How to Make Rocky Road Brunch Bars

Hi everyone, I haven't done a baking post since before Christmas when I made my cute little shaped Christmas Biscuits.  So today I thought I would show you how I make these yummy Rocky Road bars.  They're really quick and easy to make, so if you fancy having a go keep on reading :-)

Once you have all your ingredients sorted out, measure out the butter. . .

The chocolate, all broken up. . .

And the syrup and mix it all together in a saucepan on a low heat, until everything is fully melted together and smells amazing!  Keep stirring it all otherwise it may stick and burn.

Next put half the amount of cookies into a clean food bag and and carefully bash them with a rolling pin.  Don't go too crazy as you'll want to leave some pieces bigger than others so you have some nice big crunchy pieces in the bars.

Add these to the mixture and then do the same with the rest of the cookies.  Add them slowly and stir in well.

Then it's time to add the final ingredient, the little marshmallows.  It's so funny, I never even liked marshmallows before I made these bars but I thought well they're part of the recipe I'll go with it, but now I love them lol :-)  Again add these a little at a time and stir in well.  One thing I would say, is make sure you use a big enough saucepan, unlike me, it nearly overflowed everywhere!! :-/

Once everything is well mixed, carefully pour the mixture into the tin, make sure you've already lined the tin with greaseproof paper first.  Pop the tin in the fridge and allow it all to fully set for about 2-3 hours or even over night if you have the time. 

You'll need a good sharp knife to cut them in to pieces but once done, they look great.  You can add a sprinkle of icing sugar if you like to add some decoration or just have them without, totally optional.

Finally, enjoy!  I hope you like this post, if you have a go at making these, send me a pic of them on Twitter @DaniJ72 I'd love to see them :-)
Until Next Time Stay Happy
