This Kinder Bueno Rocky Road is a simple and delicious no bake treat packed with Kinder chocolates along with marshmallows and digestives. One piece just isn’t enough!
What is rocky road?
Rocky Road is one of those recipes that is referred to by a few different names. As well as rocky road, I have heard it referred to as tiffin and refrigerator cake. Personally, I think Tiffin is different as it doesn’t typically have marshmallows in it and rocky road does.
But what actually is rocky road? It is a no bake sweet treat from Australia that usually includes marshmallows, biscuits and chocolate.
What is included varies from country to country and person to person. There isn’t really a wrong way to make rocky road!
what is hazelnut white chocolate spread?
Hazelnut white chocolate spread is what is in the middle of Kinder Bueno. Even though I am not the biggest white chocolate fan, I love this spread!
I bought mine from Morrisons and I think this is the only supermarket that sells it here in the UK. I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t taste exactly the same as the middle of a Kinder Bueno; but it is pretty close!
Once it is mixed with the rest of the ingredients in the rocky road, I think anyone would be hard pushed to tell any difference.
Some online stores sell hazelnut white chocolate spread too. A lot of these tend to come in quite large tubs and can be quite expensive. This is fine if you plan on making a lot of recipes using it, but not so great if not.
Black Milk is a popular option you can buy but is a little more expensive than the Morrisons version.
If you would rather not use it, you can just use milk chocolate instead.
which kinder chocolate to use
I use two different Kinder chocolates as well as the hazelnut white chocolate spread for this Kinder Bueno Rocky Road.
The most obvious is Kinder Bueno chocolate bars. What would Kinder Bueno Rocky Road be without Kinder Buenos?!
As well as buenos, I also add Kinder chocolate bars. These are sometimes called Kinder mini bars, but they are the small milk chocolate bars with a milky filling.
Most supermarkets have their own versions of both of these types of Kinder chocolate. You can absolutely use these if you prefer.
how is best to melt the ingredients
I prefer to melt the chocolate, hazelnut white chocolate spread, butter and golden syrup in the microwave. I melt it for short bursts and make sure I stir thoroughly in-between.
Heating the ingredients too much may cause the chocolate to split. To avoid this you should stop just before the chocolate is fully melted. As you continue to stir, it will melt fully without that risk of splitting.
If you think the mixture has split, keep stirring and the ingredients should bring themselves back together with no issues.
If you are worried about melting the ingredients in the microwave, you can use a double boiler. Add some water to a pan and balance a glass bowl with the ingredients over the simmering water.
Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the pan, and stir so the ingredients melt slowly. This method might take a little bit longer, but it is harder to overheat the chocolate this way.
how many pieces does this recipe make?
I tend to cut my rocky road into 20 pieces. These are then usually two to three bites which is a nice size.
You can cut them into as many pieces as you like. If you cut it into smaller pieces it would be great for a party – the perfect bitesize treat.
Rocky road also makes a great gift, especially for Christmas. People love a homemade gift!
how to decorate the rocky road
To decorate this Kinder Bueno Rocky Road, I like to use a few more of the ingredients that are already in the rocky road.
I like the contrast of the hazelnut white chocolate spread across the top of the milk chocolate. I also like to scatter across more Kinder chocolate because you can never have too much!
You really don’t need to weigh these ingredients out, just use as many as your heart tells you to! But you could also add any decorations you like. More marshmallows and sprinkles might be what you prefer.
how long will this rocky road keep for?
This rocky road will easily keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
You can also freeze it with baking paper in between the layers of rocky road to prevent sticking. It will keep in the freezer for up to one month.
