Easiest Rocky Road

Easiest Rocky Road

Rocky road – the easiest ever!! I’ve taken one of the easiest indulgent chocolate recipes and made it even easier. Forget about messy crushing of biscuits, you don’t even need to bother with that in my rocky road recipe.

Ultimate lazy baking! Love chocolate? Love chocolate digestives? You’ll love this rocky road then!

You must have seen Digestive Nibbles in the shops. They are Digestive biscuit balls covered in chocolate.

As well as being a delicious treat, they are also ideal to use in baking. You can also use them to make a cheesecake base or add them to brownies for a biscuity crunch, but I thought I’d try them in the easiest rocky road ever.

Melted chocolate enriched with butter and golden syrup, melted and then mixed with crushed biscuits and marshmallows. That’s how I like rocky road.

It reminds me of the Rocky Road ice cream I first tried when I was a child, chocolate ice cream filled with marshmallows and other delicious chunks of chocolate and cookies. Who could resist that?!

This delight can be yours with a few minutes of melting and stirring. Well, you’ll have to wait a couple of hours for it to set in the fridge but if you factor that time in and make a batch earlier in the day, you can be enjoying a chunk or two later on.

After melting in a pan, fold in your digestive nibbles (or crushed biscuits) and marshmallows and then pour into a pan to set.

I used a silicone pan lined with baking parchment.

Note this isn’t a sponsored post, I just think the digestives nibbles are great for baking with.

I’m unable to resist chocolate and biscuits and adore this type of no-bake. I hate crushing the biscuits though, so this is brilliant. Thanks for sharing with #WeShouldCocoa.

How amazingly easy are these Lucy! As you say, definitely the ultimate in lazy baking 😉 I’ve always see the digestive nibbles in the super market – it’s as though they wink at me (!) but I’ve yet to try them because I just know that I’m going to like them far far too much 😀 Thankyou for joining in with #BakingCrumbs it’s great to have you link up Lucy
