rocky road

i'm trying to simplify my life, trying not to buy myself 'things' and trying to to buy othe people 'things'. this is all very well and good but what do i make for my little brother when he turns 22? rocky road of course!

lots of chocolate
take lots of chocolate (but not quite this much... half is for me)
i made the mistake of assuming all Green&Black's chocolate was fair trade but isn't, i should have read the packaging instead of assuming...

lollies for rockyroad
mix together mashmallows, red rasberries, cashews and almonds

rockyroad mixing bowl
melt the chocolate and combine with the nuts and lollies, while trying not to think about the sugar...

rockyroad ready to cool
then spread out the mixture, put it in the fridge and wait for it to set

rocky road
cut it up into peices the next day and you end up with a huge bowl of rocky road, too easy! hopefully my brother takes his time eating it all...

there are lots more people taking a photo a day in august at The Byron Life.
these are my photos from thursday and friday ... i'm all caught up again!
