A cake made to look like a face

Rocky Road Treats {Recipe}

January 16, 2015

When I was younger my Mam and my Granny always had a sweet treat or two in the pantry ready for whenever anyone called by to see them. Whilst they preferred to have Rice Crispie Cake waiting to treat guests I prefer to have some Rocky Road Treats in the cake tin just in case – plus is a lovely after school treat.

So if you are looking for the perfect chocolate treat to share with guests, for the school bake sale or a tea time sweet treat then why not try these easy to make Rocky Road Treats.
