On the Rocky Road!

Well, F1 is back and wasn’t it a great start to the season. With the underdogs of Brawn GP dominating in qualifying and the the race itself. It is quite impressive considering that they did not really have a team until 3 weeks ago. I would like to wish Brawn GP and Jenson Button especially, lots of luck for the future. You have had an awful few years and survived to tell the tale. I will be cheering for you!

On another F1 note, I would like wish Mark Webber good luck for the 2009 season and congratulate for the progress he has made despite his injury over the winter months. Mark is known has Mr Unlucky in F1 and I would like to tell him to keep his chin up, as his time for a GP win will come. Mark, you are favourite F1 driver and I will be cheering for you!

Today’s recipe is called Rocky Road. It is an adaptation of Nigella Lawson’s recipe from Nigella Express It is a really simple recipe to make and it is the one recipe that I get the most compliments for, except for my curry recipe. (The secret to my curry will be revealed at a later date!)

50g unsalted butter
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
1 tablespoon runny honey
500g milk chocolate
10 digestive biscuits, in a freezer bag, bashed with rolling pin into small bits (or you can do it in a food processor if you are felling lazy or not angry enough to hit something!)
handful of marshmallows

Optional extras
Amaretti biscuits (based up in same way as digestives – do not add if anyone eating it is allergic to nuts!)
Glace cherries
add to your own taste)


In a saucepan, melt butter, golden syrup and chocolate in saucepan over low heat. once melted, turn off heat and add digestives and marshmallows. Mix well and carefully as yo do not want bits flying over the kitchen. Add any other optional ingredient if wanted as well. Put mix into small baking tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with icing sugar and put in fridge for a few hours or overnight. Chop up into small squares with sharp knife. Make sure they are small because it can be quite sweet and it is full of calories. Eat and enjoy!

My next post will be on GIS. Simple stuff that you may not know how to do with the GIS. I hope you all have a great week. I am looking to the weekend, as its another F1 GP in Malaysia and the BTCC starts at Brands Hatch. I can’t wait!

Happy Cooking!

    Excellent recipe Jo! Went down very well with the children at nursery and Luke was able to help me make it due to the minimal cooking involved – he particularly enjoyed bashing the biscuits!
