Did I do this right? It's tasty but it seems a little flat to be called 'bars'; and I even put it in a smaller pan than the recipe called for. I'd double the recipe if I was going to make this again.-31 Mar 2004

I made this recipe because we had the ingredients on hand and because I love chocolate! This recipe was even a little much for me. Perhaps incorporating condensed milk would make it more moist. I would also suggest using half a cup of chocolate chips instead of a full cup.-20 Jul 2008

F10XK4 A delightful sweet treat, Rocky Road.

Nutrition per portion

For a new take on the picnic-essential, try these Maltesers rocky road bars.

Our recipe for Maltesers rocky road bars takes the classic marshmallow, chocolate and biscuit snack recipe and adds a little something extra. The crunch of the Maltesers pairs perfectly with the soft marshmallows and smooth milk chocolate. As it only takes 15 minutes to create 12 of these bars, they’re ideal for making as a last-minute addition to a picnic or party table. For something different, swap out the milk chocolate in this Maltesers rocky road recipe for white or dark chocolate. Add cranberries for a sharp contrast to the moreish Maltesers.

How to make vegan rocky road

This is a pretty simple recipe but I wanted to write step-by-step instructions for anyone who&rsquos never made a vegan dessert before!

Step 1:

The first step is to measure out your wet ingredients (you&rsquoll melt them all together!).

You&rsquoll need 250g of vegan dark chocolate (

9oz), 120g of vegan butter (1/2 cup) and 3 tablespoons of golden syrup*.

I recommend using semi-sweet dark chocolate for best results, especially if you&rsquore using salty mix-ins such as pretzels. I used Bournville. I&rsquove listed more vegan chocolate options in my UK vegan chocolate guide.

*If you don&rsquot have golden syrup, you can substitute it for agave nectar instead. I wouldn&rsquot recommend using maple syrup in its place though as the flavour is too overpowering for this recipe.

Step 2:

Break up the chocolate and place it in a heatproof bowl with the butter and golden syrup. Gently melt it, mixing often, until there are no lumps of chocolate left.

Set the bowl aside for a few minutes to cool slightly.

Step 3:

In a large bowl, roughly crush 250g of Digestive biscuits (9oz, about 14 biscuits) and 65g of salted pretzels (1 cup).

You want the pieces to be quite chunky with a few smaller crumbs in there. Make sure not to crush them too finely.

Step 4:

Pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the bowl. Add your additional extras. I used 60g of mini vegan marshmallows (1 cup), 20g of sweet and salty popcorn (1 heaped cup) and 35g of vegan white chocolate chunks (1/3 cup).

Mix it all together really well until everything is coated in the chocolate mixture.

Step 5:

Transfer the mixture into a 9 x 13-inch rectangular pan lined with baking paper and spread it out evenly.

Use the back of a wooden spoon or the bottom of a cup to press it tightly into place.

Step 6:

Place it in the fridge for 3 hours until firm.

Remove it from the tin using the baking paper and cut into 12 square pieces.

400g Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, broken into squares


1. Line a 30 x 20cm baking tin with baking parchment.

2. Put the chocolate squares in a large glass bowl and microwave them for 20–30 seconds. Take out the bowl and stir the chocolate, then repeat until it is all melted. Alternatively, place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until the chocolate has melted.

3. Put the digestive biscuits into a sealable plastic bag and bash them with a rolling pin until you have a mixture of different-sized pieces. You want some quite big crunchy pieces – not just crumbs.

4. Stir the crushed biscuits and marshmallows into the melted chocolate until everything is well combined and coated.

5. Transfer the mixture to the lined tin, pushing it into the corners and levelling the top. Push in the Cadbury Mini Eggs, distributing them evenly, and press them down with a spatula or the back of a spoon.

6. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 2–3 hours (or overnight) until it is set. Cut it into 24 squares and store them in an airtight container in the fridge.

How to make turkish delight rocky road:

This recipe is so easy to make, first of all melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave. It takes around 2 minutes but keep checking on it so it doesn’t burn. Once it is melted stir together and let it cool a little bit.

Add the chopped roasted almonds, Turkish Delight and marshmallows to the melted chocolate and stir together. Pour into a lined baking tray and chill in the fridge until set. This takes about an hour.

Once set cut into pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

This recipe is a great one to get the kids involved by stirring it all together and adding ingredients into the bowl. It’s also one of my favourite recipes to make because it’s so tasty licking the bowl and spoon afterwards.

Common questions about this recipe:

How long does it keep for? This rocky road will keep well in airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

What size slice tin do you use? For this recipe I use my 18 x 27 cm slice tin.

Rocky Road is an amazing gift for friends and family so why don’t you try making it for Birthdays, Christmas or Valentines Day.

Let’s break down the ingredients.

First for this Caramilk Rocky Road we need Caramilk Chocolate (obviously.) If you can’t get your hands on Caramilk specifically you can use any other brand of caramelised white chocolate or alternatively, use white chocolate.

Next you need Honeycomb Maltesers (or regular if you prefer), digestive biscuits (graham crackers) and marshmallows (the pink things in my rocky road are marshmallows).

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 27x18cm slice tin and line with baking paper.

2. Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa into a bowl. Stir in caster sugar and coconut. Add butter and egg, mixing well. Spread over the base of the prepared tin.

3. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes and then spread with topping.

4. While the cake is cooling make the topping by placing chocolate and Kremelta in a heatproof bowl. Sit over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir continuously until smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.

5. Add marshmallows, coconut and nuts to the melted chocolate. Mix well. Spread over the warm base. Allow topping to set before cutting into pieces.
