Sooooo who is ready for a wonderful Easter? I know I am. Easter is fast approaching which means we are all eagerly planning and gathering our Easter dinner ideas. What do we serve, how do we make everyone happy, will we have enough or will we have too much, how can we ‘wow’ everyone this year compared to last year… there is a lot to think about.
So I’m going to make it very easy for you with this post, starting with this Rocky Road Cake (and ending with awesome Easter menu items for you — you’re welcome). On Easter, we make Easter cakes, preferably Easter cakes with chocolate because an Easter without chocolate is no Easter at all.
This Easter cake is rather special because it is much, much easier than regular ‘baked’ cake. And we all love easy cakes, right? So thumbs up for this no-bake Rocky Road.
What is Rocky Road Cake
Whilst anyone can make Rocky Road very easily, it is great for getting the whole family involved in cooking as adults big and small would have fun breaking up the biscuits and mini eggs whilst sneakily eat a chocolate finger and a marshmallow or three.
I see you running out to get the ingredients to make Rocky Road for Easter (and at least two times before Easter — erm to ‘test’ it, of course)…
How To Make Rocky Road Cake
Now the fun begins…
- Step 1. Grab a heatproof bowl and melt the chocolate along with the butter and syrup over some simmering water.
- Step 2. Let the chocolate mixture cool for a few mins before adding in the rest of the ingredient and mixing well. See properly easy right?
- Step 3. Pour the Rocky Road minx into a lined baking tray and spread the mixture out to the corners.
- Step 4. Refrigerate for 2 hrs minimum or overnight and then cut into squares before serving.
The question is – will you be able to wait for the full 2 hrs? I never can…
Rocky Road Tips
- If you are making this when no mini eggs are available, then just add in extra chocolate fingers.
- If you don’t have mini marshmallows then just chop up some bigger ones.
- Feel free to use salted butter instead if you want a hint to salt.
- Do keep it refrigerated when not eating it.
Can Rocky Road Be Frozen?
Rocky Road Ice Cream
I have a simple cheats way of making rocky road ice cream. I chop up leftover rocky road and add it to store-bought vanilla ice cream. easy peasy.
