Easter Egg Rocky Road

This recipe is inspired by a photo from the BBC Good Food  website.  I have taken the idea and adapted the Nigella Lawson Christmas Rocky Road recipe for Easter.

 Easter and Chocolate

I am reposting this as my final suggestion for Easter, just in case there is not enough chocolate in your life! (Unless I get my act together and make those hot cross buns)

After a few days in Berlin, and now Scotland where feasting is de rigour, personally I am looking forward to a little fasting and moderation next week. Just a few more days!

Sourcing Ingredients

This is a no bake recipe which only involves melting chocolate, butter and Lyle’s Golden Syrup.  At a pinch you could substitute light corn syrup for the golden syrup, but in Darien, you can buy Lyle’s at Wholefoods and Palmers.

In Denmark  I have tried the light syrup. It works as it is made from sugar cane but still does not exactly replicate Golden syrup. The online store Abigail.dk and possibly Meny in Østerbro have Lyle’s.

In Denmark I have had no luck so far in finding mini marshmallows, but ground amaretti cookies, which this recipe calls for, can be bought in almost every store. If you cannot track amaretti cookies down a sweet digestive or rich tea ‘biscuit’ or cookie would be perfectly acceptable.

My chocolate as ever comes from Trader Joes, the large Belgium Bars are brilliant for this sort of thing. The UK has the ever brilliant Cadbury’s and in Denmark I have started using Marabou. My biggest problem with any chocolate bar is keeping them in the house long enough to cook with them, as they also seem be a rather good late night snack.

For ease I have added a cup of both brazil nuts and mini marshmallows and a full bag of mini eggs, please do not be constrained by these amounts and proportions.

Wherever you are I wish you a very Happy Easter!
