Rocky Road

Rating 4-0 out of 5 - Most cooks definitely will make this recipe again

Recipe by  

Rocky Road seems to be a 'modern' name given to a home make crunchy chocolate "cake" that my mother used to make when we were kids. In her version, she used only rich tea biscuits but I must admit, the Maltesers and marshmallow give it an extra dimension. Either way, it's sweet, full of calories and darn good!

Currently displaying quantities in US Imperial Measurements
4 oz
12 oz
dark chocolate (60%-70% cocoa is good)
3 tablespoons
golden syrup
6 oz
plain biscuits (like rich tea biscuits)
4 oz
pink marshmallows
4 oz
Maltesers or Crunchie


How to Cook Rocky Road

  1. Roughly chop the butter and break the chocolate into squares. Gently melt the butter, chocolate and syrup in a heavy based saucepan, stirring to ensure everything is well mixed. Scoop out 2-3 tablespoons of this melted mixture and put aside on a warm saucer or small dish.
  2. Place the biscuits and Maltesers (or Crunchie) into a freezer bag and bash them with a rolling pin. You are looking for both crumbs and pieces of cookies. Fold theses broken biscuit pieces and crumbs into the melted chocolate mixture. Cut the marshmallow into small pieces and stir into the mixture too.
  3. Pour the mixture into a 9" (23cm) square foil tray or cake tin and flatten with a spatula. Pour over the reserved melted chocolate mixture and either smooth the top or create patterns in it with the back of a fork..
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (overnight is better). Cut into squares to serve.

If you can get hold of mini-marshmallows (like the ones you add to hot chocolate drinks) it will save you cutting the marshmallows into smaller pieces.

I lost my Rocky Road Candy recipe. This one was delicious and sooooo easy! I added crushed digestives though to make it more like my original rocky road recipe. I've made it twice now. Very tasty!

This recipe was fantastic. Everyone who tried it had said it was great. It is such a quick and easy recipe. The only thing I would do different next time is to add less marshmallows and more maltesers -but that's just a personal thing
