So, Rocky Road. When I hear the name, I always picture an actual rocky road, paved with marshmallow, biscuit pieces and chocolate (I want to go to there).
I made these indulgent rocky road squares to take in for my work mates for my and another teammates birthday. I have something of a reputation at work for being a feeder (in a good way, I hope!), and these bars went down very well.
The awesomest thing about Rocky Road, apart from it being so easy to make, is that its super easy to customise to become your favourite rocky road. Hate raisins? They’re gone! Love macadamias? Doubled!
- 400g (about 3 cups) melted chocolate - I used a mixture of plain, milk and white chocolate, and I used the cheapest bars available which were 30p per 100g
- 1 can/397g sweetened condensed milk
- 12 digestive biscuits, crumbled, into 5p size pieces
- 150g (about 1.5 cups mini marshmallows)
- 150g (about 4 mini packets) maltesers
- 50g salted peanuts
- First: you'll need a large pan - at least 9x9 inches (you can also use larger pans, even twice as large, your rocky road bars will just be thinner. Either line with parchment paper, or grease lightly with a little sunflower oil. I did the latter, which worked just fine.
- Next: in a large heatproof bowl, melt your chocolate in the microwave on a high heat, pausing to stir every 40 or so seconds. Once its all melted, crumble in your biscuits, and quickly add the marshmallows, salted peanuts and maltesers (I bashed these up slightly using a rolling pin while they were still in the packet), and the condensed milk. Stir thoroughly to combine, and then pour into your tin.
- Sprinkle the top of your rocky road with more marshmallows, nuts, and drizzled white chocolate, and leave to set in the fridge - they won't be solid enough to cut up for at least two hours. Cut into small, or large pieces, and serve!
