Mr Becca's work have an annual staff picnic. I remember my dad's work doing this - only he worked in a HUGE company, so there were rides and tents with food and everything! To us children it was heaven, and we looked forward to going on the ski-jump ride each year, as we never went to fair or carnivals or fairgrounds or whatever those places are where they have a lot of rides and rubbish food to eat. The work picnic was our carnival, and we loved it.
Mr Becca's work however, is small. They have a marquee in case it rains, and a barbeque and some tables laid out for folk to sit at. There is a large open grass area, and a playpark just through the trees. Actually, for a kid that's still kind of perfect :)
He asked me to make a couple of traybakes to take along with us, and I was happy to oblige. A kind reader had once emailed me her secret recipe for a Rolo traybake slice and I had bought Rolo's a few months back in preparation, but forgotten about them. Lucky for me, they were still within their use-by date.
The recipe needed milk chocolate, but I felt it would be a bit sickly, so added in a third dark chocolate. Don't they look lovely melting up together? Psst, Mr Becca didn't seem to notice there was any dark chocolate involved, so let's not burst his bubble, ok? ;)
