Like many, I have been in quarantine (due to international travel) for 15 days and today is the day I can finally leave my humble little apartment! I have definitely missed the little things I had taken for granted like my morning walk, the beach & browsing grocery stores.
The past 14 days have gone incredibly quickly, considering I have achieved sweet f*ck all. I have watched Netflix (if you want a real tear-jerker I recommend 'miracle in cell no. 7' or for a good laugh 'Coffee and Kareem'), I made a blouse I will no doubt hang in my closet and forget about for 6+ months until the world returns to "normal", watched (& attempted) a horrendous amount of cringe-worthy TikToks & spent way to much time scrolling Instagram...
Although, I did spend some time digging up some old recipes when I ran out of crackers and then stumbled across my all-time favorites. Rocky Road! This is the most decadent, moorish & healthy treat. Perfect to make and keep in the freezer for the coming months, or to snack on over easter this weekend **drool**. This recipe is easily adaptable to whatever you have in your pantry. Don't panic if you are missing something! I usually have a stash of homemade chocolate in my fridge, however you can use whatever you favorite brand of chocolate is or use our homemade chocolate recipe!
