  1. Grease and line an 18cm square brownie tin with baking paper.

  2. Place 200g digestive 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.

  3. In a large saucepan melt 135g butter or margarine, 200g dark chocolate and 2-3 tbsp 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.

  4. Take the biscuits, 100g mini marshmallows and up to 100g of additional ingredients (dried fruit, nuts, popcorn, honeycomb), if you like, and stir into the chocolate mixture until everything is completely covered.

  5. 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 so quick to make. I used 100g dark chocolate, 100g milk chocolate and butter (not marg) I also added Rice Krispies as well as biscuits and marshmallow.....Yum!

Delicious! I used half bourneville and half cooking milk chocolate and it turned out beautifully. 8" square tin gives a nice result which I cut into 16 squares...yum.

Tried this recipe last night. It's reassuring to see others who found it sticky as mine is best eaten with a spoon. As some folks's seem to be ok I can't understand why some isn't. I'll definitely be trying a different recipe. Just a thought. Could it be that I used marg instead of butter. Did anybody else with sticky roads use marg

The first time I made this it was very sticky (used half butter, half Vitalite) but only used 125g fat as misread recipe. Also used 3 tbs of golden syrup. Second time round, got a much better set with 125 g half butter, half Vitalite and 2 tbs golden syrup, but it took 5 + hours in the fridge to get a good set. I also wonder if the biscuit makes a difference - I like the crunch of rich tea. Dried cranberries in the second batch worked really well.

OMG!! These are YUMMY, just done a batch for tomorrows Easter egg hunt/ bake sale not sure they'll last that long! Used half milk half dark as suggested and threw in dried mixed fruit and crushed walnuts too, scrummy.

Disappointing. After they'd had 3 hours in the fridge the base was still sticky and a little greasy. I'll be trying a different recipe.

I added crushed daim bars and used milk chocolate instead of plain - such a treat!

Love this recipe. Made these with my 3 year old but used 100g milk choc and 100g dark. Added raisins and maltesers and these taste amazing!

I used this recipe as a base, but I used about 150g of dark chocolate and 150g of malteaser teaser bar chocolate. I also substituted digestive biscuits for shortbread and added Turkish delight chunks, raisins and macadamia nuts. I personally think this take on the rocky road is delicious so if you like the extras I've mentioned, give it a try! In the future I might try adding smashed up cadburys crunchie instead of the malteaser bar.
