipes on my blog. I know its Sarahs’ Cake Blog but I wanted to post more than just different flavoured cakes. I recently posted my Millionaire Shortbread recipe which has also been quite popular especially because it is completely different from the cake recipes I have been posting recently. Let me know what you think if there are any recipes you would like to see whether it be cakes or biscuits, cookies, macaroons, or if you have tried the recipes out leave me comments or get in touch on any of my social media and if you make any of my posts make sure you use the #sarahscakeblog so I can see them!!
Anyway back to the recipe at hand. Rocky Road is such a fun and easy recipe to make, if you have kids who are on school holidays then why not get them involved and have a family baking day. Usually, in Rocky Road I use Maltesers but I wasn’t sure how they would taste with the chocolate orange segments so I replaced them with good old digestive biscuits. You really could use any biscuit HobNobs would work well with this recipe or if you are reading this post from America then Grahams Crackers would work well too. I use Pink and White Marshmallows in my Rocky Road to give it a bit of colour so it doesn’t just look like big blocks of Chocolate. I also used milk chocolate just because I don’t like dark chocolate. If you want to you can make this recipe with dark chocolate and dark chocolate Terry’s Chocolate Orange or you could mix it up and use milk chocolate and dark chocolate.
This recipe makes 9-12 bars.
400g Milk Chocolate
200g Digestives Biscuits
250g Terry’s Chocolate Orange Mini
125g Unsalted Butter
75g Golden Syrup
- Line a 9×9 inch square baking tray with greaseproof paper and leave to the side.
- In a bowl crush up your digestives, I do this by hand just because the digestives will be different sizes some will be small others will be big.
- Measure out the marshmallows and leave to one side. This will be easier when your chocolate is melted to mix all the ingredients in.
- In a pan melt the milk chocolate, butter and syrup on a low heat. Mixing continuously until all melted. The chocolate should be smooth.
- Remove the pan for the heat and add in 175g of the crushed digestives, 80g of the Marshmallows and mix until they are all coated in the chocolate. Finally, add in 200g of the Terry’s Chocolate Orange and mix.
- Tip the mixture into the baking tin making sure you push it into all the corners and there are no gaps.
- Finally, sprinkle the rest of marshmallows, digestive biscuits and Terry’s Chocolate Orange over the top of your rocky road and push them gently down so that they stick to the chocolate.
- Leave in the fridge overnight or until the chocolate has set before cutting it into individual squares. I cut it mine into 9 squares.
