Rocky road.

Whenever I feel like baking up some treats, but can't be bothered with too much effort, I always turn to flapjacks or rocky road. Both are very quick and easy throw-in-ingredients-and-mix-together recipes, especially rocky road which I decided to make today! Being a vegetarian, I had to forgo the marshmallows [although I have made it with vegan marshmallows before, which I found online] but used meringue in its place, which was a great suggestion from a friend.


4 meringue nests, broken up.
Digestive biscuits, broken up [I used about 1/3 of the pack]
Around 300g chocolate - I used galaxy caramel and cadbury dairy milk. Last time I made rocky road I used the caramel chocolate, thinking I'd picked up normal galaxy. It was only later I realised what I'd done, but the rocky road was so nice with the caramel melted in!

Break up the chocolate into a glass bowl.
Put the bowl in a saucepan of boiling water and melt the chocolate, stirring every now and again.
Try not to eat the melted chocolate - mmmm...
Break up the biscuits and meringue nests, and pour the chocolate over.
Mix well...add more meringue/biscuit if you feel necessary.
Transfer the mixture into a tin lined with greaseproof paper. Flatten down. I added sprinkles to jazz it up a bit! Leave to cool, then pop into the fridge for an hour or so.
Cut into small sqaures and enjoy them all to yourself with your loved ones.

I've already ate a sqaure of this, and it is very sweet, so I'm glad I cut it up small! The meringue makes a nice substitute to marshmallows as it is quite sticky and chewy. Going to take a load of this to my boyfriend's tonight, I'm sure he will appreciate that.

Anyone been baking lately? I love finding new and exciting recipes so link me up!


  1. i am dying just looking at this. i want it :)


  2. I LOVE Rocky Road, it's just so yummy. Though waiting for it all to set absolutely kills me. The best RR recipe I've ever used/made was from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook (though I'm sure you could find it online) which has cornflakes in, and gives it the best crunch! xx

  3. Oh wow this looks so yummy :)
