Rolo & Smarties Rocky Road - Recipe

August 15, 2018
So as many of you may or may not be aware I love baking. It's a hobby of mine. It's something I can get creative with and I love being creative. Baking is something I have loved since I was a wee kid. When ever I bake now it takes me back to the times I baked with my siblings and mum as a wee kid, chocolate crispy cakes were my childhood, and we would lick the bowl clean. I mean, you can't bake without licking the bowl. Today's post is about the magnificent rocky road I made for leaving high school back in June and to give to my teachers, all of which loved it. Though, if rocky road isn't your thing I have a previous post on a oreo red velvet cake you might enjoy reading about. 

This rocky road is something a bit different, I had seen many create rolo rocky road but me being me wanted to put my own spin on it so I decided to use smarties as well. Smarties and rollo's take me also back to my childhood. We used to get a treat once every Friday and for me that included either: smarties, rolos, freddo frogs or some other form of chocolate. I do love me some chocolate (leaving this here in case you want to steel a girls heart, lol). 

Ingredients you need:
  • 450 grams milk chocolate
  • 50 grams white chocolate
  • 100 grams smarties
  • 100 grams  mini marshmallows
  • 100 grams Digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 250 grams  Rolo's 

  1. Grease and line an 8 inch square baking tin with baking  paper. 
  2. Place the milk chocolate in a large bowl and pop it over a pan with simmering water. stir regularly until its melted.
  3. Take the bowl of melted chocolate off heat
  4. chop up 2/4 of the smarties and rollo's and place into the bowl of chocolate along side the marshmallows and digestive biscuits, stir until the choclotate covers all the ingredients. 
  5. Pour the mixture into the tin you greased and lined earlier
  6. Crush 1/4 of the smarties on top of the mixture and place the remaining 1/4 on (unchopped/ crushed)
  7. Chop 1/4 of the rollos and place ontop of the mixture and place the remaining 1/4 (unchopped)
  8. Melt 50 grams of white chocolate in a clean bowl and pop it over a pot that's simmering with water and stir until melted (just like you did with the milk chocolate at the beginning)
  9. Use the melted white chocolate to drizzle over the rocky road, this just makes it look a bit more fancy. 
  10. Place the tin with the rocky road mixture into the fridge for at least one hour or until the chocolate is set. Then cut it into small squares and serve. If there is extra squares of rocky road left, keep them in the fridge in an air-tight container.

I do admit, this rocky road is very over the top but that's probably why I love it so much. I mean who doesn't love chocolate and caramel, its a comfort for me. I did find it hard not to have more than two pieces of this rocky road. I just loved it so much. However you do need to be a very sweet toothed person to enjoy this, but that isn't a problem for me as I love sweet foods. I mean pudding over savoury any day for me. 

This rocky road is crunchy, gooey and creamy at the same time. This is in fact my new favorite rocky road and I will be making it again and again. Well, unless I find/ create a new favourite. What are your favourite rocky road recipes, let me know in the comments. Also let me know if you would like to see more baking posts in the future.
