Fabulous! I used chocolat Menier - 70% cocoa - maltesers instead of turkish delight which I don't like and rich tea biscuits. Next time I'm going to try with a mixture of plain and milk chocolate and crunchy bar. This is the easiest recipe on the planet and so tasty!

Yummy... these are good, but seriously naughty. I did find them quite sickly so made them more bite sized squares rather than bars. Took the leftovers into work and they only lasted minutes with our morning tea round!

Very delicious and so easy to make! I used crunchie bars and the honeycomb added a great crunch! Just need to be careful not to bash the biscuits up too much as the chunks are great

I've made this a couple of times, i've used dimebar pieces for an added crunch and have made little individual ones in tiny cup cake cases for a one bite nibble to serve with a cup of tea. delicious.

Love love love this recipe!! I personally think that crunchies and mars/milky way bars work the best as malteasers tend to melt a bit! Also good with ginger nuts instead of rich teas and I always cut mine into small chunks as the bars are way too sickly for me!

Divine!!! Big family favourite. Brilliant for kids to do on a rainy day. We used half dark, half milk ccooking chocolate and 1 Milky Way, 1 Mars bar and 1 Crunchie. Have made twice since, make double quantity, as they disappear like lightning.

yum yum :) I have made these a few times now and they are always polished off very quickly (mainly by me!) They are so easy to make and taste good most ingredients thrown in!
Made them yesterday with 200g dark and 100g milk choc, rich tea biscuits, marshmallows and raisins :)
*Mia maybe try a better quality of white choc?? I have used milkybar in the past and it doesn't melt down well.

I made these using white chocolate but when it melted it was very grainy, then turned into a custard! Anyone know what might of went wrong?

Absolutely scrummy! Made with 2/3 milk and 1/3 dark chocolate with biscuits, crunchie, maltesers and milky way! Left the chocolate a bit longer to cool which stopped everything melting.

Theyn set really quickly and keep well in the fridge, I'll definitely be making this again!

Good simple recipe - I didn't have any bars of chocolate to hand though so shopped up half a box of celebrations...also threw in a handful of dried cranberries for an added twist...

I found this recipe easy to make, my 3yr old grandson helped but I found it over rich. The tiniest bit was enough and uless my daughter likes it as a chocoholic I wont make again

I made these for my sister as a well done for passing her 1st year at university. Personally I felt that the dark chocolate made it far to rich and would recommend using half milk and half dark chocolate.

I made mine with Maltesers and crunchie and found that the marshmallows did melt a little too much so I'd recommend leaving the chocolate mixture to cool for longer than the recipe suggests but other than that it all turned out really well.

These are absolutely delicious! Very easy to make too. I used half milk and half dark chocolate and they went down a treat with children and adults alike. I might try a more grown up version next time with pistachio nuts.

This recipe is way too sweet for me, but I didn't make it for me, it was for my children who said it was great. I cut it into small slices. Remember to let the chocolate cool or things will melt too much before it's squished into place.

I made these with no chocolate bars but put half pecan's and glace cherries in there too - I love experimenting with recipe's, and even though I am only eleven I have been testing these Rocky Road's out on the 'hardest-to-please food critic' in the world - my Dad. (He loves them)!!!

Made these yesterday they've all vanished already so I think I can safely say this is something I'll be making again and again!
