The dark side: plain chocolate rocky road 

  
My son asked for rocky road made with plain chocolate, digestives, mini marshmallows and glacé cherries. So I obliged. And the result was rich but not sickly, and really rather delicious. 

For 16 bars you need

  • 300g plain chocolate
  • 125g butter
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 150g digestive biscuits, some crushed to dust; some bite size chunks
  • 200g glacé cherries
  • 150g mini marshmallows 

Melt together the chocolate, butter and syrup in a bowl over simmering water. 

Once melted mix into the dry ingredients. Pack into a lined tin and leave to set. Cut into bars, scoff.
