Recipe: Rocky Roads

I’ve been experimenting with recipes for rocky roads for years now and everyone I feed them to loves them. I honestly think my rocky roads are the only reason I’ve had a marriage proposal. If you don’t know, rocky roads are like chocolate bars full of yummy things, usually some kind of biscuit with marshmallow, nuts or fruit. They are very naughty but very delicious.

Makes 16 bars

What you need:

  • 450g milk chocolate
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 200g digestive biscuits
  • 2 x 37g packets of Maltesers
  • 50g mini marshmallows

What you do:

  1. Break the chocolate into pieces and throw it into a large saucepan along with the golden syrup and butter. Put the pan on a low heat and leave the mixture to melt, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, put the biscuits and Maltesers into a sandwich bag or similar and use a blunt, heavy object (meat mallet, rolling pin, frying pan, boxing glove as you pretend the biscuits are your bosses head…) to smash them into pieces. You want a mixture of crumbs and chunks.
  3. Once the chocolate mixture is melted and combined, remove it from the heat and stir in the biscuits and Maltesers as well as the mini marshmallows. Make sure you combine the ingredients thoroughly.
  4. Tip the lot into a suitable sized tin that has been lined with foil and press down firmly with a spatula. Leave the mixture in the fridge to set for at least a few hours before cutting into bars and distributing to anyone who you need to get on the good side of. Keep any leftovers (pah!) in the fridge and eat them cold for the best experience.


I dusted these with cocoa powder to make them more photogenic. There’s really no need, just eat them and avoid the faff.

  1. Never heard of rocky roads before (but then I haven’t had flapjacks either, so I guess I’ve just lived behind the moon my whole life). I recently saw mini marshmallows in the supermarket (rare in Europe) so I guess I don’t have a reason to give these a try πŸ™‚
