Rolo Rocky Road


I became obsessed with rocky road about 10 years ago on an American exchange. I think we have always had it over here in the UK but it has definitely become more popular in recent years. After trawling through Pinterest for baking ideas I came across a Rolo cake recipe and a recipe for rocky road, and I decided to combine them!

The whole idea of putting rolos into an already delicious chocolatey treat is one I don’t know why I hadn’t considered sooner. Rolos, after all, were a staple part of a child’s diet in the 90’s were they not?


  • 350g milk chocolate
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 120g unsalted butter
  • 120g mini marshmallows
  • 125g golden syrup
  • 220g digestives
  • 348g RolosĀ (3 packs)


  • Grease an 8/9″ baking tin, or line with baking paper.
  • Melt the butter and golden syrup together on a medium heat in a large pan until the mixture is fully combined. Chop the chocolate and add to the pan, stir until smooth.
  • Leave the mixture to cool for a few minutes.
  • Chop up the digestives and add to a large bowl with the mini marshmallows and two thirds of the Rolos.
  • Pour the chocolate mix over the digestives, Rolos and marshmallows and stir together thoroughly.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking tin and make sure the mixture is evenly spread, add the rest of the Rolos to the top of the mixture as decoration.
  • Put the baking tin in the fridge and leave to set before chopping into even squares and tucking in!
