Here's one very simple sweets recipe that's very much welcome all year round especially during the holidays.

Some versions of rocky road involves biscuits both in chunks and crumbs. We prefer this version adapted from 101 Cakes & Bakes by BBC GoodFood magazine where no biscuits mar the beauty and deliciousness of chocolates, nuts, marshmallows plus our preferred Maltesers.
500 g milk or dark chocolate - broken into pieces
10 marshmallows - cut into small pieces*
85 g pecans, walnuts, or almonds (or combination) - roughly chopped
200 g Maltesers (optional)
- Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Cool a little.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients, mix well.
- Pour mixture into an 8-inch (20 cm) square baking pan lined with baking paper.
Leave to set for around 2 hours.
- Remove from baking pan and cut into 1-inch squares with a knife dipped in hot water and wiped.
