  • Our recipe for rocky road brownies is based on the classic American rocky road treat, a no-bake slice packed with milk chocolate and marshmallows.

    This delicious twist on our chocolate brownie recipe takes only 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish as it’s such a simple and easy recipe, even though there are quite a few ingredients. While you’ll need to bake these brownies, each piece still contains caramel-filled sweets, nuts, and must-have marshmallows.


    • For the brownie batter:
    • 350g softened butter
    • 500g sugar
    • 150g good quality cocoa powder
    • 100ml golden syrup
    • ½ tsp salt
    • 6 free-range eggs
    • 200g plain flour
    • For the fudge icing:
    • 300ml double cream
    • 100ml milk
    • 100ml golden syrup
    • 400g good quality dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids
    • For the rocky road topping:
    • 2 handfuls soft caramel sweets
    • 50g pistachios
    • 100g salted peanuts
    • 2 handfuls mini marshmallows


    • Boil the cream, milk and syrup. Remove the pan from the heat and let the liquid cool a few degrees.

    • Finely chop the chocolate and fold it into the warm cream, so the chocolate melts.

    • Spread the icing over the cake and sprinkle with chopped caramels, pistachios, peanuts and marshmallows.

    • Refrigerate until the icing is firm and then cut into squares.

    Top tips for making rocky road brownies:

    To find out if your brownies are done yet, poke through the middle with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out moist with chocolate mixture, the brownies aren't finished yet. But if the toothpick just comes out with melted marshmallow then the brownies are probably done.
