Lockdown Rocky Road Recipe

Lockdown Rocky Road Recipe

Are you looking for fun and delicious lockdown recipe activities?

My son Marlsy and I created our own fun rocky road recipe after he was inspired by watching a video on rocky road in his homeschooling lesson today. Luckily some of our pantry staples include nuts, marshmallows and a couple of opened packets of snakes. All I needed was the key ingredient of quality dark chocolate which fortunately we have a local maker in Orange called Origin Chocolate (now available in Harris Farm stores too). Marlsy only likes dark chocolate so we’ve balanced the sweetness by mixing a cup of snakes and marshmallows in with the quality organic 72-75% range of chocolate. This is a recipe you can do in the early morning, lunch break or in the afternoon as it doesn’t take long to set.
