Posh Rocky Road

Sometimes you just need a super duper chocolate fix....for me thats unfortunately ALOT of the time! I think I've have found the perfect recipe for this. I am a massive fan of Rocky Road. I just love marshmallows and chocolate - amazing combo! I don't enjoy the super market rocky roads - there never seems to be enough marshmallows etc mixed in, so I have been searching for a good recipe.

My Dad has been raving for a while now about how good some Rocky Road is that he's tasted at work. Apparently, his colleague's wife makes it and then sends him into work with it. I have therefore been constantly nagging him to get me the recipe so I can sample it for myself. He's finally emailed me it so I set about making it last weekend for when my Mum and Dad visited and, well it is actually quite amazing. So amazing infact, I have made it again this week and taken it into my work (it lasted about 5 minutes!)and will probably make it again next week!

The recipe is so simple, no baking required but involves lots and lots of chocolate, maltesers, snickers bars, mars bars, marshmallows, cherries and apricots.

It actually made quite alot too - it seemed to go on forever. I managed to give some to my Mum and Dad to take home with them, take some to my friends Jenny's to have after our tea, give some to my friend Vikki whilst she had to sit for hours in A&E after breaking her ankle and then there still seemed to be loads left for me and Karl!

Posh Rocky Road

700g milk chocolate
4 x regular sized mars bars/snickers (maybe I'm just greedy but I used 6 in total, 3 of each!), roughly chopped
50g marshmallows, plus extra for the top
50g maltersers
50g diced apricots, roughly chopped
50g raisons/sultanas or cherries (I used cherries as Karl doesn't like raisons!)
50g cornflakes
chocolate sprinkles for decoration

Line a baking tray 33 x 23 x 2.5 with grease proof paper (I didn't have a tin of this size so used a slightly deeper smaller one.)
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water, stirring every so often.
Once melted, take the chocolate off the heat and mix in all of the dry ingredients.
Make sure it is all evenly distributed through the chocolate.
Pour into the lined tin and using the back of a spoon, flatten the mixture into the tin.
Decorate the top of the rocky road with more marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles.
Allow to set in the fridge over night or at least for a good few hours.
Once set, remove from the fridge and leave out for an hour or so(or else you'll never manage to cut it!) and cut into pieces.


  1. Yummmmmm!!!! I love the chunkiness of your rocky road, I always find mine is never thick enough. Adding Mars Bars sounds like a brilliant idea too.

    I also love how the pink marshmallows match your tea tin on the worktop.

  2. oh my christ, that looks gorgeous! i think i could eat that whole plate to myself VERY easily! x

  3. I need to print off this and make it!! That looks so good. x

  4. This looks delish, I love Rocky Road but like you I don't like buying it from supermarkets/cafe's because it's never that great! I make a version with Snickers too and I really think they add something yummy to it don't they! The only Rocky Road I've ever tried out and about that I've liked was from Hummingbird so I can recommend that one :)

  5. ive never made rocky road as the texture of marshmallows kinda freaks me out a little - but these look so delicious!

  6. oh wow how yummy does that look?!!?!? I have made rocky road before but I have just stuck to the usual cherries, marshmallows, raisins and biscuits. However after seeing this I am definitely going to try it with mars bars and snickers!!! Looks delicious, thank you for sharing :) xxx
