Recipe ~ Sweet Shop Rocky Road!

RR5

So this is possibly the easiest recipe ever but oh so delicious! And the best bit you can change / add to / take away the different elements as you please…

LMUBThis is firmly based on the recipe for Rocky Road by the wonderful Like Mam Used to Bake in her book (go buy it, the best baking book I have, my go to resource for all things bakey!)

This version  is amended & tweaked a bit and definitely a bit ‘messier’ in its creation!

This will make about 16 squares of Rocky Road deliciousness…

  • 450g Milk Chocolate
  • 1 x Rolos
  • 2 x Cadbury’s Caramel
  • 2 Crunchies
  • 2 x Maltesers
  • Handful of Marshmallows

Melt the chocolate as you would normally either in the microwave or in a bowl over a pot of hot water. This time, I used the microwave for ease and convenience… right at the end just before the chocolate was fully melted, I added one of the caramel bars to the melted chocolate and gave it another 15 seconds or so in the microwave. So the chocolate has a little caramelly taste.

In a dish, lined with greaseproof or parchment paper, throw in the maltesers and rolos. Put the Crunchies in a bag, expel the air, and bash them up! Add the Crunchie pieces to the dish too. Chop the marshmallows in half (or use mini marshmallows!) and add to the dish. Mix everything around so its reasonably combined and its not all one sweet type in one corner. Pour over the melted chocolate, ensure the chocolate reaches all the corners of the dish.

With the remaining Caramel bar, chop it into smaller pieces, and add to the chocolate rocky road mix!

Allow to set, slice into squares, and enjoy – I love the bumpy uneven look of this rocky road – but you could spend more time making it more ‘even’ – either way its so good!

  1. This looks amazing. It would be really good with some revels, so you get rocky road revel roulette – who gets the slice with the coffee one 🙂 I love the texture too.

    1. Oooh I like the idea of Revels too! Really you can experiment with any sweets & chocolates.. jelly tots I was thinking could be quite nice too!
