Decadently thick slabs of chocolate tossed with all sorts of crunchy, biscuity, chewy and gooey things.

If you're looking for a simple recipe to make with the kids over the Easter holidays, this Mini Egg rocky road is a great option. The only 'cooking' that's required is melting the chocolate and butter and golden syrup together. Then it's just a case of stirring in the shortbread, Mini Eggs, fudge, and marshmallows. It only takes about 20 minutes to assemble everything, but you'll need 20-30 minutes for it to set in the fridge afterwards. Once it has set you can add on any extras you like for topping. This is a really chilled recipe because you can swap or change any part of it you don't like. See our top tips for ideas.

Method

  1. Grease and line an 18cm x 28cm tin with baking parchment. Put the chocolate, butter and golden syrup into a bowl, resting over a pan of simmering water and heat until melted.
  2. Meanwhile, put the shortbread into a large plastic bag, tie a knot to secure and bash with a rolling pan, to crush. Put 50g Mini Eggs in a plastic bag and bash to crush. Cut the fudge into small pieces with scissors.
  3. Take the chocolate off the heat, tip in the biscuits, Mini Eggs, fudge and marshmallows. Stir until the mixture is well combined. Tip into the prepared tin and chill.
  4. For the topping: Melt the milk chocolate with the butter. Pour over the chilled rocky road mixture, to cover. Scatter over the fudge and Mini Eggs, then chill until set or ready to serve. Cut into 16 even squares.

Top tip for making this Mini Egg rocky road

There aren't really any hard and fast rules for rocky road - you can add or swap ingredients as you like. For instance, if you don’t have shortbread or you’re not a fan, swap for any other kind of biscuit. Digestives are an obvious choice, but Ginger Nuts work really well too. Opt for chocolate biscuits for an extra chocolaty taste. Throw in some currents or sultanas, or chopped almonds or pecans to change up the texture.

Swap the milk chocolate for dark chocolate for a richer option or white chocolate for a sweeter choice. Or use a mixture - one for the base and another for the topping.
