  • 250 g Dark chocolate
  • 200 g Milk chocolate
  • 200 g Butter or baking spread
  • 150 g Golden syrup
  • 100 g Malted milk OR digestive biscuits Broken up
  • 75 g Mini marshmallows gelatine free if serving to vegetarians, I use Freedom Mallows
  • 200 g Maltesers
  • 75 g Malteser Teasers or Maltesers Buttons 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. Tap the tin on the work surface a few times to help the remaining chocolate fill in any gaps and remove air bubbles
  • 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



  • 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 used malted milk biscuits for this rocky road, but you could also use digestive biscuits, shortbread or another biscuit like Hob Nobs.
  • You can use any combination of dark or milk chocolate that you like, or even make it all milk or all dark chocolate! Just make sure it reaches the total amount of 500g.
  • I use Freedom Marshmallows in all my rocky road as they are vegetarian (they haven't paid me to recommend them, I'm just a fan!). Many marshmallows contain beef or pork 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.
  • 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 or glucose syrup are the closest things to it, however I've not tested this recipe with them. Please note, you will not get the same results if you omit the golden syrup.
  • If you like glace cherries in your rocky road, you can add 75g of them to this recipe.
  • Although I provide cup measurements, I highly recommend weighing your ingredients out using digital kitchen scales*. It is the most accurate way to measure ingredients and will ensure the best results. Digital scales are very low cost and can be purchased for around £12 ($16.50) .
  • For teaspoon (tsp) and tablespoon (tbsp) measurements, please use measuring spoons* and not the type of spoons you eat with. Again this will ensure accuracy and provide the best results.
