I went to a wedding last week and they had this as a wedding cake!!! It was iced in the traditional fashion but I can't for the life of me remember what was between the icing and the cake (jam? ganache? marzipan?) Does anyone have any suggestions as to what would work best as I am in the process of making one myself. Thanks!

OH is addicted to Rocky Road and loves this. I used halved glace cherries instead of turkish delight, plus 200g Green & Blacks milk and 100g Lindt 85% cocoa (as that's what was in the cupboard) and was delish. Was a bit too rich for me when made with all dark chocolate. Nice warmed slightly (20 secs in Microwave) with ice cream.

anybody know why anytime i melt my chocolate it doesnt go smooth when it melts and kinda went crumbly when i mixed it into other ingredients here..no water got into mixture either..is it the butter that makes it smooth cause i didnt use much butter at all??

Forgot to say that I didnt add the marshmallows - not a big fan and thought it would have complicated the taste.

Made these recently for a family party and everyone loved them, adults and children alike. I did use half dark and half milk chocolate though and think my children would have found it too bitter with just dark. Also added Maltesers with the rich tea, which was more milk chocolate. Tasted perfect with half and half. Will be making them again!

I made these for my kids (age20 & 17) they loved them . I now have to make them every week ! They tend to last that long sometimes. I used crunchie bars as they are my kids favourite.Very sweet you only need to cut them into tiny squares, FAB & so easy

I absolutely love this recipe! I used turkish delight bars, digestive biscuits instead of rich tea and used milk chocolate instead of dark

Wow, so easy to make and delicious (made with Maltesers). My son and I made them 5 mins before our guests arrived (slightly soft when served but no-one complained - could have done with making a while beforehand, but they didn't even last a day!

I really like the subtle rose flavour of the turkish delight. I followed the recipe, but it would be a very easy on to adapt.

I used to make this with my mum years ago and we never put golden syrup in, I'm pretty sure we used condensed milk and a shot of espresso, ( or nescafe with a tiny bit of water), and we used milk chocolate and white cooking chocolate, cherries, crushed nuts, marshmallows and short bread biscuits and it taste's amazing! the coffee really brings out the flavor of the chocolate but don't worry if you don't like coffee you can't taste it one bit! I'm making it tonight for a saturday movie night in! yum!

Made this with my 12 year old daughter, very easy she could have done it alone!!
We used cadbury dairy milk as not keen on dark choc, and also used cadburys turkish delight broken into squares,wish i had cut the squares in half though so they spread out more evenly,but still absolutely scrummy.
Will definately make this again,and have 2 crunchies standing by to make one of the variations!!

I made these for a girly tea party with my friends. They polished them off and a few took home seconds for their families. I made two batched one with Green & Blacks 72% dark chocolate, tea biscuits and milk way and another with Lindt 72% dark chocolate, turkish delight and shortbread fingers. Both were a success but I preferred the crunchiness of the shortbread. I thought the intensity and bitterness of 72% dark chocolate works better with the sweetness of mallows, milky way and turkish delight. I'll be making these again sometime soon and experimenting with other sweets.

For Kirstyjolly the mallows are suppoed to stay intact so maybe leave the chocolate mixture slightly longer to cool next time you make it.

Liked it but maybe a little over-sweet, possibly the chocolate I used? Also, are the marshmallows supposed to melt or stay intact? Mine melted but maybe I did not leave the chocolate mixture long enough to cool....

I love this recipe - as do all friends and family that have tried it!
Until the last time we made this, we used a supermarket's own regular brand of dark cooking chocolate, which was lovely. However, last time we used their highest quality dark chocolate (approx 72% coco) and what a difference!- the chocolate mixture was glossy and covered the other ingredients with ease. It also tasted even better than our original attempts, which I didn't think was possible!

So to summarise: although this is at its best with higher quality chocolate, it tastes just fine when using slightly cheaper options.
