'Tis the season for snacking, and there is no better way than with rocky road fudge full of seasonal spices.
Gingerbread Spice Mix:
1 tbsp + 1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp allspice
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 ½ tsp nutmeg
1 ½ tsp ground cloves
500g milk chocolate
300g dark chocolate
250g unsalted butter
8 tbsp golden syrup
2 tsp gingerbread spice mix (see above)
150g gingerbread men, broken into pieces
300g mini marshmallows
gingerbread men icing toppers
First, make the gingerbread spice mix by combining all spices in a bowl. Set aside.
Place the milk and dark chocolate, butter, golden syrup and 2 tsp gingerbread spice mix in a pot over medium-low heat. Stir consistently until completely melted.
Remove from the heat, allow the mixer to cool slightly and add the gingerbread man pieces and marshmallows and mix until just combined.
Lightly grease 2 square aluminum containers in cooking spray and pour the mixture into both containers. Decorate with some festive sprinkles and gingerbread men icing toppers. Place these in the fridge (or freezer, if you’re in a rush) until set.
Slice the rocky road into bite-sized squares, and enjoy!
