This is sweet galore! I was going to make some bog standard cornflake cakes but then I thought, ‘how shall I spice them up a bit?’ So I decided to mix two different traybakes and make a rocky road cornflake cake. Being the incredibly sharing person I am, I have written up the method I created when making these.
- 100g of cornflakes
- 100g of digestive biscuits
- 55g of mini marshmallows
- 360g of milk chocolate
- 12 small chocolate egg – I used Terry’s Chocolate Orange White Chocolate Eggs for decoration.
1.Start by lining a square tin (mine is 20cm x 4.5cm) with greaseproof paper.
2.Then fill just under a quarter of the pan with cool water. Make sure that the water in the pan and the bottom of the mixing bowl (that will contain the chocolate) are not touching.
3.Snap the 360g of chocolate into small pieces and place them into the bowl.
4.Set the temperature to a medium heat and, with the bowl on top of the pan, occasionally stir the chocolate until it has fully melted.
5.Then take the bowl off of the heat and put to the side to cool. Do not forget to turn the stove off.
6.While the chocolate is cooling, measure out the cornflakes, marshmallows and biscuits.
7.Smash the biscuits into small pieces, around the same size of the cornflakes, with the round end of a rolling pin.
8.Add those ingredients to the chocolate and stir until everything is smothered.
9.Pour the mixture into the lined tin and put your chosen decorations on top, in any arrangement you prefer.
10.Then put it in the fridge to cool for at least an hour and a half.
