Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Humbug

I must confess, I’m not really bothered by Halloween. It means we’re a step closer to Christmas, but that’s where my enthusiasm for it ends if I’m honest. When I was a kid, my parents were of the “It’s an American holiday, you’re not begging for sweets” mindset. Which I don’t think bothered me too much. Then, when Michael was young, he was frankly terrified of the whole thing, so it kinda passed us by.

We do the odd craft or bit of baking because it’s nice to have something different, especially when it’s rainy and horrible and you want to stay wrapped up indoors. And I make sure we’ve got some sweets in, in case any trick or treaters come calling, which they generally don’t, so we eat them all. But, my kids have never asked to get dressed up and go out themselves.

Halloween Rocky Road is a great way to use up all those lovely treats!

Food!

I do, however, as you may have noticed, like food. So, when this time of year comes around, I enjoy finding ways to use Halloween sweets in baking, and this year I’m having a go with some pumpkin recipes, after making a lovely pumpkin pie last year. I’m especially looking forward to a creamy pumpkin and sweet potato soup.

Rocky Road is always a favourite in our house. I love the different textures and flavours all thrown together under a chocolate top. And, even more, I love that you can throw anything into it. When it comes to basic Rocky Road, I like biscuit, cherries, and marshmallows topped with chocolate.

Halloween Rocky Road is a fantastic way to either use up leftover Halloween sweets that you’ve got. Or, to make just to get you in the mood. You could put anything into it. I went for gummy eyeballs, which look yuck but taste fabulous. They’re squishy and kinda fruity and sticky and a bit creamy and a bit gummy. That’s the best way I can describe them. They’re from Asda. I highly recommend something gummy in your Halloween Rocky Road, even if it’s not an eyeball. A few in the mixture and some on top I found worked well. I then added some Halloween sprinkles, which are little orange and black pumpkins and bats. Just because they looked cool.
