For the rocky road

  • 250 g Milk chocolate
  • 250 g Dark chocolate
  • 200 g Butter or baking spread
  • 150 g Golden syrup
  • 75 g Marshmallows gelatine free if serving to vegetarians, I use Freedom Mallows
  • 100 g Digestive biscuits broken up
  • 175 g Any orange chocolate I used milk & white Terry's chocolate orange, smarties and matchmakers

For decoration

  • 125 g Any orange chocolate I used milk & white Terry's chocolate orange, smarties and matchmakers


  • 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 digestive biscuits, the marshmallows, and the orange chocolate you are using - chop any big chocolate pieces up
  • Put the butter, milk chocolate, dark chocolate and golden syrup 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 and let it cool for 5-10 minutes
  • Pour about three quarters of the chocolate mixture into the mixing bowl of digestive biscuits, marshmallows, and the orange chocolate. and stir to fully coat the fillings with the chocolate mixture
  • 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 more orange chocolates
  • 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.
  • I used digestive biscuits for this rocky road, but you could also use shortbread, Rich Teas or 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.
  • You can use any combination of orange flavoured chocolates for this rocky road. You could also use Terry's dark chocolate orange, Lindt chocolate orange truffles, Cadbury's chocolate orange buttons, chocolate orange Tolberone… there's so much choice nowadays!
  • 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. There are also other gelatine free marshmallow brands like Dandies and Free From Fellows.
  • 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.
