Rocky road is a simple yet delicious treat to knock up for the family. The best thing about rocky road is that it requires no baking so you can easily make it with the kids. All you need to do is melt some chocolate, allow to cool, then pour it over your favourite naughty treats and set - simple! This classic version uses Maltesers, marshmallows and ginger biscuits but you can swap or add pretty much any sweet ingredients you like

These were just soooo yummy and so easy to make, especially good if you are baking with children as they love adding all the bits and pieces. Everyone loved them, will be making them again but this time with digestive biscuits, rather than the gingernuts.

Wendy

Will definitely be trying this recipe. Hope it works minus marshmallows as we are a veggie family and marshmallows are on the No List. (they contain gelatine)

Pollyanna

Dear fellow greedy gits, I would like to highly reccommend this recipe. It is stunningly scrumptious and the texture of the mix between the crunchy biscuits and the soft melt-in- the-gob marshmallows is inspired!! If i were you, i would double the mixtre, keeping half for myself, and sharing the other half between friends, making the perimetre of their thighs double- be sure to add extra fatiness to their half! Overall, i would like to say that this rocky road crunch bar recipe is a GOD-send, could not live without it. things to DIE for Thank-you for letting your eyes read this letter, be sure to enjoy the heavenly taste that it a rocky road bar. Your truly, my good friends P;) x

Megan

The rocky road mix is fabulous, it has a very nice texture to it!

Holly

The best recipie I have ever used! Works well with short bread! If you like the chocolate bits make 1 and 1/2 of the chocolate mixture its yummy!

sue hart

absolutely delicious and easy peasy to make. can highly recommend this recipe. also works well with hob nobs if you are not keen on ginger biscuits

catje

these were so scrummy. extremely naughty but very, very nice.a definate hit nad will eb amde many times.

john

I I did this and use all the right amounts of ingredients apart from chocolate I used more and I dint know if ive messed up with the chocolate but it went bitty and there wasnt enough to bind with other ingredients how is this possible when I used more. I dont know all these baking terms so sorry if I dont make much sense

Hi Radhika, I'll take a look into this for you - it gives me an excuse to make it!

Radhika Maitri

Hi! I did melt it on a double boiler., it tried again after the first time and it split yet again.. I added 1 tbsp of vegetable oil to rectify the splitting but I'm not sure why it split twice!

clarehopping

If you're having problems with the chocolate mixture splitting (usually because the heat underneath the pan is too hot), try melting the chocolate, butter and golden syrup together using a bain marie. Put the ingredients in a glass bowl over a pan of just simmering water, making sure no water leaks in. Stir until melted!

imogen

This is great recipe and simple to follow. I add some raisins and sultanas to mine and a table spoon of rum to the chocolate and butter as itĀ“s melting which gives it a lovely kick and is very festive! I'd say use a good quality chocolate (Lidl do a good 74% one for 79p) and melt on a very low heat to avoid seperation. Hope this helps.

Radhika Maitri

Mine too. It has split! I don't know what went wrong, I followed the recipe! As easy as this may sound, this rocky road recipe needs a bit of work ! I'm not sure it's fool proof ..

LazyCook

This happened to me also. I thought it had split so i threw it away. My partner then tried and it happened again before everything had melted completely. He took it off the heat and carried on regardless. They tasted fine but they did have what looked like white 'fat' bits on the top once they set in the fridge. How do you guys get it to blend without problems? What are we doing wrong?

I am keeping my name anonymous

How much does 'cheap as chips' mean?

cazmicely

I've made these a few times (or let the kids make them & just supervised!) They are really easy & taste great. I like the ginger biscuits, but have also made with digestives and that version proved more popular with everyone. Have made with & without the addition of cherries - prefer them with! Also, we chop up the malteasers a bit. Oh and I've found they take nowhere near 2 hours in the fridge. Ours have always been chilled much sooner :)

Kirsty178

They where amazing but the cost did add up, Also it makes a lot! I could not stop eating them which is bad when your trying to watch your weight

yummytreats51

These were the best rocky roads i have ever had!!! all the family loved them and i have reccomended it to all chocolate lovers i know! instead off ginger biscuits though i used maltesers which all the children liked :D

princess

These are my favourite as with all of the family they like them soooo much! With all those flavours,tastes and textures you can't go wrong!

Bethvickers

about to do these tomorrow see how they go! :) instead of ginger biscuits im using digestive no to keen on ginger! :L

Francesca

Easily the best recipe i've tried! I always heat the ingredients in a bowl over heated water but other than that it works a treat and tastes gorgeous!

emma

made these and they look lovely but neither my son or daughter like the ginger biscuit taste. I thought they were lovely but will try with rich tea biscuits next

Amy

I made these Rocky Road bars a couple of days ago and they went down really well. Everyone loved them. Yummmmmmy. I used rich tea biscuits instead, but now going to try ginger. High recommended, thank you!

ellis and kate

when we were heating our chocolate and butter mixture on the hob, a brown liquid formed. did this happen for anyone else hahaa?

LeahVibster

Joeff they say to add marshmallows! This recipe is lush i love the ginger biscuits

gemma

we added cherries to ours and served them on a girly boozy night in they went down a treat.

carolyn

This was greatly enjoyed by my family and my whole scrapbook class have asked for copies after enjoying some at our end of term party. Lovely recipe and so easy, even for beginners.

Emma

This rocky road is acem try mixing white and choco malteasers and also swap ginger buscuits for digestives, thats the one i like best
