About our Rocky Road recipe

This rocky road recipe is one of our most popular recipes on Baking Mad! After all, who doesn't love a slice of Rocky Road?

Fluffy marshmallows, crunchy nuts, and chunks of biscuits coated in melted chocolate it's as simple as that. This easy rocky road recipe is great fun to make with all the family and the best bit is you can personalise your cake by mixing and matching the ingredients with your favourite sweets and biscuits.

What is the difference between Tiffin and rocky road?

The difference between rocky road and tiffin recipes is typically down to how the chocolate mixture binds together. Some tiffin recipes use condensed milk and cocoa powder to hold it all together and then add chocolate on top. Whereas, Rocky road is typically made using melted chocolate and syrup to hold it all together. We prefer this way, so our tiffin is made in a similar way.
