Who doesn't love a slice of Rocky Road? Fluffy marshmallows, crunchy nuts and chunks of biscuits coated in melted chocolate it's as simple as that. This cake is great fun to make with all the family and the best bit is you can personalise your cake by mix and matching the ingredients with your favourite sweets and biscuits.


  1. Line a 24 cm/9" square baking tin with non-stick baking paper.

  2. Heat the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat until melted. Remove from the heat.

    • 125g Unsalted Butter
    • 150g Dark Chocolate (Broken into Pieces)
    • 150g Milk Chocolate (Broken into Pieces)
    • 3 tbsp Golden Syrup
  3. Stir in the crushed biscuit pieces, nuts and marshmallows. Tip the mixture into the tin and smooth the top with a wet knife.

    • 100g Digestive Biscuits (Roughly Crushed)
    • 100g Brazil Nuts (Roughly Chopped)
    • 100g Mini Marshmallows
  4. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the top of the cake to decorate.

    • 50g White Chocolate (to Drizzle)
  5. Chill for about 2 hours until firm enough to cut.

    I made these vegan by using vegan milk chocolate, vegan marshmallows and oreos, as well as walnuts in the same quantities as suggested in the recipe. They turned out amazing!

    Love this Rocky road cake. I cut it into small sizes and freeze it so when I feel like having a piece it’s ready to eat in a short space of time. Yummy. 🤤

    I use fruit and nut chocolate (Aldi or Lidl) or whole nut and add dried cranberries. Only 50gms of marshmallows. Add about 150g of biscuits as I like the crunch. Use lotus biscuits for a change. LOVE this’s helped me put loads of weight on during lockdown!!!

    Hi guys,
    This is a great recipe! However, there is no need for the butter at all. I also didn’t use dark chocolate but that’s personal preference. I just melted 300g of milk chocolate with 3tbsp of golden syrup (get a cheap one it doesn’t have to be expensive) and then mixed in cheap biscuits and mini marshmallows and topped with melted white chocolate. They came out beautifully and it doesn’t take 2hrs to set at all. I put it in my fridge and within 20 minutes it was set. Taste amazing!!!

    This cake was AMAZING! A perfect Bake for the kids. Though ours came out a bit crumbly because I think we overheated the butter, golden syrup and chocolate to much. Also we just used Milk Chocolate and no dark and it tasted delicious!

    Made this with fruit and nut chocolate and dark chocolate and added dried cranberries...everyone loved it. Next time will experiment and up the fruit and nut chocolate and cut back on the dark (not a big fan of dark choc) and see how this turns out 😀

    Really easy to make with kids! One tip is to wait until mixture is cooler before adding in marshmallows to keep their shape, otherwise they just melt.

    so easy and very filling, bit sickly if you have too much, ( you cant leave it alone!)
    would this possible to freeze?

  80. 5 star rating

    Fab and easy recipe to follow - by far the best I have ever made and so does anyone who tries it! I substitute raisins for the brazils but have also added a few toasted crushed cashews which also work well. Goes down a storm at any bake sale and doesn't last 2 mins in my fridge.
    On a personal note I prefer to keep it in the fridge as it is less gooey to eat.
