For the rocky road

  • 500 g White chocolate
  • 200 g Butter
  • 100 g Shortbread or digestive biscuits broken up
  • 75 g Marshmallows gelatine free if serving to vegetarians, I use Freedom Mallows
  • 45 g Meringue nests broken up
  • 75 g Dried strawberries

For decoration

  • 2 tbsp Freeze dried strawberries


  • Line an 8" square tin with baking paper. I grease the tin first with a little butter to help the paper stick to it
  • Prepare a mixing bowl filled with the broken up biscuits, the marshmallows, the broken up meringue and the dried strawberries. Cut any bigger pieces of dried strawberries in half. Reserve a handful of the marshmallows and one of the meringue nests for decorating
  • Put the butter and white chocolate in a pan and melt together on a low heat, stirring together as it melts
  • Once it's fully melted and combined, take the pan off the heat
  • Pour almost all of the chocolate mixture into the mixing bowl of biscuits and meringue 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
  • Decorate the top with the reserved meringue and marshmallows, and the freeze dried strawberries
  • 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
