I love Rocky Road. I’m still not entirely sure it isn’t just Tiffin, but whatever it is, it’s fantastic! It’s just a combination of amazing ingredients all thrown together and topped with chocolate, and you don’t even need to cook it! What could possibly be better? Well, at this time of year, adding some yummy Easter treats to create Crème Egg Rocky Road or Mini Egg Rocky Road maybe a tiny tiny bit better.
I love Easter baking. There are just so many cool things that you can create using amazing treats that are absolutely everywhere. I’m not religious, so Easter is very much just an excuse to eat chocolate and bake things like Crème Egg Rocky Road. Much like valentine’s day is an excuse to bake things with raspberries.
When I first tried make Crème Egg Rocky Road, all the eggs melted and went a little odd. So, now I freeze them for an hour or so first. This helps them to hold their shape, so you get a big chunk of crème egg goodness as you bite in, and the ones on the top just look a little prettier! I use packs of mini Crème Eggs, which only have 8 in (I know!!!), so I tend to get two packs, so that I’ve got plenty to fill and go on the top. Freezing them also means it’s really easy to chop them down the middle with just a little pressure along the join in the chocolate.
I also added more chocolate to the top than I’ve done before. It gives the crème eggs some depth to sink into, and just adds more. Extra chocolate is never a bad thing, right?
I’ve got to say I think Crème Egg Rocky Road might be my favourite Easter bake. Even though crème eggs aren’t what they used to be!! What’s yours?
