Okay, so I realise I post a lot and I mean a LOT of Rocky Road recipes but it is one of my favourites! Can you blame me when it is so easy to make and my absolute favourite?
This is my first recipe for Easter and this year I have gone a but OTT with how many recipes I have made I think there are five so far and it’s not Easter yet so there might be some more. Usually, I just try and post one or two for each occasion, Christmas, Easter, Valentines etc. but Easter Eggs have been in shops since Boxing Day so I’ve had a lot of time to plan and decide what I want to make.
This recipe includes as many Easter-related treats as I could possibly find in the shops. It has mini Crème Eggs, Mini Eggs, Malteser Bunnies, M&M Eggs, Galaxy’s Golden Eggs, Smarties Eggs basically if you can find it in the Easter aisle of your local supermarket then it is in this recipe. I also used the usual plain biscuits and marshmallows.
The base of this Rocky Road recipe is exactly the same as all the other ones on my blog like the Terrys Chocolate Orange Rocky Road or just my normal Rocky Road. I use milk chocolate, butter and golden syrup as the base. I find this makes the rocky road less solid when it sets. You can of course use just chocolate if you want it is totally up to you. I start with the golden syrup and butter in a pan and melt it on a medium heat then I add in the milk chocolate and melt it until it is nice and smooth and chocolatey.
Next, I add in the biscuits and marshmallows. The biscuits I usually just crush using my hands and they are all different sizes so somethings you get a big chunk of biscuit and other times you get smaller pieces. You can cut them into halves or quarters if you want but I usually find they just all crumble and break anyway that’s why I do it by hand. Next I add in the marshmallows, finally, I add all the Easter goodies, because I used so many they were spilling out of the pot slightly but they were all completely covered in chocolate which is what you need.
I always leave some chocolate for the decoration on the top in this case I had a few leftover biscuits, marshmallows and Easter treats for decoration. I just sprinkle them over the top making sure every inch of the Rocky Road has something on top and push it into the chocolate slightly so that when it sets they stay where they are and don’t all start falling off as soon as you cut it.
I use a square 9in x 9in tin. If you use one smaller you might not have enough room for all the rocky road or you might end up with really big chunks when you cut it up. If you use a larger tin then you will probably have the opposite problem in that it might not all fit or you might end up with really small chunks when you cut it up. I leave mine to cool on the side in the kitchen and although it takes longer to set it sets slightly softer than if you put it in the fridge but either is okay.
I have filed a Youtube video for this recipe. I filmed a video of me decorating my Millionaires Cake but this one is a chattier video and a step by step guide of how I have made this recipe. You can find the video HERE if you would like to watch it and the full recipe is in this post. If you like the video please please please subscribe to my Youtube channel as I don’t think I have any followers as of yet and let me know what you think. I’m still experimenting with which kind of video I like better whether it be the decorating style, the chatty style or something completely different so please let me know what you think. Also, if you want to see videos of any other recipes then please let me know and if there are any recipes you would like to see on my blog then again please let me know! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this recipe and the video to accompany it.
Hints and Tips
Of course, you don’t need to use all the Easter Treats I did you can use one and just 200g of it instead of lots of different ones.
This will last in an airtight container for three weeks!
You can use dark chocolate instead of milk but I wouldn’t use white.
This recipe makes 9-12 bars.
400g Milk Chocolate
75g Golden Syrup
125g Unsalted Butter
100g Hobnob Bisucuits
58g Malteser Bunnies
89g Mini Creme Eggs
80g M&M Eggs
80g Galaxy Golden Eggs
90g Smarties Eggs
80g Mini Eggs
- Line a 9×9 inch square baking tray with greaseproof paper and leave to the side.
- In a bowl crush up your digestives, I do this by hand just because the digestives will be different sizes some will be small others will be big.
- Measure out the marshmallows and leave to one side. This will be easier when your chocolate is melted to mix all the ingredients in.
- In a pan melt the milk chocolate, butter and syrup on a low heat. Mixing continuously until all melted. The chocolate should be smooth.
- Remove the pan for the heat and add in 75g of the crushed hobnobs, 100g of the Marshmallows and mix until they are all coated in the chocolate. Finally, add in most of the Easter treats. I left two or three of each for the decoration. Mix until all your ingredients are coated in chocolate.
- Tip the mixture into the baking tin making sure you push it into all the corners and there are no gaps.
- Finally, sprinkle the rest of marshmallows, digestive biscuits and Easter Treats on top of your rocky road and push them gently down so that they stick to the chocolate.
- Leave in the fridge overnight or until the chocolate has set this can take up to 4 hours but I prefer to leave it overnight just to be sure.
- Cut it into individual squares. I cut it mine into 12 squares.
