Let's do a chocolate post, you know, for a change. Oh wait, 90% of my blog posts involve chocolate in some form of another! What can I say, I eat chocolate every.single.day. My latest chocolate treat was a deliciously chunky Rocky Road Bark!
Yummy! This chocolate bark is made with only three ingredients: chocolate, marshmallows, and walnuts. I made mine with a mix of dark and semi-sweet chocolate. You can't see the marshmallows from the top, but if I show you a side-shot you can see them in all their chewy glory...
The recipe, via Brown Eyed Baker, calls for mini marshmallows, but the only vegan marshmallows I could find at Whole Foods were the regular sized Dandies. That's OK, I thought, I'll just chop them into smaller pieces. Pffft. No big deal. I see that some of you are already face-palming at my ignorance - one does not simply chop marshmallows into smaller pieces. I nearly lost the will to live while I was trying to cut the sticky things that were like fluffy, delicious liquid nails glued to my knife. Eventually I decided to freeze them for a while before I continued chopping. It was a little easier to chop them frozen. A little.
Is this too Christmassy too early? Sorry! Quick, look at this Autumnal picture and cleanse your eyes of the premature winter-holidays display! Can you spot Lady Goldfinch there? We have been invaded by a large flock of these tiny little birdies and I've gone photo-crazy on them. More goldfinch pictures coming soon! Watch this space!
