Baking | Rocky Road Treats

Friday, 28 November 2014



It's almost the weekend and, although they're not really a festive treat, I was really craving some rocky road. I made these yesterday and they turned out so well - fudgy chocolate, crunchy biscuits, fluffy marshmallows, juicy raisins and even some white chocolate drops, too!
So, I thought I'd share the recipe and get y'all into the baking spirit!



These are such an easy treat to make, and are so popular with everyone - It's just a shame you have to be patient enough to let them to set haha!

To make your own rocky road treats you will need;
75g Butter
300g Chocolate (whichever kind you like best!)
3 Tbsp Golden syrup
100g Broken Digestive Biscuits
100g Mini Marshmallows
75g Raisins (or cherries, if you prefer)
White chocolate drops to sprinkle on top
Icing sugar to dust


. Start by melting the butter, chocolate and golden syrup over a low heat. Keep stirring until combined.
. Remove from the heat and mix in the broken digestive biscuit pieces.
. You can then add in the marshmallows and fruit and combine, making sure all of the fillings are covered with the chocolate mixture.
. Line or grease a tin and slowly tip the mixture into it - levelling it off with a knife.
. I then sprinkled my treats with some white chocolate chips, this is optional of course, but I did not want to stir them into the mixture in case they melted & disappeared!
. You then need to place this in a fridge for at least 3 hours to let it set - try to be patient!
. Once set you can remove from the fridge, cut into squares or bars and dust with a little icing sugar!

Yummy!


These are so yummy and are a great bake to make with children as there is very little heat involved! They are super easy and can be made with ingredients you already have in the cupboard!

Let me know what you thought and show me your turn out on Instagram with #peacelovevintage!

  1. Ugh, I LOVE THESE. I'm not a fan of sultanas or cherries, so I might swap them out for something different -- I might make two batches and substitute peanuts for one and then go nut-free in the other (because one of my brothers doesn't like nuts, the nutter). I don't think I've made rocky road before, so I am definitely going to give it a shot!
