Ultimate “Baking” treat (perfect for Great British Bake Off!)

Okay so techhhhhnically this isn’t baking, but it’s one of my faves, is super easy to make and you can customise it with whatever you fancy! I like choosing ingredients my husband wouldn’t like….

This is my slightly adapted version of a BBC good food recipe, found here: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/easy-rocky-road%3famp

I did not create this recipe πŸ™‚


For this absolute delight, you will need…

A brownie baking tin, about 18cm
Baking paper
Extra margarine/butter for greasing
A rolling pin/something to bash ya biscuits with

200g digestive biscuits
135g butter/margarine
3 tbsp golden syrup (or more if you’re feeling decadent!)
100g marshmallows (mini or chopped up regular sized ones)
200g dark chocolate (70% works perfectly)

I also sometimes love to add:
x2 26g individual bars of Crunchie
a handful of chopped nuts
a handful of raisins (a. they add some extra chew, and b. then I can kid myself that this is a healthy treat…surely a handful of raisins = 1 of your 5 a day???)

Here’s the process!

  1. Grease and line the baking tin with some baking paper.
  2. Melt the butter/margarine, dark chocolate and golden syrup in a big saucepan. Make sure you keep stirring until it has all melted. Set aside.
  3. Put the digestives in a bowl/freezer bag and bash with a rolling pin until you have a variety of sizes.
  4. Add your extra ingredients (if you want any!) to the crushed biscuits. On this particular occasion I opted for Crunchie bars, which I chopped up into chunks.
  5. Tip the biscuity mixture into the chocolatey saucepan, and stir so everything is covered.
  6. Tip the mixture into you lined tin. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours minimum…and enjoy!

This is my fave recipe for Rocky Road, I just love how adaptable it is!

I will be enjoying a slice of this tonight, with a decaf in my new Emma Bridgewater mug (see my last blog for a pic of this beauty!), whilst watching the Great British Bake Off!

Boris thinking this looks way better than his delicious fish pouch in jelly!

Let me know what your go-to Autumn treat is, I’d love to hear what you enjoy making! Plus I’m really keen to bake something pumpkin-y this Autumn, so let me know if you have any suggestions!!

Thank you for reading, see you in my next blog!

  1. First off, omg your cat! What a cutie! I love a good Rocky road and these sound seriously scrumptious. It’s such an easy process to follow as well which is great, definitely going to give this a try!

    1. He’s such a little softie (apart from when he meows for food before the morning alarm goes off!!) So pleased you’re giving it a try, let me know how it turns out 😁


  2. OMG this sounds soooooo delicious and really quite easy to do, even for a non-baker like me. My daughter would love me forever if we tried this, bookmarking it now. And your cat is absolutely precious! Lisa x
