Method

  1. Grease and line an 18cm square brownie tin with baking paper. Place biscuits in 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-sized lumps. Set aside.

  2. In a large saucepan melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup over a gentle heat stirring constantly until there are no or almost no more lumps of chocolate visible, then remove from the heat. Leave to cool.

  3. Take the biscuits, marshmallows and any additional ingredients and stir into the chocolate mixture until everything is completely covered.

  4. Tip the mixture into the lined baking tin, and spread it out to the corners. Chill for at least 2 hrs then dust with icing sugar and cut into 12 fingers.

Really delicious and easy to make - 6 year old made it with help from 10 year old. We added chopped apricots and dried cherries to ours.

great recipe, used less golden syrup and added roasted cashews and topped with roasted sesame seeds rather than icing sugar, considering adding pine nuts next time, thanks again for the recipe

Love this recipe, tastes great. One problem though: when I put the mixture into the tin there was loads of butter around the side and on the top, had to use a paper towel to soak up the extra butter, did anyone else have this problem?

I had the same problem the first time I made them, I think it's the quality of chocolate I used as I've used decent chocolate since and it's been great. Definitely the best rocky road recipe!

Biscuits do vary in 'absorbency' so that with some, the butter doesn't incorporate so well. Try adding the melted butter gradually and aim for a drier end result. You don't have to absolutely put the whole lot in. It really only helps to bind the mixture together.

Fantastic easy recipe for a Rocky Road you can't go wrong with. My little boy has made these to sell to raise funds for his cubs group, adding popcorn to the next batch.

I made a 'grown up' rocky Road with amaretti biscuits and grace cherries (and marshmallows obviously)
