If Easter has past when you're reading this, then this recipe for Easter Rocky Road is perfect for using up your leftover Easter chocolate (if you have any!) by combining it all into one delicious treat! I've used lots of Easter favourites in this recipe like Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs, but you can use whatever leftover Easter chocolate you have in the house. You could even use Easter eggs as the chocolate part of the recipe! As it's a no bake recipe it's great for making with the kids and it's such a simple process for anyone to follow as you don't even have to turn the oven on!
How to make Easter Rocky Road...
I started by preparing the fillings in a bowl, I broke up the biscuits and added the marshmallows, mini eggs and golden eggs. (To make sure the Easter Rocky Road stayed vegetarian friendly I used gelatine free Freedom Mallows, which I’m a big fan of!)
Then I melted both chocolates, the golden syrup and butter together in a pan on a low heat.
I mixed almost all of the chocolate into the bowl of fillings until well coated. Then I put the mixture into the tin and pressed it down. I like to save a bit of the melted chocolate mixture to pour on top and fill in any gaps. Then I dotted the top with the Creme Eggs, Malteser Bunnies, and more Mini Eggs and Golden Eggs. It went in the fridge to set for a few hours. Once it was set I removed the Easter Rocky Road from the tin and sliced it into squares.
What is the best kind of chocolate to use for rocky road?
I used chocolate callets by Callebaut for this rocky road, any good quality chocolate will work well and taste delicious. I’ve also made rocky road many times using supermarket own brand chocolate. I recommend avoiding cooking or baking chocolate.
How should you store rocky road?
Rocky road is best kept in the fridge. It can be stored at room temperature, but it will be much softer in texture and not last as long. Stored in the fridge, rocky road can last up to 3 weeks (well technically… you’ll probably eat it before then!!)
Tips for making the Easter Rocky Road:
- You can use any combination of Easter chocolates for this rocky road. You could also use Terry’s chocolate orange eggs, Oreo eggs, Reese's peanut butter eggs, Lindt eggs... there's so many options nowadays the choices are endless!
- You can use a baking spread like Stork in rocky road, but I much prefer using butter as I think it tastes better. But of course it’s down to personal preference!
- I use Freedom Marshmallows in all my rocky road as they are vegetarian. Many marshmallows contain gelatine so check the packet if you are serving this rocky road to vegetarians. Freedom marshmallows are available online and in Sainsburys. M&S also do a gelatine free marshmallow.
