Rocky Road is one of my all time favourite desserts and I will never turn one down (even on a diet!). Making these delicious treats at home is so easy and so much tastier and cheaper than store bought ones (around £2.50 for 12 servings). It requires no baking and just 5 ingredients. So, what’re you waiting for?
This Rocky Road recipe will definitely go down well at a bake sale, party or at the office. To perfect, I have just 3 tips for you:
- Don’t break the biscuits too small – you want a great crunch when you bite into a piece, so ensure that the biscuits are a good size. I recommend the size of a 20p coin.
- Ensure the mixed ingredients are cold before putting into the fridge – to get the rocky road to set, you need to refrigerate the mixture. If it’s still warm when you put it into the fridge, it won’t set properly.
- Don’t overload on the marshmallows – too many marshmallows will ruin the texture of the rocky road and also overpower the taste.
Vegan? Replacing butter with dairy-free butter or margarine will totally work! But remember, marshmallows are neither vegan or vegetarian (sad times). You can get vegan marshmallows but unfortunately they’re a little pricey. I suggest replacing them with raisins, sultanas or glazed cherries.
What’s perfect about this is that it’s totally bake free! Just mix the ingredients together and pop it in the fridge to set. I love making a batch of these on a Sunday afternoon ready for a week at work. They keep very well in a tupperware box out of sunlight and are a great pick-me-up during the office day.
