It’s no secret that we LOVE a slab of Rocky Road in this house. (‘Slab’ has given the game away that I never cut mine into small portions hasn’t it?!) There’s been Malteser Rocky Road, Christmas Rocky Road, and, of course, the Creme Egg Rocky Road.

Well now it’s time for the Rolo Rocky Road and I think you’re going to love it as much as we do! It’s so simple and easily made with bits and bobs you have in the cupboard. It’s also always a show-stopper when you give it as a gift or bring it out of the cake tin.

This is a fantastic recipe to make with the kids too and a great introduction to baking. You’ll be lucky if the chocolatey mix makes it into the tin though, so watch out for those fingers!

You’ll love this recipe because:

No-bake and whipped up in 15 minutes

✅ Squidgy, crunchy, chocolatey gooeyness

✅ Simple ingredients for impressive outcome

 FAQs about this Rolo Rocky Road Recipe

How do you make Rolo Rocky Road?

Start by melting your milk chocolate and dark chocolate, along with your butter and golden syrup. Allow this mixture to cool slightly. If you add your marshmallows or Rolos while it’s too warm, they will melt into a gooey mess. You should be able to touch the mixture with your finger without feeling the heat. Add your marshmallows, biscuits and Rolos to the mixture and mix in thoroughly until everything is coated. Press into your lined tin and then coat with the white chocolate and more Rolos! Chill until your Rolo Rocky Road is solid enough to cut.

How should I melt the chocolate mix?

Either in a saucepan or in the microwave. If using a saucepan, only use a very, very low heat or the chocolate, butter and syrup mixture will seize and go grainy. I also find it helps to put the butter in first and let it melt a little, so that the chocolate isn’t touching the bottom of the pan. If melting in the microwave, use a large bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts, being sure to mix very well between each burst. The mixing is really important as it distributes the action of the microwave and speeds the process up without causing any burning.

It’s too hard to cut up. What should I do?

If the slab of Rolo Rocky Road is too hard to cut straight out of the fridge, allow it to come to room temperature for 30 minutes.

What kind of tin is best to use for this recipe?

I use this tin to pour my Rolo Rocky Road into, it is 23cm square. You can use a different size tin, but remember that the slices will be thicker or thinner accordingly.

Can I decorate the Rocky Road?

I like to cut up some of the Rolos I decorate the top with as I think it looks pretty, but it’s up to you!

Any other useful tips for this recipe?

I use baking parchment or baking paper for almost all of my bakes and cakes. It means no sticking, ever. I buy it in bulk from Amazon so I never run out and it’s also heaps cheaper that way. Not to be confused with greaseproof paper, which needs to be oiled first – not good for no-bake cakes.

Do you recommend any particular chocolate?

I try to 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 at about the same price as supermarket chocolate. A good investment I think as it really does make SUCH a difference.

    Love this recipe. Delicious and an easy one to do with my 6 year old for his school fete, I think they’ll be popular!
    We have tried malteasers instead of Rolodex, that was also yummy!
