My three kids love Shreddies, or should I say Malted Wheaties, the supermarket own brand version. They get through around three boxes per week and eat them for breakfast as well as an after school snack. I tip the cereal into plastic containers otherwise we end up with loads of half empty boxes in the pantry, but after a couple of weeks there's always lots of crumbs at the bottom which nobody wants to eat.
As I don't like to see food go to waste I decided to put the crumbs to good use, and make some Rocky Road, with some vegetarian marshmallows that I had recently been sent.
Malted Rocky Road Slices
450g Milk chocolate (or Chocolate cake covering as it's cheaper & sets quicker)
175g crushed Malted Wheaties (Shreddies)
- Line an 8" square tin with baking paper
- Melt 300g of the chocolate on short bursts in the microwave
- Stir in the Malted Wheaties and marshmallows
- Tip into the tin and press down
- Refrigerate until set
- Melt the remaining chocolate and spread over the rocky road & place back in the fridge until set
- Cut into bars & enjoy!
The kids absolutely loved these, even more than regular rocky road made with biscuits as they weren't as sweet (that surprised me coming from children!)
These marshmallows by Freedom Mallows are completely vegetarian, and instead of using gelatin they use biogum as a binding agent. I was interested to see what my children thought of them and whether they thought they differed from regular marshmallows - the verdict was that they tasted just as good, if not better, than regular marshmallows.
I was sent the Freedom Mallows free of charge
