Classic Rocky Road Bars

This rocky road recipe is not only dead easy to do, but can be a snack for the blokiest of blokes, or girliest of girls. It really does cover every base!

125g Butter
300g Dark Chocolate
60ml (or 3 tablespoons) of Golden Syrup

200g Mini Marshmallows (but that only because I wanted some to eat whilst I was cooking!)

200g Rich Tea biscuits (or any of the same thickness)

Start by mixing all of your chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a nice big pan on a gentle medium heat. The picture on the left is getting there, but until your mix is smooth and there are no buttery lumps in keep going, make sure to keep stirring as you don't want the chocolate to burn!

Once this is done, take all of your rage out on those nearby biscuits. ROAR!
Don't pulverise them into dust though, you want good chunks, about the size of the circle you make with your thumb and forefinger. Mix these evenly into your chocolate mix, and then add most of your marshmallows. Hopefully you haven't eaten too many!

Pour this mix into a large flat tray or dish and dabble a few of the marshmallows on top!
Cover this with tin foil and leave in the fridge to set. Chocolate, went warm, has a tendency to pick up and take on any smells. So if this is uncovered in your fridge and there's some nasty onion in there, these WILL take on that smell.

After a few hours, remove this and cut into nice little bars or bitesize chunks, and for a little extra finesse, dust with icing sugar!
These are great fun to make and SO easy, let me know how you get on and how you've personalised your own Rocky Road Bars!



  1. I don't think I'm very blokey but this will do very well for me. You're right about fridge taste transfer. Perhaps the answer is to have an extra fridge just for your chocolate.

    1. I would love to, the same size too, just a matter of filling it with enough delicious treats!

  2. This blog is fantastic; what you show us is very interesting and is really good written. It’s just great!!
