To make the rocky road, you’ll need to grab the ingredients and equipment below. You’ll probably have everything you need all ready in the cupboard, so give it a try.
The beauty of a rocky road recipe is that it’s completely adaptable. So if there’s an ingredient you’re not keen on or you don’t want to use a particular brand or you’re on a budget, then everything can be switched out really easily.
Here’s what I used…
- Biscoff Biscuits – It would be Biscoff rocky road without the Biscoff biscuits. You can switch these for store own-brand varieties or specaloos cookies.
- Biscoff Spread – I prefer to use the smooth spread for melting and adding into the rocky road, but you can use the crunchy version if you want to. You can also swap out the Biscoff spread for your favourite cookie butter instead.
- Caramilk Chocolate – This has only just arrived in the UK and it’s divine! It you can’t get hold of Caramilk, then you can also use Caramac or swap out completely for white chocolate instead.
- White Chocolate
- Mini Marshmallows
- Caramel Popcorn
Now you really don’t need that much equipment to make this! In fact all you really need is a large mixing bowl, a rubber spatula to stir everything together with and a cake pan to set the rocky road in.
For the cake pan, this recipe works well in either of the following:

Right then, get ready for super easy to make recipe! Grab those ingredients, your equipment and any little bakers that are getting involved too. And if they are… keep an eye on those ingredients, they have a tendency to go missing while making the rocky road, ha!
So here’s what you need to do…
- Gently melt the butter, chocolate and Biscoff spread together. You can do this using a small saucepan over low heat or in the microwave in 30-second blasts. Just be careful not to overheat or burn the mixture.
- Break up the Biscoff biscuits into bitesize chunks and add into a large mixing bowl.
- Add in the marshmallows and caramel popcorn, then give everything a really good stir so it’s all mixed together.
- Pour over the melted chocolate mixture and give it another good stir, making sure everything is well-coated.
- Fill a lined brownie pan with the rocky road mixture and gently press down gently with the back of a spoon to pack it together.
- Optional: Melt some extra white chocolate and pour over the top of the rocky road, then stir in some melted Biscoff spread.
- Pop the rocky road in the fridge to chill for 6 hours or overnight.
- When set, slice up these naughty little treats into bite-sized pieces. Or big slices if your sweet tooth prefers.
RECIPE VARIATION: How you tweak the recipe is only limited by your imagination, but why not try my Crunchie version, Gingerbread version, Malteser version or why not try Twix chunks, caramel and fudge pieces instead!

Frequently asked questions
It really depends on how thick you want your rocky road slices to be. I recommend a 9-inch square cake tin or brownie pan for 1-inch thick slices.
A 9-inch square cake tin or a 10 x 7-inch rectangle pan will make between 20-25 slices.
Once cut into slices the rocky road should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge or a cool place. Keeping it in the fridge will help make the rocky road last longer as it won’t soften up so quickly.
Yes the rocky road is easily frozen. Make sure to wrap the slices up well using baking parchment, then either wrap in clingfilm or place in a sealable freezer-proof container. Remember to defrost thoroughly before eating.
If kept in the fridge, the rocky road will keep up to 1-2 weeks, or up to 1 month if frozen.
Recipe top tips and notes
This rocky road really is the one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make, but here are a few of my top tips that I’ve learnt along the way. Stick with these and I promise you’ll make the best ever Biscoff rocky road every time.
- Go for bite-sized biscuit chunks – It’s tempting to crush the biscuits, but don’t break them up too much otherwise you won’t get those crunchy pieces we’re after. Just break them into pieces, don’t crush!
- Give everything a good stir – Before you pour over the chocolate, make sure to give all you fillings a really good stir together to make sure they’re evenly distributed. This will give you a mix of everything in every bite.
- Pack the mixture into the cake pan – The key with making rocky road is to ensure that there are no gaps in the slices and everything is well packed together. If there’s gaps the rocky road will fall apart easily. So when adding to you tin, make sure to press down firmly with the back of a spoon or spatula.
- Allow it to chill for at least 6 hours – I know you’re going to want to get in there sooner, but you want to make sure the rocky road sets firm. So 6 hours or overnight if you can is the perfect setting time.
- Choose budget-friendly ingredients – The beauty of rocky road is anything goes! For example if you can’t get Caramilk then switch out for white chocolate instead – you can pick up store own-brand versions really cheaply. Next time you’re shopping see what’s on the shelves and give them a try.
