Delicious Oreos are encased in creamy white chocolate, along with some tasty marshmallows and fruity glace cherries. This Oreo Rocky Road is a super easy and yummy treat that you can make very quickly. It all comes together in moments, and then you just pop it in the fridge to set. No baking needed!
Cookies and cream is such a delicious flavour and the white chocolate really enhances it and makes it extra yummy! You don't have to add the cherries if you're not a fan, but I love the fruity edge they bring to this treat. You could also use other Oreo flavours in this rocky road to mix it up!
How to make Oreo Rocky Road...
In a large mixing bowl, mix together broken up Oreos, glace cherries and mini marshmallows. Reserve some Oreos for the topping. In a pan on a low heat, melt together the white chocolate and butter.
Mix about two thirds of the chocolate mixture into the bowl of fillings until well coated. Then put that mixture into the tin and press it down. Pour the remaining chocolate mixture on top and fill in any gaps. Then decorate the top with the reserved Oreo pieces.
What is the best kind of chocolate to use for rocky road?
I used white chocolate callets by Callebaut for this rocky road, any good quality white 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 definitely eat it before then!!)
More tips for making the Oreo Rocky Road:
- I used glace cherries to add a bit of colour and fruityness to the rocky road, but you can leave them out if you're not a fan
- 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
