Delicious post-Easter rocky road

This clever rocky road is an Easter favourite and the perfect way to use up any leftover chocolate eggs. Not only does it taste a treat, it looks really spectacular, too, with speckles of nuts, marshmallows and desiccated coconut mixed through.

The recipe calls for assorted Easter eggs, so you can use whatever leftover eggs you happen to have on hand — just remember to remove the wrapping first!

Once the rocky road has set in the fridge, cut into squares and store in an airtight container.

Bonus tip: This rocky road makes a great gift, too! Just wrap a few squares in cellophane and tie the top with a pretty ribbon.
