How brilliant is Easter! Seriously, any holiday that makes it acceptable to eat chocolate for an entire day, is totally ok by me. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been dragging the whole eating Easter eggs thing out for weeks (coughs.. months) now. What on earth is it that makes Easter chocolate taste so good? Sorry, I’m getting sidetracked!

Tips & tricks for making rocky road

  1. The trick to a really good rocky road is to make sure you use plenty of melted chocolate. I love to pack my rocky road full of yummy add-ins, but if you don’t have the right chocolate-to-yummy-goodies ratio going on, it kinda all falls apart in one big mess! This rocky road has the perfect balance of delicious little bits and pieces and melted chocolate. OMG it’s good.
  2. Use a good quality chocolate for melting. The melted chocolate is the main ingredient, so choose a really yummy brand! 
  3. Work quickly! The chocolate will begin to set quickly, so make sure your baking tin is prepared before you start!

What kind of Easter eggs can I use in rocky road? Can I make some substitutions?

This recipe is SUCH a great way to use up any leftover Easter eggs you have lying around. And yes, absolutely, you can substitute any of the recommended Easter eggs for your own favourites.

In this version I used crispy M&M speckled eggs, but you could easily replace these with normal M&Ms or anything you like!

Same goes with the Cadbury creme eggs – if you’re not a fan, simply swap them for caramel filled eggs, Turkish Delight eggs or any other filled egg you like!

Just make sure you use mini eggs, as the larger ones will get all runny and gooey.
*On that note, if you live somewhere hot, then you might want to pop your filled eggs into the fridge prior to making the rocky road. This will make sure they don’t melt when you mix them through the chocolate.

I also used marshmallow Easter eggs, but if you want to save a little bit of money, plain marshmallows will work beautifully too.
