Learn how to make an irresistible Malteser Rocky Road, perfect for chocolate lovers. This fab dessert is made in a few easy steps. 


Units Scale
  • 150g (5oz) butter
  • 200g (7oz) dark chocolate chips
  • 200g (7oz) milk chocolate
  • 60ml (4 tbsp) golden syrup
  • 150g (5oz) mini vegetarian marshmallows
  • 100g (3 1/2oz) malted milk biscuits, broken in half
  • 300g (10 1/2oz) Maltesers
  • 200g (7oz) white chocolate


  • 100g (3 1/2oz) Maltesers
  • mini marshmallows


  1. Line a 20 x 20cm (8 x 8in) baking tin with baking paper. Set aside.
  2. Place the butter, dark and milk chocolate, and syrup in a large glass bowl. Zap it in 20 second stints in the microwave and stir it in between. See notes for an alternative method.
  3. Let the chocolate mixture cool a bit, then add the marshmallows, biscuits and Maltesers. Stir until everything is coated in chocolate.
  4. Tip everything into the baking tin and press into an even layer. 
  5. Melt the white chocolate in a separate bowl by zapping it in the microwave.
  6. Pour the white chocolate in blobs on top of the chocolate filling. Give it a random stir to create a marbling effect then flatten gently. 
  7. Decorate with Maltesers and marshmallows, pushing them gently into the rocky road so that they will “stick” when it’s chilling. 
  8. Place in the fridge and chill for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. 
  9. Remove from the tin and slice into portions. Enjoy!


  • In this case, silicone bakeware is ideal, which is what I used. No need to grease or line it!
  • If you don’t have a microwave, you can place the butter, chocolates and syrup in a pot and melt it over a low heat, stirring it frequently. 
  • This rocky road is best stored in an airtight container in the fridge. It should last for 2-3 weeks then.
  • If you can’t get hold of malted milk biscuits, you can use digestive biscuits.
