Rocky road recipe


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
