Crunchie Rocky Road Buns

Donal Skehan

Okay, so you've gotten past Rice Krispie buns; well, these Rocky Road Buns are the next step up in deliciousness. Packed with lots of goodies, these little babies will give you that quick hit of sugar you crave. They're easily thrown together in a matter of minutes with ingredients that can be found in the store cupboard. I picked up a very cute pack of 'mini mini marshmallows' to decorate the top of mine. Makes 12 big buns.

You will need

150g digestive biscuits, roughly bashed so you have nice chunks

200g mini marshmallows, or large ones chopped up

4 Crunchie bars, chopped into chunks

250g chocolate (milk or dark)

3 tbsps butter

Method

In a large bowl combine the digestive biscuits, marshmallows and Crunchie bar chunks and set aside.

Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and sit over a pan of simmering water and stir until melted. You can also do this in the microwave -- just keep your eye on it and don't forget to stir halfway through.

You ideally want the chocolate to be glossy and smooth.

Pour the chocolate and butter over the biscuits, marshmallows and Crunchie chunks and, using a wooden spoon, stir until everything is nicely coated.

Place heaped spoonfuls into paper cases and place in the fridge to firm up for about 30 minutes.

You can also turn the mixture out on to a baking tray and spread it evenly, then slice them up into squares when they are set, but the paper cases are far less trouble, with no washing up!
