Thought it was time to share a recipe again. I seem to find something I like, usually some form of chocolate, and make it over and over again till everyone is sick of it and this is my latest. This recipe is from Nigella Express. I am a bit of a Nigella fanatic but I’ll save that for another post! Think S’mores in a bar form. Yum Yum!
Rocky Road Crunch Bars
1 stick plus 1 tablespoon soft unsalted butter
10 ounces semisweet chocolate broken into pieces (I just use chocolate chips)
1/4 cup corn syrup
8 ounces plain hard and crunchy cookies (I use Nilla Wafers)
2 cups mini marshmallows
powdered sugar for dusting
Melt the butter, chocolate and syrup in a heavy based saucepan. Scoop out 1/2 cup of the melted mixture and save for later.
Put the cookies in a zip lock bag and bash them with a rolling pin. Looking for both crumbs and chunks (not too many crumbs though).
Fold the cookie pieces in the chocolate mixture and then mix in the marshmallows.
Pour into a 9 inch square foil tray (line with foil). Flatten the best you can with a spatula. Pour over the reserved chocolate mixture and smooth over the top.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Cut into the squares and dust with powdered sugar!
