What’s the best kind of baking at Easter? That’s obvious… the most chocolatey, the most egg filled, the most indulgent recipe you can muster, of course!

Welcome to my Easter Rocky Road. This is super simple baking and a perfect way to get the kids creative in the kitchen. It’s not just fun to make though. What awaits is a mouthwatering treat filled with crunch, gooeyness and layers of chocolate.

A slab of Easter Rocky Road with lots of mini eggs embedded in.

At Easter we have ALL the excuses to have chocolate upon chocolate. And that’s exactly what this Easter Rocky Road is.

Get every mini chocolate egg you can find and throw it in. Melt everything together with butter and gold syrup, press even more eggs in, along with some biscuit and marshmallow for loads of texture, then set overnight in the fridge.

Simply divine.

Easter Rocky Road Ingredients

Ingredients for Easter Rocky Road laid on a table.

  • Golden syrup
  • Mixed mini eggs
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Oreos
  • Small chocolate eggs – Such as Creme Eggs, Malteser eggs, Galaxy eggs etc, foil removed!

How to make Easter Rocky Road

Step 1 ingredients in a bowl for the Easter Rocky Road recipe. Milk chocolate, butter and gold syrup.

Once this has set, it’s fine to keep at room temperature, unless it’s a warm day and then it would be much better in the fridge.

Top tips

Best chocolate to use

I use my favourite Callebaut chocolate for this recipe. This chocolate is just amazing. It melts so well and really makes a difference to any recipe. 

When you buy it in bulk (1kg bags at a time) from Amazon it works out to about the same price as supermarket chocolate. A good investment I think as it really does make SUCH a difference. You can then use it again for other bakes.

Type of baking tin

I usually use a tin like this for my rocky roads or tray bakes. It measures 20cm x 20cm and gets the best thickness. You can use another size or shape but just be aware your squares might be thinner or thicker.

Line the tin!

Make sure you do this so you can get the rocky road out quicker and without breaking it. I use baking parchment or baking paper for almost everything I bake. No sticking, ever.

I buy it in bulk from Amazon so I don’t run out, and it works out cheaper. Be careful not to confuse it with greaseproof paper, which isn’t suitable for no-bake cakes.

How to melt the chocolate 

I find the easiest and quickest way is to use the microwave, but do this carefully as it can burn (no longer than 30 second bursts, stirring in between).

You can also bubble up some water in a pan and place a heatproof bowl over it with the chocolate inside (make sure the water isn’t touching the bottom). This takes a little longer but the chocolate melts nice and evenly.


How long will Easter Rocky Road keep for?

I mean, there’s very little chance of you having this problem! But just in case, it should be fine for up to a week. After that the marshmallows tend to get very sticky and wet where they’ve been cut (so I’ve heard).

The chocolate slab is too hard to cut up! What should I do?

Once you’ve taken it out of the fridge, allow it to cool to room temperature for 30 minutes before trying to chop it up.
