Rocky Road Slices with a Twist? These soft, indulgent slices will totally satisfy your sweet tooth!
Nugget is finally walking!! It feels like I’ve been waiting ages for him to take his first steps, then it happened so suddenly. He just decided today was the day and he was off. He’s now totally unstoppable, but at least I’ll be burning plenty of calories chasing him and Bam Bam around!
So, what better excuse to indulge in this chocolatey goodness?! The only problem I have is that I just can’t stop eating it! But hey, it’s nearly Christmas, right? I hear that calories don’t count at Christmas…. Should that be untrue, the extra pounds will keep me warm over winter!
Now, rocky road is simply great as it is but these have an extra depth using soft amaretti biscuits in the mix. It’s also gives them a crumbly soft texture which will just melt in your mouth.
These rocky road slices are great for sharing too. Not only because your friends will totally love it but because you can even out the balance if everyone is indulging. Pounds gained together are pounds you won’t notice! Enjoy!
