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.
- Biscuits/cookies – I use plain biscuits such as digestives or rich teas, but you could also use ginger nuts, Oreos or Bourbon biscuits.
- Golden Syrup
- Glace cherries – if you can get hold of green glace cherries, they are perfect for that Halloween effect! If you don’t like cherries no worries – just leave them out of the recipe.
- Mini Marshmallows
- Halloween sweets/candy – I used jelly (gummy) worms, skeleton faces, candy eyes and some really cute “wizard” sprinkles I found in Lakeland to decorate my rocky road, but feel free to use whatever Halloween sweets you can find. Anything goes!
- Rocky road is a great no bake recipe to get children involved with – let them get creative with the decoration!
- Rocky road bars need time to set in the fridge – it usually takes a couple of hours at least.
- When you’re melting the chocolate, butter and syrup together, don’t allow the mixture to get too hot. If it looks like it might boil, remove from the heat immediately and leave it for a few minutes. The remaining heat will melt everything down.
Pin this Halloween rocky road for later!
