A dark chocolate mint ganache with sugar crunch enrobed in Belgian dark chocolate and topped with a stripy white chocolate square
Seaside Rock is part of our Seaside Selection, a range of chocolates taking inspiration from childhood holidays by the coast. Rock has to be one of the defining treats for our coastal towns. I didn’t realise how British it was until I took some into work as a post-holiday present and got very confused looks from the Europeans on my team at the time. It clearly had to be included in our Seaside Selection but proved to the trickiest recipe to get right. I tried including actual chunks of seaside rock, but that just went unpleasantly sticky. So I tried to replicate some of its main characteristics instead. With mint flavouring, some ground-up hard crack sugar for crunch and a brightly coloured stripes pattern on top you get the best parts of the rock experience, without the sticky fingers and bits of chewy rock stuck in your teeth for hours. Winner!
