On a rocky path...

It's week 5 and I've just hit the wall. A big, oppressive, 'I'm-not-going-to-let-you-do-any-work' kind of wall. It's quite imposing to be honest, and as much as I'd love to oblige I'm afraid that's just not possible at the moment. So, old brickface, I'd quite like you to let me past now. Okaythanks.

I'm writing this post for all the students out there who I know are suffering that same sinking feeling as we're being swamped with work. Fear not. Help is at hand... and as you probably know by now my helpful offerings are usually one of two things. 1) Completely irrelevant and useless 2) Baked goods. Thankfully the latter is true today...well, kinda.

This is a super quick no-bake recipe for rocky road. It's cheap, it's cheerful, it's chocolate. What more can I say?

Oh yeah. OM.

100g Dark Chocolate
100g Milk Chocolate
70g Unsalted butter
60g raisins/sultanas
60g marshmallows
40g rich tea biscuits, crushed.

Break both types of chocolate into squares and pop into a bowl along with the butter. Place the bowl over a saucepan of recently boiled water [no need to keep it over the gas] and melt gently until smooth and glossy. Once melted remove from the heat and stir in the extra bits.

Line a small tin/plastic food box with Clingfilm and pour in the chocolatey mixture. Whoops, did I leave some in the bowl? Will have to figure a way of getting rid of it some how...

Stick it in the fridge once it's reached room temp for at least two hours [I know, I was crying 30 minutes in] and once hardened simply remove, slice and gobble.

So there's your stress relieving, endorphin releasing, brick-wall bashing rocky road.


Loooove chocolate.

I'm definitely feeling the final, fourth year uni wall... exams, teaching placement, assignments, QTS skills tests, fundraising... It's getting a bit much!

But thankfully I now have a yummy and simple recipe for chocolate treats that will help ease me into the madness of the coming month! :D

I hope you start to feel more chilled out about things soon and get past that brick wall x

Abbie- that sounds horrific!! But yes, hopefully a lil bit of chocolatey goodness can work its magic.

Laura- thanks hun, I'm sure I'll scale it somehow :P

PinkBow- someone has only to mention the word chocolate and I'm hungry!!
