A delicious twist on a classic – Cornflake & Malteser Rocky Road! Perfect for a party, or just as a good snack!
I know Rocky Road is one of those classical things you can bake with your kids, or just make when you fancy something chocolatey, but I have always LOVED it with Cornflakes and Maltesers inside. It is delicious. The Maltesers take care of the crunchy/biscuity element too the the Rocky Road, but the cornflakes make a nice alternative!
I like my pieces of Rocky Road nice and chunky (which you can undoubtedly tell from the pictures) and you might think OH MY GOD THEY’RE MASSIVE, but all my taste testers showed that even if you make the pieces smaller, you still go back for seconds!
Sometimes I make this with just cornflakes in the middle (half the chocolate mixture too) and bung all the marshmallows on top – it makes a slightly lighter treat, but both are truly delicious!
This recipe makes 25 large pieces of Rocky Road!
– 500g chocolate, chopped
– 200g golden syrup
– 200g butter
– 125g cornflakes
– 224g maltesers (two packs)
– 100g mini marshmallows
– 50g white chocolate, melted
1) Line a 20cm square baking tray with parchment paper, leave to the side.
2) Melt the golden syrup and butter gently in a pan on a low heat – when the butter and syrup have melted fully, turn the heat off and add the chopped chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted – if it doesn’t quite melt then turn the heat back on to a very low setting so that the chocolate doesn’t split.
3) Pour the cornflakes, maltesers, and mini marshmallows into a large bowl and pour the chocolate/syrup mix on top. Mix the ingredients together thoroughly until its all coated well. Pour into the tin and press down very firmly. Leave to set in the fridge for 1 hour.
4) Once set, melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the top! Leave to set for another half an hour and then cut into whatever size pieces you like!
Tips and Ideas
I often use either Cadburys Milk Chocolate or Callebaut Milk Chocolate – I find the flavour works best, but you can obviously use whatever you like. If using a chocolate with not many cocoa solids in then be careful when melting the chocolate that it doesn’t get too hot as it might split!
You can easily half the recipe for less, but these are so moreish you will want the large piece! Trust me!
P.S. Chocolate, marshmallows, biscuits, and syrup?! together? heaven.
