What is rocky road?
Rocky road is a type of no-bake slice consisting of chocolate and marshmallows along with other ingredients, such as biscuit pieces (digestive biscuits or shortbread), nuts, and glacé cherries or raspberries.

Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this rocky road. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Chocolate: Use a good quality chocolate that you enjoy eating on its own. I used a combination of milk and dark chocolate.
- Unsalted butter
- Golden syrup: Or light corn syrup, honey, or agave. This keeps the chocolate velvety smooth and creamy without going rock hard.

To make this delectable treat, simply place the chocolate, butter, and golden syrup into a large microwave-safe bowl.
Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.
Stir in the digestive biscuits and marshmallows until fully coated.
Pour the mixture into an 8×8-inch square baking pan lined with parchment paper and spread out evenly. Refrigerate until set – about 2 – 3 hours, or overnight.
Cut into bars and enjoy!

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
