This Halloween rocky road is very easy to make and perfect for a spooky Halloween themed party or trick or treaters! A no bake chocolate treat filled with chocolate, crushed biscuits, glace cherries, marshmallows and Halloween candy!
I have always been a big fan of Halloween. Horror movies, scary stories and anything creepy is generally my thing. Except for spiders. I hate spiders (visibly shudders at the thought of them!)
When my boys were younger I used to love taking them out trick or treating – or “guising” as we call it in Scotland. I used to look forward to it as much as Christmas.
Now my boys are in their teenage years, they are way too cool to celebrate Halloween with their Mum (and my little man is just a bit too little to appreciate it right now), but that doesn’t mean to say I can’t and won’t join in the festivities by making a few spooky themed treats. I happily admit it, I’m a big kid!
Just like my spooky spider cookies, (yes I know I said I hate spiders but look at how cute those cookies are!) this Halloween rocky road is very quick and easy to put together – it’s ideal if you don’t have much time on your hands.
ingredients you’ll need to make halloween rocky road
(Ingredient amounts and detailed instructions are in the recipe card at the bottom of the post)
Milk or Dark Chocolate – I prefer to use all milk chocolate for this recipe, but you can use half milk/half dark if you like. I’m not sure I’d recommend using all dark – it would probably be a little too rich.
Glace cherries – if you can get hold of green glace cherries, they are perfect for that Halloween effect!
Halloween sweets/candy – I used jelly (gummy) worms, skeleton faces, candy eyes and some cute “wizard” sprinkles I found in Lakeland to decorate my rocky road, but feel free to use whatever Halloween sweets you can find.
If you make this recipe, don’t forget to take a picture and tag me on Instagram or Facebook. I would love to see your spooky creations!
Pin this Halloween rocky road for later!
