Hello all, its Sophie again
Despite enjoying my summer of working so far, and coming home falling asleep before tucking into the latest Netflix hit, I'm starting to get bored and miss cake. Confession time: I'm the only baking student who can't bake at all, I just eat and take photos. So I had to think of something fail-proof so that I didn't have to explain to my flatmates why the house was on fire when they came back. So Rocky Road it was!! This isn't from our cookbook, so I'll leave the link for it below.
So I bought over-priced ingredients from the co-op because I'm too lazy to go to a shop that's not in walking distance of my work. Before I ended up in another shop anyway, because I didn't have a tray. When I came home, though, I discovered that we already had some of that stuff ... oops.
So I borrowed some scales from the flatmates, they were out any way. Measured out the biscuits before smashing them with a spoon (I don't know why a spoon). I put them in one freezer bag, soon realising that I'd smashed a hole in the bag with the spoon so I wrapped it in a couple of extra bags which worked.
Next I weighed out the butter, I didn't weigh the chocolate because I only bought enough to make the rocky road. Otherwise I'd have eaten the rest. Next a couple (ok 3 or 4) spoonful's of golden syrup and all in a pan to get melted.

I then emptied all the ingredients into the tray, which had been lined with greaseproof paper that I found in a drawer, spread evenly and put into the fridge to set for 2 hours while I fell asleep on the couch. After being woken up by the sound of my flatmate's bike, I discovered that the rocky road was perfectly set. Phew, baking takes it out of me.
