Makes 15 generous pieces
This is chocolate overload, but in a good way. I’ve done away with some of the usual gems in a rocky road and replaced them with the next level of deliciousness, hence the ‘ultimate’ in the title. Maltesers, mini Kitkats and honeycomb (homemade or shop-bought) are present along with the obligatory soft marshmallows (although if you’re going vegetarian leave these out or use a vegetarian alternative).
I’ve topped it with drizzled white chocolate, just in case there wasn’t enough chocolate in the first place.
I probably would have bought pieces of honeycomb, but I couldn’t find any in the shops at the moment, and didn’t want to use crunchie bars as I feared they would just dissolve when the melted chocolate was poured on top. Instead I made my own using this Good Food recipe and put roughly a third into the mix.
This recipe has been taste-tested by Mr Food Wife, plus lots of my yoga-mummies at our get together this week, and it gets their seal of approval.
- 300g dark chocolate
- 100g unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 100g mini marshmallows
- 100g maltesers
- 100g kitkat bite-size pieces (or regular ones broken into one-inch pieces)
- 100g honeycomb, broken in to bite-size pieces
- 100g white chocolate
Step 1: Melt the dark chocolate, butter and syrup in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (ensure the base of the bowl is not in contact with the water).
Step 2: Once melted, remove the bowl and leave to cool for a couple of minutes.
Step 3: In a separate, large bowl, measure out the Maltesers, Kitkats, marshmallows and honeycomb.
Step 4: Pour the molten chocolate mix over the Maltesers and co and stir gently.
Step 5: Pour into a traybake-sized tin and place in the fridge whilst you melt your white chocolate.
Step 6: Place the white chocolate in a clean bowl over simmering water and gently melt.
Step 7: Remove the rocky road from the fridge and use a metal spoon to drizzle the white chocolate over the top.
Step 8: Cover with cling film and leave in the fridge until set.
Step 9: Cut into 15 pieces and try not to eat all at once!
