Maltesers Rocky Road

Maltesers Rocky Road

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!

Step by step…

I started by melting both chocolates, the golden syrup and butter together in a pan on a low heat. Then I left the mixture to cool for 10 minutes.

I prepared the fillings in a bowl, then I mixed about two thirds of the chocolate into the bowl of fillings until well coated. Then I put the mixture into the tin and pressed it down. I poured the remaining melted chocolate mixture on top and filled in any gaps.

Then I dotted the top with Maltesers, some cut in half. It went in the fridge to set for a few hours, then I chopped it up into slices ready to be devoured!

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.

  • 250 g Dark chocolate
  • 200 g Milk chocolate
  • 200 g Butter or baking spread
  • 150 g Golden syrup

  • 75 g Marshmallows gelatine free if serving to vegetarians, I use Freedom Mallows
  • 200 g Maltesers
  • 75 g Malteser Teasers optional

For decoration

  • 35 g Maltesers


  • Line an 8" square tin with baking paper. I grease the tin first with a little butter to help the paper stick to it
  • Put the butter, golden syrup, dark chocolate and milk chocolate in a pan and melt together on a low heat, stirring together as it melts. Once melted and combined, remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10 minutes
  • Prepare a mixing bowl filled with the broken up biscuits, the marshmallows, the Maltesers and the Malteser Teasers
  • Pour about two thirds of the chocolate mixture into the mixing bowl of biscuits etc. and stir to fully coat the fillings with chocolate
  • Pour the whole lot into the lined tin, smooth down then add the remaining chocolate mixture to fill in any gaps
  • Add the remaining Maltesers on top, cut some in half with a knife and dot them around
  • Put in the fridge overnight, or for 3-4 hours to set
  • Remove from the tin and slice into pieces. Store in the fridge for a firmer texture, or in a cool place for a softer texture
  • If you store the rocky road in an airtight container it can be kept for 1 - 2 weeks, and up to 3 weeks in the fridge. It is best kept in the fridge

    Ive never made a malteser rocky road or even any other bake with malteser which is strange as i do rather love them. I could very happily tuck into this one, so if i get a chance to make one this year I shall try this one as it looks so scrummy. Thank you for linking to #CookBlogShare.

    I have made my own version of this on my blog so I know how utterly delicious it is, and how moreish it is too. I made a batch of crunchy rocky road at the weekend, but I didn’t get chance to photograph it because my friends and family scoffed it too fast!
    It looks so good Kat! Thank you for sharing with #BakeoftheWeek x

    Made these today. They are dead easy to make, and I’m a helpless baker! End result it’s so impressive and the kids (and husband) love them. I love when recipes work and yours always do for me. Will be trying more of your recipes for sure. Thank you.
