Equipment Needed To Make Biscoff Rocky Road
- 20cmx23cm (8x10in) Rectangular Tin: This tin will be used to shape and set the rocky road mixture. Make sure it’s the correct size for the recipe to ensure proper setting and easy removal of the traybake. You can also use a 20x20cm Square tin.
- Mixing Bowl: A large mixing bowl will be used to combine all the ingredients and create the rocky road mixture. Choose a bowl with enough space to comfortably mix everything together.
- Heatproof Bowl or Saucepan: You’ll need a microwave-proof bowl to melt the white chocolate and Biscoff spread. Make sure it’s microwave-safe or suitable for double boiling. If you are melting the ingredients on the stovetop, you will need a saucepan of a suitable size.
- Spatula or Wooden Spoon: A spatula or wooden spoon will be used to stir and combine the ingredients in the mixing bowl. It’s essential for achieving an even distribution of the chocolate, biscuits, marshmallows, and Smarties.
- Palette Knife or Offset Spatula (optional): A palette knife or offset spatula can be helpful for smoothing the top of the rocky road mixture once it’s in the tin. It ensures a neat and even surface.
- Refrigerator: The rocky road traybake needs to be chilled in the refrigerator to allow it to set properly. Ensure you have enough space in your fridge to accommodate the tin.
- Knife or Bench Scraper: A knife or bench scraper will be used to cut the set rocky road into individual portions. Choose a sharp knife or scraper for clean cuts.
- White Chocolate – The taste of white chocolate goes particularly well with the Biscoff spread so I don’t recommend substituting it for a milk or dark chocolate in this recipe. If you want a milk or dark chocolate rocky road try this Christmas Rocky Road Recipe instead.
- Smooth Lotus Biscoff Spread – The Biscoff flavour is very particular and tastes similar to caramel. It cannot be substituted for other spreads. However, if you want more texture in your rocky road, you could try the crunchy version of the spread.
- Unsalted Butter – For most dessert and sweet recipes, I use unsalted butter. If you need to add any salt to a sweet recipe, you can be more controlled by adding the salt separately. However, in this recipe we do not need the addition of salt.
- Mini Marshmallows – I use the mini variety of marshmallows as you can add them whole, without needing to cut them up. It saves on time and stickiness!
- Lotus Biscoff Biscuits – Lots of traditional rocky road recipes in the UK contain digestive biscuits or similar. This recipe is unique in its flavour, with the addition of crunchy Biscoff biscuits broken into small pieces and mixed throughout the slices. These give the rocky road a crunchy caramel flavoured texture.
- White Chocolate Smarties – Multi-coloured smarties give a nice rainbow finish to your rocky road, adding colour as well as extra crunch and chocolate chunks too.
Additions Variations and Substitutions
- Nuts: Add some crunch and texture by including chopped nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pecans. Mix them in with the other ingredients for extra indulgence.
- Dried Fruits: Enhance the sweetness and chewiness by adding dried fruits such as cranberries, raisins, or chopped dried apricots. They add a delicious contrast to the creamy white chocolate.
- Coconut Flakes: For a tropical twist, sprinkle some coconut flakes over the rocky road mixture before it sets. It adds a lovely flavour and texture.
- Fudge: If you want to add a twist to your rocky road, consider incorporating fudge as a substitute or additional ingredient to the Smarties.
- Sea Salt: Want to add a little enhancement to the overall flavour? Try adding a sprinkle of sea salt into the melted Biscoff spread.
If you choose to add any of the ingredients suggested, slightly reduce the quantities of other ingredients. This ensures there is enough melted chocolate to cover everything.
- Dark or Milk Chocolate: Instead of using white chocolate, you can experiment with dark or milk chocolate to create a different flavour. Both options work well in rocky road recipes and provide a richer taste.
- Cookie Variations: Substitute Lotus Biscoff cookies with other types of cookies or biscuits, such as digestive biscuits, shortbread, Speculoos cookies or Oreos. This variation allows you to customize the flavours to your preference.
- Flavoured Marshmallows: Use flavoured chewy marshmallows like strawberry or vanilla for an extra burst of flavour. These variations can add a delightful twist to the traditional rocky road.
- Smarties: If you can’t find Smarties, you can replace them with M&M’s or any other colourful chocolate-coated candies. The goal is to add a pop of colour and extra sweetness to the rocky road.
- Vegan version: The good news is that you can substitute many of the ingredients in this Rocky road recipe and make it vegan. You can find, vegan marshmallows, vegan butter, vegan white chocolate and even vegan Biscoff cookie butter in most supermarkets. Leave out the Smarties of replace with some other Vegan chocolate if you wish.
Step-By-Step How To Make White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road
Step 1: Prepare the Baking Tin
- Line a 20x23cm (8x10in) baking tin with parchment paper, greased to prevent sticking.
Step 2: Melt and Combine the Ingredients
- In a pan, gently melt the white chocolate over a very low heat, 100g of Lotus Biscoff Smooth Spread, and unsalted butter over low heat. Stir continuously until the mixture is smooth and well blended.
