Even though I always knew Maltesers were a pretty fabulous chocolate treat, I've been really overwhelmed by how much you all loved my Maltesers Fudge recipe and how many of you made it. So I'm treating you to another Maltesers recipe seen as it's Christmas - Maltesers Rocky Road! It's an easy no bake chocolate treat, packed with malted milk biscuits, marshmallows and Maltesers of course. I also added in Malteser Teaser chocolate, but this is optional. This Maltesers Rocky Road is so chocolatey and extra crunchy with all the Maltesers in it. It's such a yummy treat!
How to make Maltesers Rocky Road
Start by melting both chocolates, the golden syrup and butter together in a pan on a low heat. Then leave the mixture to cool for 10 minutes.
Prepare the fillings in a bowl, then mix about two thirds of the melted chocolate into the bowl of fillings until well coated. Then pour it into the tin and press it down. Pour the remaining melted chocolate mixture on top and fill in any gaps.
Decorate the top with Maltesers, some cut in half. Put it in the fridge to set for a few hours, then chop it up into slices ready to be devoured!
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!!)
More tips for making the Maltesers Rocky Road:
- To make sure the Malteser Rocky Road stayed vegetarian friendly I used gelatine free Freedom Mallows, which I have mentioned before as I'm a big fan of them. You can by them online or from Sainsburys. Regular marshmallows contain pork or beef gelatine, and are therefore not suitabe for vegetarians.
- You can use any combination of milk or dark chocolate you like, or all dark or all milk, as long as the total amount is 450g.
- You can use a baking spread like Stork in rocky road, but I much prefer using butter as I think it tastes better.
- Golden syrup is sold all over the world, so check the international section in your supermarket if you're not based in the UK. You can also buy it online from Amazon (see link below). If you can't get hold of it, light corn syrup is the closest thing to it, however I've not tested this recipe with light corn syrup.
