These were delicious and I honestly think my most popular sweet treat to date. I have to give credit where it is due - 4 year old Stanley was an excellent sous-chef and was very good at breaking up the digestives and pinching marshmallows when he thought I wasn't looking (the best chefs have to taste their food, of course). Get creative with the fillings - you could use dried fruit, ginger nuts, Biscoff, almonds/walnuts, popcorn, Oreos... have fun with it!
2.5 bars dark chocolate (I used Bournville which are 180g each)
3tbsp golden syrup
120g vegan butter
Vegan mini marshmallows (they do them in M&S but I got these from Amazon)
Vegan chocolate covered honeycomb
Gluten free salted pretzels
Vegan white chocolate chips
Puffed rice cereal
Break up your chocolate and add it to a large heatproof bowl (preferably glass). Add the butter and golden syrup.
Pop the glass bowl above a pan of boiling water and let the chocolate, butter and syrup melt together gently (make sure you’d stir regularly and don’t let the water touch the bottom of the bowl or it’ll burn!)
Meanwhile, throw whatever fillings you want into a different large bowl. Break up the digestives into smallish pieces (top tip: you want them to still be quite substantial pieces, don't pummel them into a fine dust!) There’s no rules for the fillings - just throw however much of whatever you want in!
When the chocolate, butter and syrup has melted, leave it to cool for about 4 -5 minutes.
Line a tin with grease proof paper.
Pour the melted chocolate into the fillings and fold it all in.
Spoon the mixture into the greased tin and pop in the fridge for about 3-4 hours. Enjoy!
Top tip: When it comes to cutting your rocky road, run a sharp knife under hot water after every slice you do: it will ensure the edges are smooth and it won’t crumble.
