  • 200g Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa solids works best)
  • 2-3 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 135g Butter or Margarine
  • 100g Mini Marshmallows (chopped regular marshmallows work too)
  • 200g Digestive biscuits (rich tea can also be used)
  • Icing sugar to dust
  • Optional Ingredients
  • Raisins, dried cranberries or any dried fruit
  • Nuts
  • Anything else you think would be tasty
  • Please share any additional ingredients you included or things you did differently. Remember if using additional ingredients to change the amount of biscuit and marshmallow accordingly so as to have enough mixture to cover them.


    1. Line a small to medium sized square baking tray with baking paper.
    2. Place biscuits into a freezer bag and bash with a rolling pin or just the side of your fist until they're broken into a mixture of everything between dust and 50p size lumps. Put this to one side.
    3. In a large sauce pan melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup over a gentle heat stiring it constantly until there are no or almost no more lumps of chocolate visible, then remove from the heat.
    4. Take Biscuits, marshmallows and any additional delicious ingredients and pour into the pan of the chocolate mixture. Stir all this into the mixture until everything is completely covered.
    5. Tip the mixture into the lined baking tray, making sure you get it all, and spread the mixture out to the corners.
    6. Refrigerate this for at least 2 hours then dust with icing sugar and cut into fingers of sizes you deem necessary.

I always swap out golden syrup for black treacle which gives it a bit of extra umph. I also never add fruit or nuts but instead try out a new chocolate bar each time - Cadbury's caramel bars work a treat!

Oh and rich tea instead of digestive biscuits make a nice alternative.

I love to add crystallised stem ginger, cut in to small pieces with scissors. Also have experimented with sprinkles of chocolate covered crispies on top and chcoclate covered popping candy to keep everyone on their toes!

I have made this many times and it always goes down a treat. I add cranberries and sometimes I use gingernut biscuits and rich tea. Whatever I use, it never last long.

I used this recipe but made up the 300g of ingredients with a mix of digestives, marshmallow, raisins, popcorn and salted peanuts. Yum

Fantastic recipe. Don't use marg, seems to cause problems with setting and butter tastes a million times better. Use decent chocolate too, anything but the bottom of the range. I put crushed maltesers and smarties as additional ingredients into the last batch....didn't last long in my house. Today I'm trying jelly babies and smarties. The syrup adds extra flavour that some recipes dont have, can also also add few drops of vanilla essence.

I had bought a packet of a certain mint sandwich biscuit covered in chocolate, which I thought was horrible in its original form so I bashed those into small chunks and used them with the other basic ingredients and got a really nice, minty result.

Quick, simple and delicious. Worked perfectly. Little lad made most of it and was very proud of himself!

Love this recipe, used malted milk biscuits, as didn't have any rich tea or digestives, with marshmallows and little sprinkles! Only one problem, I put the mixture into the tin and there was loads of butter on the top and around the sides, I used the right amount of butter like the recipie said, did anyone else have this problem?

I use a combination of digestive, caramelised biscuits, crunches and maple syrup. Use real butter only. When finished I put a Malteser to mark each piece. Rocky Road with Speed Bumps.

I love this recipe and make them regularly. For Christmas I added some cranberries, pecans, 1 orange juice and zest. Covered with loads of snowy icing sugar and edible silver glitter. Sooo christmassy :)

Iuse 300g dark chocolate but the real secret is forget the biscuits (crunchie`s are the real rocks in the road)

Add a bag of rolos for the perfect chewy combination.
