Rocky Road Crunch Bars – Recipe

After having a massive craving for Marshmallows when doing the weekly food shop only to find that after a few I started to feel quite sick! I was desperately looking for recipes to use them up in! and so this along with the Marshmallow Rice Cakes were my solution.

This is a Nigella Lawson recipe, because if there is one thing I know, Nigella does sweet things really well!
