IF I’m going to get everything out and bake, I love making a few different tray bakes or cakes that can be stored away in the freezer for whenever you fancy something sweet, or if you’ve got friends over for a cuppa and a bit of a catch-up.
This week we have Millionaire’s Shortbread and Mars Bar Rocky Road – both delicious and amazingly easy.

But ensure you store your batch-baking in airtight containers. If the tub is not sealed well, you could spoil your treats with freezer burn. Happy baking.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Setting time: 2 hours
200g dark chocolate
3tbsp golden syrup
285g shortbread biscuits
90g mini marshmallows
3 regular Mars Bars
METHOD: Line and then grease a 20cm square tin with some greaseproof paper.
Add the butter, chocolate and golden syrup to a pan and melt on a low heat.
Meanwhile, bash the shortbread biscuits in a large freezer bag until you have some crumbly bits and some slightly larger pieces of biscuit.
Once the chocolate and butter have melted, remove from the heat and wait for about 5 minutes before then adding in the crushed biscuits, marshmallows and chopped Mars Bars.
Mix well and then pour into the prepared tin. Place in the fridge and leave to set for 2 hours.
Ready to freeze: Once the tray bake is set, take it out of the fridge and cut into slices. Pop it in a freezer bag then store in freezer.
Ready to eat: Remove slices from the freezer when you fancy something sweet. Allow them to defrost for around 30 minutes at room temperature before you tuck in.
