How To Make Easter Egg Rocky Road

Preparation

Start by lining a square tin with grease proof parchment paper with enough to create an overhang. You will use this later to flatten down your recipe. 

Break up all of the dark and milk chocolate  into a bowl. Add the syrup and butter and put to one side.

Now break up the mini chocolate eggs into a large bowl, you want to break them up into large pieces, maybe in half, not too small. I find putting them in a sealable bag and hitting them with a rolling pin does the job. (Leave a few whole eggs to one side to garnish afterwards)

Break the mini eggs down with a rolling pin

Next break up the digestives into the bowl and mix in the the mini eggs, the digestives need to be smaller in size than the Mini Easter Egg pieces it’s ok if there are small pieces and crumbs too. 

Crush the digestives with a rolling pin

Melt The Chocolate

You can now melt the chocolate and butter mixture, I popped it into the microwave for 1 minute in a microwave-safe bowl, but watched it until the butter had melted. As soon as the butter melts take it out and stir. Don’t worry if the chocolate hasn’t melted, simply stir it with a rubber spatula and the butter very quickly melts the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate and butter

Gradually mix the biscuit mix and marshmallows until it is thoroughly coated with the melted chocolate mixture, it takes quite a bit of mixing. Give it a good stir with a wooden spoon to ensure all the biscuit is thoroughly coated.

Pour the Easter Chocolates Rocky Road mixture into the lined tin, and evenly spread into all of the corners, once it is evenly fold  place a piece of grease proof paper on top and squash it down to compact.

compress the Easter Rockey Road and put in the fridge

Now decorate the top of your Rocky Road with the mini bunnies, mini eggs and marshmallows to give your Rocky Road and Easter feel.

Refrigerate To Set

Pop your Easter Rocky Road into the fridge to set for at least 3 hrs.

Once your Rocky Road is thoroughly set remove from the fridge and slice into 20 squares with a sharp knife. I usually get my squares dead even, but honestly I had an issue cutting through the cute chocolate bunnies.

Once your Rocky Road is thoroughly set remove from the fridge and slice into 20 squares with a sharp knife.

How To Store Your Crunchie Rocky Road

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it melts pretty quickly if left out so keep it cool. It’s ok to serve on a buffet, or charcuterie, however leaving out overnight will make it soft. You can store it for up to a week, any longer and it won’t taste as fresh.

Rocky Road Recipe Variations

If you are not a fan of dark chocolate you can substitute the dark chocolate for milk chocolate. However the dark chocolate flavour is not overwhelming, if anything it balances the sweetness of the Rocky Road Bars. You can also add raisins for extra texture and flavour.

If Mini Eggs aren’t your thing, you can swap it for this for almost anything including 

  • Maltesers
  • Creme Eggs 
  • Leftover Easter Eggs 
  • Match Sticks
  • Add some sweet and salty mix-ins, such as popcorn
  • Anything with a bit of favour and texture will give this recipe and new and different flavour.
  • Coconut or Bounty Bars
  • Peanuts and Raisins
  • Shortbread 
  • Raisins and Walnuts 
  • Biscoff Rocky Road would also be a winner!
