My favourite DFS Sofa Food & Hamper Competition

It was exciting times when our DFS corner sofa first arrived three years ago.  We bought it in the sale and it’s wearing well, especially considering the boys jump all over it and the dog kicks off the scatter cushions looking for her toys!


We love our living room it’s our sanctuary, a place to relax and unwind, settle down comfortably and enjoy some decent TV and snacks.  We do have a sweet tooth so our go to snack is usually hubbie’s Rocky Road; hubbie cuts it in huge slabs the perfect size for an indulgent treat teamed up with a pot of tea and I am incredibly happy!

I think homemade is always nicer than shop bought, especially when hubbie does not skimp on the ingredients, lots of Cadbury’s chocolate make it extra delicious.  We have debated trying a new concoction but for now the raisins, marshmallows and cherries work perfectly.  But we might well experiment in the future and exchange the digestives for oreo’s or ditch the raisins and cherries so we can cram in more chocolate, like rolo’s and maltesers.

Rocky Road

1 packet of plain digestives
400g Cadbury’s Chocolate
1 tin of Condensed Milk
Pack of Raisins
Pack of Marshmallows
Tub of Cherries
100g Butter

Melt the butter and chocolate over a low heat
Mix in the condensed milk
With a rolling pin break up the digestive biscuits
Add the remaining ingredients a little at a time
Then spread the mixture on a baking tray and refrigerate for an hour
Cut into slices then return to the fridge for a further hour

  29. Oh we LOVE Sofa snacks! Especially on our movie night :) I normally prepare some volavants filled with chicken pieces in a white sauce (you can either use tinned chicken and white sauce or make your own) I normally make my own it is quick and easy :) I just use the same method as I would for making macaroni (excluding the cheese)
    Volavants are so tasty and you can fill them with anything you like they are quite filling but VERY addictive :)
