Super Simple Rocky Road

Rocky Road 1This is easily my simplest recipe to date – and the most naughty – but really delicious.  My favourite thing about Rocky Road is that essentially you can add anything you like, and leave out what you’re not so keen on, this is just my personal favourite combination.  Check out my Recipe Roundup page for previous foodie posts.

What You Need

  • 100g butter
  • 350g plain chocolate (most recipes suggest less than this but I always find I need more to really hold everything together)
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • Shortbread or digestive biscuits, smashed into chunks
  • Mini marshmallows (you can just cut up regular marshmallows of course but have you ever tried to do this?  They are so sticky inside it’s a real pain)
  • 2 Cadbury Crunchies, smashed into chunks
  • 2 bags of Maltesers, smashed into chunks
  • Raisins and/or glacier cherries
  • Unsalted cashews or peanuts (for grown-ups or older kids only)

Rocky Road 3What You Do

  • Line a traybake tin with baking paper or, better yet, buy a disposible tin foil one
  • Heat the chocolate, butter & syryp in a saucepan on a gentle heat until everything is melted
  • Smash or chop all your remaining goodies
  • Combine with the chocolate mixture in a large bowl and pour into the tin
  • Allow to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours before slicing into squares or bars and dusting with icing sugar to serve

Tips & Tags

*Naughty Nibble*

  • Switch to milk or white chocolate if preferable.
  • Try a new theme for your Rocky Road depending on the season – white chocolate and Mini Eggs for Easter or add spooky jelly sweets & drizzle with green icing for Halloween.
  • Are you economising this Christmas?  These make a fab homemade gift when stacked in a clear cellophane bag and decorated with a festive ribbon and tag.
  • Chop up leftovers for a fab ice cream topping!
