Chocolate in the base, chocolate in the filling and chocolate on top - what's not to love? This amazing rocky road cheesecake recipe is very quick to make - only 35 minutes excluding chilling time - and it's incredibly easy as well so you don't need to be an expert in the kitchen. You’ll need chocolate chip cookies, miniature pink marshmallows and lots of chocolate, as well as the other usual ingredients you need to make cheesecake. This no-bake chocolate rocky road cheesecake is perfect if you've got lots of people round for a party or gathering, feeding up to 8 people. Because you can prepare this cheesecake quite ahead of serving it, this recipe is great if you want to have something ready in the fridge for when guests arrive, leaving you with a lot of extra time to get ready or just be a bit more relaxed. If you're really a hardcore chocolate fan, make this cheesecake extra naughty and serve with a drizzle of cream or chocolate sauce. Trust us, the calories will be worth it!


  • 6 chocolate-covered chocolate biscuit bars (e.g Rocky)
  • 150g chocolate chip cookies
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 7g (4 sheets) leaf gelatin
  • 60ml cold water
  • 500g cream cheese
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 30g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 75g miniature pink marshmallows
  • 75g dried sour cherries
  • 200ml double cream
  • 25g plain chocolate, to decorate

You can swap or add in any of your favourite ingredients to step 6 like nuts, raisins or honeycomb


  1. Either crush the cookies in a blender, or place in a strong polythene bag and beat with a rolling pin to reduce the biscuits to crumbs.
  2. Melt the butter and combine with the cookie crumbs. Press mixture into bottom of 20cm/8 inch spring-form cake tin. Chill in fridge.
  3. In a small saucepan, put the gelatin with the 60ml water and soak for 10 mins to soften then stir over low heat until dissolved. Meanwhile, chop the chocolate biscuit bars into small chunks.
  4. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla.
  5. Gradually add the gelatin mixture, and mix until smooth.
  6. Fold in chopped biscuits, marshmallows and cherries. Lightly whip the cream until softly peaking then fold into the mixture. Spoon evenly over the base then chill until firm.
  7. Melt the chocolate and drizzle over the top.

This is my new fave recipe... it's delicious!!! Also love the idea from Lee about adding chopped chocolate bars. Will try this next time.

I once had this at a restaurant, trouble was they brought a full one and I couldn't finish it


I have now made this cheesecake twice now, the first time i had it with the rocky bars, the marshmellows and raspberry ruffle bars chopped up about the same size as the rocky bars. The second time i made it rather than the above 3 i used a box of celebrations and 2 fingers of fudge, at least 10 people have tried either one or both of them, and at least 2 of them want me to make them for parties :-)


Steps 1 and 2 for the base


I was wondering how do you make the base like the chocolate crust and if you can send me a full instruction please..... thank you so so so much :)
