Valentine Rocky Road

Tuesday, 6 February 2018
A quick, easy and fun Valentine themed traybake that's ideal for kids to help make. The classic Rocky Road takes on a romantic twist with the addition of Love Hearts, Rolos, Lips and Jammie Dodgers. This no bake Chocolate Tiffin is sure to be loved by anyone with a sweet tooth. 





Love is in the air! 14th February is looming so I've got a romantic recipe to share. If I was being a proper food blogger I really should have made and blogged this Valentine Recipe weeks ago but as per usual it's totally last minute. But why restrict your love to just one day of the year? This will taste good at anytime! My Christmas Gingerbread Man Rocky Road was a huge success as is the perennial favourite of Scotland in a Traybake aka Tunnock's Teacake Rocky Road. What could I add to the chocolate, biscuit and marshmallow comb to signify true love?



First up was an obvious one. Love Hearts. Clearly I haven't indulged in these in rather a long time as I was somewhat perturbed to find that in addition to the quotes there are now emojis. I am so not down with the kidz. Rolos were an obvious choice to me although when I mentioned it to my teenagers they had absolutely no clue about the concept of saving your last rolo for someone. Again I feel very old. Next I needed some hearts but I couldn't find any. I'm sure I've seen Heart Shaped Jelly Beans and whilst you do get Haribo Hearts in Starmix I couldn't track them down individually. I did however decide that it was OK to sacrifice the teeth from packs of Teeth & Lips. Last to the party were Jammie Dodger Minis.


Do please let me know in the comments of any other potential sweets that could be included, I'm sure there must be lots of others that would work within the theme. I always LOVE to see your versions of my recipes so be sure to share any photos of your Valentine Rocky Road and tag me on social media. Now for the name. I started and finished with it as Valentine Rocky Road but along the way there were a number of different options suggested. Love is a Rocky Road, Rocky Road of Love, Love's Rocky Road, Rocky Road to my Heart. We event went French - after all it is the language of love! Le Chocolat Boulevard d'amour or Rocky (Valentin) de P'tits Coeurs. Whetever you call it - I guarantee that if you have a sweet tooth you'll love it!


Valentine Rocky Road
Le Chocolat Boulevard d'amour

Rocky Road
75g Butter
500g Milk Chocolate (split into 300g and 150g)
4 Tbsp Golden Syrup
200g Digestive Biscuits
75g Mini Marshmallows

Romantic Toppings
3 x packs Rolo
4 x snack packs Jammie Dodgers Minis
2 x packs Love Hearts
3 x packs Teeth & Lips (use Lips only, the teeth are chefs perks!)

Optional
Red Sprinkles
Edible Glitter

Melt the butter, 300g of chocolate and the golden syrup in a heavy-based saucepan.
Put the Digestives into a bag and bash them with a rolling pin. You are aiming for a mixture of crumbs and pieces of biscuits.
Fold the bashed biscuits into the melted chocolate mixture in the saucepan, then add the mini marshmallows and approximately half of your 'Romantic Toppings'
Tip into a greased/lined traybake tin (aprox 34cm x 20 cm) and flatten with a spatula.
Melt the remaining 150g of chocolate in a microwave or over a bain marie and drizzle it over the top of the Rocky Road. (I use a disposable piping bag for this)
Nestle the remaining half of the 'Romantic Toppings' securely into the Rocky Road and top with Sprinkles and Edible Glitter.
Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours or overnight before cutting into chunks.

    Could it be done with white chocolate only?

  6. Brilliant, though I too am feeling old too having heard that your children had not heard of the last rolo being kept for that someone special. ;-)

  7. Sharing the love. I find tiffin completely irresistible and now I have a strong urge to go off and buy the necessary ingredients and make some. Not quite what I'd planned to do with my day, but .... :D

    Thanks for sharing with #WeShouldCocoa
