Up-cycling the Boring Leftover Christmas Biscuits...


I don't know about you, but we still have LOADS of biscuits left over from the mountains we received from Christmas. And we seemed to have picked out all the tasty chocolatey ones. In a stroke of genius we decided to mash them all up and combine with leftover raisins and cherries from the Christmas pudding to make this glorious Rocky Road. I did it all by eye and guesswork and it came out pretty good. SO this recipe has no quantities, so you can make it just how you like it! Here's how it goes:

Ingredients: 
Biscuits, Marshmallows, Butter, Chocolate, Golden Syrup, anything else you fancy chucking in!

Method: 
1// Start to melt the chocolate - I used one of the big value bars. Once melting add a knob of butter and a generous few blobs of the syrup. Stir well!

2// Meanwhile put the biscuits in a sandwich bag, wrap in a tea towel and take your rolling pin to them. You want an assortment of big and little chunks with some sandy biscuit in between. 

3// Add the biscuits bit by bit to the chocolaty mixture. Add as much as you want to, I did it till I probably wasn't any chocolate left to coat my biscuits (we had that many...)

4// Add marshmallows, raisins etc. I melted some marshmallow to go on the top... big mistake. It was like a gooey cement!

5// Pour into a greased tin and put in the fridge for a few hours. 


VOILA! One up-cycled tin of biscuits!

  1. I love rocky road :) Yours looks lovely--I tend to toss in whatever's in the cupboard, too, which usually means chunks of candied ginger and glace cherries!
