    Martha Collison's Route 66 rocky road

    Having been lucky enough to travel to the US a few times, it is only right to include some of my favourite American flavours – peanuts, popcorn, marshmallows and cranberries – in my version of rocky road. Marshmallows, syrup and chocolate make a soft, sweet base, cut with the welcome sharpness of cranberries and peanuts.

    Makes: 12 bars


    100g butter
    100g peanut butter 200g dark chocolate, chopped
    100g milk chocolate, chopped
    2 tbsp golden syrup
    50g peanuts                   
    50g dried cranberries
    50g mini marshmallows
    50g toffee popcorn
    You will also need a  20 x 30cm baking tin.


    1. Line a 20 x 30cm tin with baking parchment.

    2. In a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, melt the butter, peanut butter and both chocolates together until they are smooth. Stir in the golden syrup.

    3. Roughly chop the peanuts and mix them with the cranberries, mini marshmallows and popcorn. Add these dry ingredients to the chocolate and mix to combine. Make sure all the popcorn is well coated in chocolate or the rocky road won’t stick together.

    4. Press the mixture into the tin using the back of a spatula or wooden spoon, then chill in the fridge for at least two hours to set.

    5. Use a sharp knife to slice it into 12 bars. To keep it as solid as possible, store in the fridge until ready to eat. It will keep for up to two weeks.
