Another delicious take on the rocky roads – a white rocky road and a lesson to learn..!
Alright, I know it is a stupid thing to ask .. but how many of you watched ShahRukh Khan’s movie RA-One or how many of you have kids who go G-ONE whole day long?? Most of you right? Yeah, I have one too. And Ben 10 just lost his SUPERHERO mantle to G-ONE.
After weeks of begging, promises and exams we finally took the kids for the movie. The movie was good, can be enjoyed by video game freaks and is also a reasonably good effort to make a technically adavnced movie. But Irene and Ryan were most confused as to why the movie was named after the bad guy and not the good guy. Then he wanted to know if Shah Rukh Khan was on top of the Bahrain Trade Centre looking at us, or whether he flew his kids to school or whether all circular objects lying around the house is G-ONE’s HART.
These bars presented a beautiful opportunity to make the kids understand the difference between good and evil. The brown rocky roads are RA- One whereas the white rocky roads are G-ONE. One is dark, symbolic of evil while the other is white, symbolic of purity. Similarly there is good and evil in all persons. The HART is responsible for the judgements you take and it is a matter of choice whether you take the correct decision or the wrong one. If you decide to stick to the wrong decision time and again, that means the RA-ONE in you is becoming stronger and goodness is become weaker. There is a choice in every thing, but the choice is not accidental, it is conscious. Think and act.
Thanx to the movie, my kids have gotten the message. My son is very cautious about how he addresses situations because he does not want RA- ONE around him. He prefers to be G-ONE. Goal Achieved..!
These white rocky roads are a take on Kellogg’s recipe here. They make a good snack, a simple dessert or a simple make ahead gift.
WHITE CHOCOLATE ROCKY ROAD BARS
- 300g bar white eating chocolate, chopped coarsely
- 1 cup colorful marshmallows, chopped coarsely
- 1/2 cup dried apricots or turkish delight, chopped coarsely
- Handful dried cranberries, chopped coarsely
- 1/2 cup pistachios
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
- 1 cup Kellogg’s® Rice Bubbles® (I used Chocos Krispies)
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut, extra (optional)
- Grease 19cm deep square cake pan; line base and sides with 2 strips baking paper, extending paper 2cm above sides.
- Stir chocolate with a metal spoon in medium heatproof bowl over saucepan of simmering water until melted. Cool 5 minutes.
- Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl. Stir in chocolate, working quickly; spread mixture into prepared pan. If you are using chocolate sprinkle it over the chocolate.
- Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm before cutting.
- The best part of making rocky roads is that you can experiment with the ingredients and add those ingredients that you like most.
- I prefer to add a lot of dry fruits and nut. This is because these rocky roads are the best way to get my fussy kids to eat some dry fruits and nut, which otherwise they will just not eat.
