Used cheapy digestives and they had good crunch and tasted fine. I used 200g or milk choc and 100g bournville. The variations I have tried are turkish delight and revels. The turkish delight was lovely but the revels were FAB! Took into work and had lots of suggestions for alternatives. These are the ones I like the sound of best
Clarnico mints
Fingers of fudge
Milky ways
Read comments above and shortbread sounds good. Has anyone tried gingernuts?

Absolutely gorgeous.

mars bars also work well with this recipe. The higher % chocolate, the better the cake holds together and tastes. Play around with the biscuit combination to vary texture.

I made these for a cake sale at work for Comic Relief, using dark and milk chocolate, crunchie bars and substituting syrup with honey, they were really popular everyone commented how good they were! Think as suggested may use a combination of turkish delight and crunchie next time and even considering using this recipe decorated with small chocolate eggs for Easter!

I made these for my husband to take to work for his birthday. They got a big thumbs up and a request for more.

They are delicious and I think that the turkish delight adds a little twist to the usual rocky road recipes. I think these are going to be a regular favourite in my home.

Me and my little sister made it and found it fun and easy to make hower we only used a third of the igredients because we only had 200g of chocolate ,which didn't make a lot .Also insted of cutting then in to rectangle shaped ,I cut them into squares so there was enOugh to give to my friends who thoughly enjoyed them !

A huge success! I used two Turkish delight bars plus a Crunchie, and one friend said, "This is not just any Rocky Road; this is like... Rocky Motorway!"

I made these for a work Christmas fuddle. My oven had broken and I needed something which didn't require cooking! When I made these, I thought that they had gone wrong - there didn't seem to be enough chocolate covering and they didn't look tasty. Anyway, I took them to work and they were one of the first things to vanish (and I made 2 batches!!) - everybody loved them!
I made a turkish delight version with 2/3 dark choc and 1/3 milk choc (my fav) and a crunchie version with 2/3 milk choc and 1/3 dark. I only used 1 tbsp syrup in each batch.

You really need to use a mixture of milk and dark this recipe. I used 100g dark (72.5%) and 240g milk. I used 3 tablespoons of condensed milk instead of the syrup and only half the butter. For the filling I used shortbread, pistachios and marshmallows. I also set the mixture in a yorkshire pudding tray to make the individual portions. I'm asked to make these all the time and they never last a full day! Yum!

Absolutely brilliant, but felt like I was putting on weight just looking at it! I added 2 thirds dark chocolate and 1 third milk so it wasn't quite so bitter. I also put it some walnuts to give it a bit more crunch.

I used digestive biscuits, a mixture of plain and milk chocolate and added some glace cherries. A huge hit. Not cheap, particularly when making double quantities but quick, easy and delicious. Will certainly make again

Great for a bonfire night treat, made it with marshmallows and malteasers. I use tesco value dark choc, just as good and a third of the price.

Great with maltesers and marshmallows.

A big hit with family and friends. I halved the amount of syrup, used maltesers instead of turkish delight and added maraschino cherries. Yum...only trouble is it disappears off the plate so quickly!

Made a huge triple batch,using a couple of the variations suggested by previous testers, for a bunch of friends - no sooner had I turned my back and they had demolished the lot. So I can't say for sure how nice they were...

Just made these as a 'thank you' to staff, they are the best 'rocky road I have ever made. I think the use of rich tea biscuits is the difference. In Oz they are called 'morning coffee' but are the same thing. I used 70% cocoa chocolate and was very pleased with the result.Rather than cutting up the marshmallows I used the mini ones.
