I know we are not yet in the month of December but let's kick start the festive season with some Christmas Rocky Roads. I first saw these Christmas Rocky Roads after watching an episode of Nigella Kitchen, and was lured in with all the luscious ingredients. These Rocky Roads also appear in Nigella's Feasts and are the perfect chocolate goodies for the festive season. Amaretti biscuits, glace cherries and Brazil nuts are used to make these more festive. I decided to stick to my trusty digestive biscuits but added the glace cherries and Brazil nuts and was pleasantly surprised with the results. The Christmas Rocky Roads are nutty, yet chewy and very chocolatey.
Here is how my Rocky Roads turned out:

I first started by weighing the chocolate, butter and golden syrup and then heated on a pan until melted.

I then bashed the biscuits and Brazil nuts then in cooperated this into the chocolate mixture.

Once in cooperated I placed in a baking tin and left to set in the fridge for 3 hours.

After 3 hours the mixture was set and dusted icing sugar over the Rocky Road.
