Sticky Rocky Road Brownies

If any of you read my post about learning to make Chapatis in India: you’ll know I’m not a professional chef, but like to have a go. This weekend, inspired by a friend at work’s amazing rolo cake, I had a go at baking some RockyRoad style brownies. However, in true Cooley culinary style, I decided to deviate from the recipe and try something different (note: this is what happens when you go to the supermarket without looking at a cookbook first). It’s success is debatable and I most probably will not be taking it into work as it is distinctly refusing to be labelled as bonafide cake and preferring to sit somewhere between sticky dough and rocky road. Michelin star? No. Fun to make? Yes.

ps. If you guys can figure out where I went wrong and let me know, I can hopefully try again with a better success rate! I’m guessing it was too thick, but there could be a whole series of factors I’m missing here!

Ingredients:

  • 300g Chocolate
  • 175g Butter
  • 4 Eggs
  • 200g Plain Flour
  • 300g Caster Sugar
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Cherries
  • Shortbread bits (technical terminology)
Don't forget an assistant!

5. Whack in whatever takes your fancy / was available in the supermarket, in this case, marshmallows, cherries and shortbready bits.

It’s really that simple! Apart from the fact that I got it a bit wrong… that said, after 24 hours in the fridge they seemed to sort themselves out (ish).

TA DA!
