Made with love! These grown-up rocky roads make an ideal home-made gift. They are easy to make, pretty and delicious! They are made with the usual chocolate and marshmallows but have extra special ingredients including amaretti biscuits, pistachios, stem ginger and dried morello cherries. You can find this recipe and many more edible gift ideas, in the December issue of the Sainsbury’s magazine.

Grown-up rocky road

Makes 25 small squares

Prep 15 mins

Total time 20 mins, plus chilling

1. Grease and line a 20cm square tin with baking paper. Break up the spiced orange, dark and milk chocolates into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl with the butter and syrup. Sit the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water and heat gently until melted. Remove from the heat and stir to combine.

2. Put the biscuits into a food bag, seal and break into pieces with a rolling pin. Roughly chop the pistachios. Add three quarters of the crushed biscuits, the pistachios, cherries, marshmallows, and all the ginger to the chocolate and mix well to coat.

3 Spoon into the prepared tin, scatter over the remaining biscuits, cherries, pistachios and marshmallows, and press. Chill for 1-2 hours, or until firm.

Lift out of the tin and cut in squares.
