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!
So I thought it was about time to come up with a new recipe.
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.

Rocky road is one of my favourite recipes! When I was in France I remember the British chocolate brands being either ridiculously expensive or non existent- the rest of Europe needs to catch on to Maltesers!
It is so simple but so delicious! Definitely I miss weird things like maltesers, wispa, dairy milk fruit and nut and definitely creme eggs! X
It’s always the little things you miss when abroad! I missed Marmite so much while I was in France – although they sold it, it was so expensive I couldn’t justify it!
That is the one thing I miss too! My Husband hates it so is pleased that it is too expensive to buy here. Luckily my Mum brings me a jar every time she comes to visit, so I have a small collection now! I also miss cheddar cheese! I suppose in France you had a lot of choices? All the cheese here I find quite bland in comparison x
That’s lucky! I mostly travelled with just hand luggage so taking a large jar wasn’t possible. There was definitely a lot of cheese in France – though I’m not actually a fan of many French cheeses (especially the runny ones!) The big slightly out-of-town supermarket where I was living stocked one brand of cheddar cheese, which was an unexpected though very welcome surprise!
