I haven’t made rocky road in a long time. Partly because I had a recipe I always used in England and got asked to make for friends fairly regularly. Unfortunately the main ingredient was Maltesers which I cannot find anywhere in Germany!
Although Tim has lost his sweet tooth since moving to Germany, this is something he seems to get through fairly quickly!
If you do an internet search for rocky road you will come up with a HUGE list of recipes all with different chocolate and biscuits inside.
I have kept mine fairly simple with digestive biscuits (I can buy these in Germany at the moment so I am definitely making the most of it!), Twix, Daim and a few marshmallows!
The marshmallows add a slight chewy texture while the Twix means there is the occasional pocket of caramel!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the recipe. If you give it a go I would love to see pictures or hear what you think!
Rocky Road Recipe
200g dark chocolate
1 tbsp golden syrup
200g dark chocolate Digestive biscuits, blitzed or crushed in to crumbs
4 whole Digestive biscuits
3 Twix bars (6 fingers)
Daim Bar (56g)
6 large marshallows (or a small handful of mini marshmallows)
In a heatproof bowl placed over a pan of boiling water, melt the dark chocolate, butter and golden syrup together.
Once melted, take off the heat and stir in the crushed Digestive biscuits.
Break the Twix and Daim bars in to small uneven pieces. Tear the marshmallows in to small pieces. Add everything to the mixture.
Take the four whole Digestive biscuits and using your hands break in to small uneven pieces. Add to the bowl and mix everything together.
Pour in to a lined 20cm tin. Push the mixture down and smooth the top.
Chill in the fridge for a minimum of an hour.
Take out of the fridge and cut in to small squares.
