Ingredients

  • 200 g Rich Tea biscuits
  • 100 g mini marshmallows
  • 100 g glaće cherries
  • 100 g sweet and salted popcorn plus 2 handfuls
  • 100 g Cadbury Bournville dark chocolate
  • 100 g Cadbury dairy milk chocolate
  • 135 g unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • sprinkles optional

Instructions

  • Begin by lining a 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper. 
  • Bash up the rich tea biscuits, you can do this by adding them to a zip lock bag and using a rolling pin. Or you can put them into a bowl a few at a time and bash them up with a wooden spoon. You're looking for a combination of crumbs and larger pieces of biscuit. 
  • Add the crushed biscuits, marshmallows, glaće cherries, and popcorn into a large mixing bowl and give it all a good mix up. 
  • Cut the dark and milk chocolate into small pieces and put them in a saucepan with the butter and golden syrup. Melt together over a very low heat.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the melted chocolate in batches, mixing to coat everything really well.
  • Put a layer of popcorn into the baking tin then add the rocky road mixture on top, pressing down firmly with a spoon.
  • Press a few sprinkles on top and another handful of popcorn.
  • Put the popcorn rocky road into the fridge for a couple of hours. Once set, cut into squares and enjoy!

Notes

  • You can use any type of popcorn you like, salted caramel, toffee coated or plain air-popped will work just as well. 
  • Remember to heat the chocolate, butter and syrup on a very low heat or it will seize. If this happens, remove from the heat and beat in a teaspoon of boiling water until it looks smooth. 
  • Popcorn Rocky Road will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for at least a week but it doesn't freeze well. 
  • Popcorn Rocky Road tastes better eaten at room temperature.
