{2018 Advent Activities} Dec 14th - Make Rocky Road

Today our advent activity was making rocky road! 

I've used 'My Lovely Little Nest's recipe but just because I like them, I've substituted the strawberries & cream lollies for musk sticks!

You'll need 375g - 400g melts (I used a cheap Coles brand and now I wished I'd splurged and bought a Cadbury chocolate - next time!), a packet of mini mars or snickers bars, a packet of musk sticks, a small packet of marshmallows & 1/4 cup fine desiccated coconut (Mandy at My Lovely Little Nest uses more specific amounts but I'm a chuck everything in kinda girl!) 

Chop everything up as small as you wish, and then melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments or slowly on the stove top. How cute are the Christmas spatula's I picked up from Coles?!

Once the chocolate is melted, chuck it all in and mix quickly together. If you wait too long, the chocolate will harden and the mixture will be too stiff to mix!

Place it all into a slice or square tin lined with baking paper, and put into the freezer or the fridge for about an hour. We sprinkled some Christmas sprinkles on top too. 

Once hard, cut into smaller pieces (whatever size you like!)

Delicious! I was thinking once I'd made it that it would be cool to have red & green showing to really make it Christmassy, so next time I'd add pistachios, strawberries & cream lollies, and red & green m&m's (as well as the coconut & marshmallows). I also love making a whie chocolate version (which you could do with cranberries, macadamias & pistachios! The possibilities really are endless!

Yesterday after I'd already published our advent activity, we went to the library and saw Santa again!
