Tunnock’s Tea Cake Rocky Road

Tunnock’s Tea Cake Rocky Road

75g Butter
300g + 150g Milk Chocolate
3 Tbsp Golden Syrup
200g Digestive Biscuits
12 Tunnock’s Teacakes
50g Mini Marshmallows

Melt the butter, 300g of chocolate and the golden syrup in a heavy-based saucepan.
Put the digestives into a bag and bash them with a rolling pin. You are aiming for a mixture of crumbs and pieces of biscuits.
Cut the Tunnock’s Teacakes in quarters and set half aside.
Fold the bashed biscuits into the melted chocolate mixture in the saucepan, then add the mini marshmallows and finally half of the chopped up Teacakes.
Tip into a greased/lined traybake tin (aprox 34cm x 20 cm) and flatten as best you can with a spatula.
Nestle the remaining quarters of Teacakes into the mixture.
Melt the 150g of chocolate in a microwave or over a bain marie and pour it over the top of the Rocky Road avoiding the Teacake quarters.
Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours or overnight.
Cut into squares and enjoy with a cuppa.

Dr Pepper Chicken Wings


Dr Pepper Chicken Wings




  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • cut into nugget sized pieces
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 Tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 can Dr. pepper
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 Tsp. Tabasco sauce
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • Oil for frying

Combine the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Toss the chicken in the flour mixture, coating completely. Put the coated chicken in the fridge for at least 1 hour. This will help the coating adhere to the chicken during frying.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring the can of Dr. Pepper to a boil, reduce heat and simmer briskly until reduced to about 1/8th the amount. Add the brown sugar, ketchup, Tabasco and butter and simmer until a nice thick sauce. Set aside.

Heat the oil to 350 degrees. Remove the chicken from the fridge and fry in the oil until golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. when all chicken is cooked, toss in the sauce until completely coated.

Serve and enjoy.
