A couple of weeks ago, I adorned my apron and got to baking for a charity coffee morning. Off course I shared the delights via Instagram and everyone went mad for them. I received about 100 messages looking for the recipes so I promised I would share. Unfortunately for those 100 people life was so hectic and I never got around to it, until now.
So here is the recipe for those very delicious creme egg rocky roads. I did share the mini egg cheesecake recipe on my Instagram but I think I’ll write it here on the blog for good measure and any other delicious recipes I find.
8 Creme Eggs full size
150g Unsalted butter
250g Dark chocolate
150g Milk chocolate
4 Tablespoons Golden syrup
180g Mini Creme Egg
180g Mini marshmallows
150g Digestive biscuits crushed
150g White chocolate
Yellow food colouring preferably the gel
Now how to….
Melt the butter in a large pan over a low heat or in the microwave like I did.
When it’s about half melted, add the dark chocolate, the milk chocolate and golden syrup. Over a very low heat, or microwave like me. melt it all and stir well.
Remove from the heat and set aside for 10 minutes until it’s cooled a bit.
Add the mini Creme Eggs, the marshmallows and the digestive biscuits, stir until it’s all coated.
Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with cling film (I find baking paper sticks a little) and press the mixture down firmly.
Meanwhile melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of steaming water. Make sure you keep the temperature very low as white chocolate can seize easily and if it does like it did for me, just add a tiny bit of water to soften if up again.
Take half of the melted chocolate and put in another small bowl, colour until very deep yellow using the gel food colour, just a very small amount at a time.
Drizzle the white chocolate and the coloured white chocolate over the rocky road, cut the full size Creme Eggs in half and sit in the chocolate, pressing them in firmly.
Allow to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Cut into slices using a very sharp knife.
And if your going to blog about it remember to take pictures lol I forgot.
You could use any other treat with this recipe like Malteasers, Smarties, or caramel eggs ummm. It’s so simple and goes down a treat with the little and big ones.
Hope you enjoy
