Hello and welcome to another addition of my white chocolate addiction! Today I bring you chocolate, I bring you marshmallows, I bring you Oreos – I bring you a creamy, crunchy, oh so sweet treat!
My alternative rocky road is a real crowd pleaser. Don’t get me wrong, I love the traditional combination of milk chocolate and digestive biscuits as much as the next girl, but I wanted to do something a little different.
So, if you’re looking for an easy, no-bake treat to satisfy the white chocolate fans of the world, then this recipe is definitely the way to go. You don’t need to turn the oven on or faff around with lots of equipment – all you need is a few basic ingredients and 10 minutes to throw it all together.
Now, when it comes to the contents of your rocky road, you don’t necessarily have to follow my recipe to the letter. Traditional Rocky road usually includes cherries and nuts too – I’m not a fan personally, but the great thing about this recipe is that you can add and swap ingredients as much as you like.
There are two ways to melt the white chocolate – in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water (aka a bain marie). I would generally recommend the bain marie option for a large quantity white chocolate because it can burn very easily if left in the microwave for too long.
500g white chocolate
150g mini marshmallows
225g Oreo cookies
40g milk chocolate
- Start by lining an 8 x 8 inch baking tin with baking parchment (aka greaseproof paper).
- Fill a medium sized saucepan about an inch full of boiling water and bring to a simmer over a low heat. Break up the white chocolate and add to a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl on top of the saucepan, making sure it isn’t touching the water. Chop the Oreos roughly into quarters.
- When the chocolate is melted, add the chopped Oreos and mini marshmallows and fold together. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread out evenly. Leave to set in the fridge for 4 hours or at room temperature overnight.
- Melt the milk chocolate and pour into a piping bag. Drizzle the chocolate over the rocky road, chop it up into pieces and dig in!
