Recipe | Easy Maltesers rocky road (one for chocoholics!)

Rocky road is an easy and versatile recipe. In addition to chocolate, marshmallow and biscuit you can add almost any ingredients you want – I chose Maltesers!

Malteasers rocky road chocolate and marshmallows recipe

Rocky road is a great recipe. At heart it is a “no bake tray bake” (if that makes any sense!) which allows you to make your own chocolate bars with very little effort or mess.

But before I can continue, I have to ask: who knew Maltesers wasn’t spelt Malteasers? I have been spelling it (if only mentally) as “Malteasers” with the extra ‘a’ my whole life! But no, my friends, it’s Maltesers.

*quiet sigh of disillusionment*

Now I’ve said my piece about that, let’s get on with the rocky road recipe!


  • 400 g chocolate of your choice. I used Cadbury’s Dairy Milk.
  • 100 g Maltesers
  • 100 g cookies/ biscuits of your choice. I used chocolate digestives (you can’t have enough chocolate!).
  • 100 g marshmallows. Ideally mini marshmallows. I used full size but had to cut each one into 4 using kitchen scissors.
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 100 g butter/ margarine

Instead of Maltesers you can add chopped nuts, glace cherries or other dried fruit. Depending on the size of the tin you’re going to use you may have to increase the amount of wet to dry ingredients.

Most drool-inducing picture of ingredients ever:

Line your choice of baking tin with greaseproof (baking) paper. I used a shallow rectangular tin, but a brownie pan would also work.

Snap your cookies/ biscuits into small chunks. I cut the Maltesers in half but I don’t think that’s strictly necessary.

Break 250 g of your chocolate into chunks in a bowl and heat for 30 seconds in a microwave. Add the butter/ margarine and give the mix another 30 seconds in the microwave. Stir to encourage melting and the ingredients to combine. Add the golden syrup and return the bowl to the microwave for 20 second bursts, stopping and stirring in between each until all the chocolate has melted.

Alternatively, you can put the chocolate, butter and syrup in a glass or Pyrex bowl and heat it over a pan of hot water.

Now add your choice of dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture and stir well. Spoon this mixture into your tin and flatten it down well using a fork or spatula.

Now melt the remaining 150 g of chocolate (microwave or in a bowl over hot water). Pour this over the mixture in your tin, aiming it at any “gaps” there may be around the edges or between larger chunks of dry ingredients.

Put in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours. When fully set, remove from the fridge and use a sharp knife to slice into rectangles.

And that’s it! Your own Maltesers rocky road πŸ™‚
