Let’s Get Festive Rocky Road | Recipe

December 5, 2017

Long standing readers will know that when I got my job, aside from doing something I enjoy, I was looking forward to joining the bake club. It’s just a bit of fun, but I love to get creative for it. Seeing as I was the first December bake, here’s my Festive Rocky Road that went down a treat.

Now normally I’d cheat with Rocky Road as I’d buy everything in. But it’s bake club and the second rule of bake club, is that you bake all or part of your bake. The first is that you talk about bake club to everyone – haha! So for my Festive Rocky Road I baked the biscuits for it. I was initially going to do stars but I decided to go ridiculous and bake trees so I could make a Rocky Road forest!

For the Rocky Road I followed my recipe here. But this time I omitted the sweets as I know some people at work can’t eat them and I used veggie marshmallows as well. I usually buy off amazon as they’re cheaper on there. The biscuits are dead easy, I made in batches and they fill the house with a wonderful Christmas scent (it’s the mixed spice). Now to be honest you could use any biscuit recipe, but I kept to my Christmas one.

Cook Time
10 min
  1. 100g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  2. 100g caster sugar
  3. 1 medium egg
  4. 1 tsp mixed spice
  5. 275g plain flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl. Beat in the egg, a little at a time, until well combined.
  3. Stir in the flour and mixed spice until the mixture comes together as a dough.
  4. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of 1cm/½in.
  5. Using mini Christmas Tree biscuit cutters, cut biscuits out of the dough and carefully place onto the baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes, then put on wire rack to cool.
  1. I had to bake my biscuits in batches, I recommend putting your dough in the fridge in between bakes.
