I am generally not a lazy person but at the last minute when someone asks you to whip up something for dessert and you just don’t have the time to make something utterly fabulous like you normally would, it’s OK to cheat and make something easy.
The past week I’d been having serious cravings for Tim Tams (for all you non-Aussie readers they are pretty much our national biscuit because they are just so damn good). After being asked to whip up a dessert for my brother’s farewell dinner (who is off to London to work for a year!) I started searching for easy tim tam recipes. Eventually I was lead to this recipe here, which was called a chocolate slice. It looked easy enough so I decided that’s what I’d make.
You may notice that I’ve now called it Tim Tam Rocky Road and that’s purely because my “slice” needed some alterations and somehow turned into a faux-rocky road. Potato potato, you know? It’s seriously foodgasmic either way.
500g dark chocolate
200g white marshmallows
475g Turkish delight (6 x 55g bars)
2 x 250g Tim Tams
300mL thickened cream
1. Melt chocolate in a saucepan over medium heat.
2. Roughly chop the marshmallows, Turkish delights and tim tams.
3. Add the chopped ingredients and the cream into the melted chocolate and stir well.
4. Spoon the mixture in a flat tray and allow to set in the fridge for a few hours.
How can chocolate, tim tams, marshmallows and turkish delight mixed together ever go wrong? This rocky road is crunchy and chewy and highly decadent. You probably won’t be able to stop eating it and will end up in a sugar coma but you’ll definitely have fun in the process.
What do you put in your home-made rocky road?
