Rocky Road.

I hate making Rocky Road. 

Melting all the delicious Cadbury's milk chocolate, stirring in salted peanuts, marshmallows, chocolate M+M's, chopped up jelly snakes, white chocolate chunks, Peanut M+M's.... 

All those annoying bits that fall out of the bowl and have to be eaten. All the bowls and spoons that need to have all the chocolate licked off them before going in the dishwasher. I'm such a good mum that I saved my children this awful chore and did it all by myself while they were still in school. 

The final step is probably the worst. Getting a big knife and roughly chopping it into chunks and piling it up in pretty bowls for the teachers. All those irritating uneven bits that you just have to eat so you get the balance right in each bowl. 

It's a hard job but someone's got to do it....
