Cheerio E-Trenders - we can't wait to share this festive dessert idea imported from London!
Who could resist a slice of this show-stopper inspired by Master Patissier, Eric Lanlard (an ET favorite).
The combination of cherries, chocolate, marshmallows, golden sultanes and crunchy biscuit is simply divine!
Simply make one dozen large chocolate chip cookies using your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Prep the following rocky road mixture...
Four ounces of red glace cherries.
Four ounces of mini pink and white marshmallows.
Three ounces of golden sultanes (raisins).
Two cups of chocolate chip cookie crumbs.
Melt seven ounces.of milk chocolate (broken in pieces) in a small crockpot (we used Godiva Chocolate).
After the chocolate is completly melted add 3 1/2 ounces of unsalted butter.
Let's get back to the rocky road topping...
Mix the cookie crumbs, cherries, marshmallows and raisins in a large bowl. Now stir half of the rocky road mixture in the melted chocolate mixture.
Place the rocky road melted chocolate mixture in a seven inch square pan (greased with butter).
Press mixture firmly down in greased pan and allow to set for about ten minutes.
Add the leftover rocky road topping mixture (the other half) to the top of the chocolate mixture that is already in the pan.
ET Tip: Add other toppings to this mixture like pecans or walnuts. You can also add extra marshmallows and cherries to make the topping extra high in the pan.
Now for the finishing touch...
Melt 1/4 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips and drizzle over the top!
Let chill for two hours.
Enjoy this "brilliant" dessert this holiday season E-Trenders!
