Rocky Road (chocolate fridge cake)

This is a simple recipe where the amount of ingredients used vary to each person's taste. This is just my guidelines.

230g milk chocolate
4 1/2 tablespoons of golden syrup
50g unsalted butter (salted compliments dark chocolate best)
rich tea biscuits

Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bain marie and stir until thoroughly combined.
Bash the biscuits into smaller pieces and cut the marshmallows up so that they are quite small.
Mix the biscuits and marshmallows into the chocolate mixture so that they are completely coated.
In a lined tin, put in the mixture and press so extra air is knocked out.
If you have any extra marshmallows, melt them in the microwaves for a few seconds and instantly pour over the rocky road. You can add biscuit pieces on top of this.
Leave in the fridge to firm.

Add raisins.
Use white chocolate.
Spice it up with some chilli.

To me this is a classic that is best kept uncomplicated.


  1. OOh I love the suggestion of spicing it up with some chilli.

  2. I love rocky road but I'd leave the marshmallows out for me!

  3. Wow, this looks delicious. Interesting with the chilli.
