Rocky Road Chocolate Bars

  • Author: noasmodernkitchen
  • Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: 12 bars 1x


  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 100g digestive biscuits
  • 60g whole glacé cherries
  • 70g mini marshmallows, or large ones cut into cubes


  1. Line a tin with greaseproof paper. I use a loaf tin that is around 10cm x 20cm.
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces, and place into a bowl. Set the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Do not let the bowl touch the water. This is to make sure the chocolate doesn’t seize.
  3. Cut the butter into cubes and add to the bowl, along with the golden syrup. Stir continuously.
  4. Once everything is melted, turn off the hob and remove the bowl from the heat.
  5. Put the digestives into a freezer bag, and using a rolling pin, gently bash the digestives so that you have a few larger pieces, a few smaller pieces and some biscuit dust.
  6. Add the contents of the bag to the bowl, along with the whole glacé cherries.
  7. If using large marshmallows, cut them into cubes and add to the bowl. If using mini marshmallows add them straight in.
  8. Gently fold the contents of the bowl together until everything is well coated in the melted chocolate.
  9. Put the mixture into the lined tin and gently press down. Once the mixture has cooled, refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut in to squares and enjoy!