- Allow the melted chocolate mixture to cool slightly, ensuring it is not too hot to melt the marshmallows and affect the colour of the White Chocolate Smarties.
Step 3: Add the Mix-ins
- Roughly break the Lotus Biscoff biscuits into small pieces and set them aside.
- Add the mini marshmallows, broken biscuits, and White Chocolate Smarties to the broken biscuits. Gently stir until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
Step 4: Pour and Compact the Mixture
- Pour the melted white chocolate mix in with the dry ingredients and stir together, ensuring all the dry ingredients are covered.
- Pour the Biscoff mixture into the lined baking tin and use a spatula to spread it evenly.
- Press the mixture down firmly in the tin to compact it and create an even layer.
Step 5: Drizzle and Set
- Heat additional Lotus Biscoff Spread in the microwave at 10-second intervals until it reaches a drizzling consistency. Be careful not to overheat.
- Drizzle the warmed Biscoff spread over the top of the rocky road, creating a decorative pattern.
- Place the tin in the fridge and let it set for at least 1 hour or until firm.
Step 6: Cut and Serve
- Once set, remove the rocky road from the tin and carefully cut it into bars of your desired size. Enjoy the delicious treat!
Yes, you can use regular-sized marshmallows if you prefer. Just keep in mind that you may need to cut them into smaller pieces to ensure they are evenly distributed throughout the rocky road. Larger pieces will prevent the rocky road from compacting and holding together.
It is best to store the rocky road in the refrigerator, especially during warmer weather. The chocolate and other ingredients may soften at room temperature, leading to a messier texture. Refrigeration will help the rocky road maintain its shape and stay fresh.
While Biscoff biscuits provide a unique flavour, you can use other biscuits such as digestive biscuits or graham crackers as a substitute. Choose a biscuit that complements the flavours you enjoy.
Pro Tips and Guidance
- Line the Baking Tin: To easily remove the set rocky road from the tin, line it with greased baking paper. Lightly grease the paper with butter or a neutral-tasting oil. This will prevent sticking and make it easier to lift the bars out.
- Firmly Press the Mixture: When spreading the mixture into the tin, be sure to press it down firmly. This helps to compact the ingredients and ensures the rocky road holds together. Avoid loose or crumbly bars by applying even pressure as you press it down.
- Allow Chocolate to Cool: After melting the chocolate, let it cool slightly before adding the remaining ingredients. If the chocolate is too hot, it can melt the marshmallows and cause the Smarties to lose their colour. Allow it to cool for a few minutes to prevent this from happening.
- Melting the Biscoff Spread: For easier spreading, melt the additional Biscoff spread that will be used for drizzling. Use a microwave-safe bowl and heat it in 10-second intervals, checking the consistency each time. Be cautious not to overheat it, as it can burn. Slowly and carefully heat the spread until it reaches the desired consistency.
- Party Platter: Cut the White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road into bite-sized squares and arrange them on a platter for a delightful addition to any party or gathering. It’s a crowd-pleasing treat that will disappear quickly.
- Afternoon Tea: Serve the White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road alongside a cup of tea or coffee for a delicious and indulgent afternoon treat. The combination of the creamy white chocolate, crunchy biscuits, and colourful marshmallows is the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing break.
- Bake Sales: Need a quick idea for a bake sale? You can have this sliced and ready in no time at all.
- Gift Idea: Package individual squares of the White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road in decorative gift bags or boxes to give as sweet treats for special occasions or as thoughtful gifts. They make lovely presents for birthdays, holidays, or as a thank you gesture.
- Picnic Treat: Pack the White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road squares in a container or wrap them individually for a delicious addition to your picnic basket. They are portable, easy to enjoy, and perfect for outdoor gatherings.
For ease, you can transport it directly in the tin and cut it into bars when you are ready to serve it.
If you plan to serve it during an outdoor party, keep it chilled on hot days until it’s ready to be served, otherwise, it can begin to melt before it can be enjoyed.
Storing White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road
- Airtight Container: Store the White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road in an airtight container at room temperature. This will help keep it fresh and prevent it from drying out. Ensure the container is tightly sealed to maintain the texture and flavours. It will last for approximately 3 days at room temperature.
- Refrigeration: If you live in a warm climate or during hot summer months, it’s recommended to store the Rocky Road in the refrigerator. This will help the chocolate set and keep the ingredients firm. Place the Rocky Road in a covered container or wrap it tightly in cling film before refrigerating. It will last up to a week.
- Freezing: You can also freeze the White Chocolate Biscoff Rocky Road for longer storage. Wrap individual portions or the entire tray tightly in plastic wrap or foil, then place it in a freezer-safe container or bag. It can be stored in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.
- Defrosting: When ready to enjoy the frozen Rocky Road, transfer it to the refrigerator and allow it to thaw overnight. This will help maintain the texture and prevent any condensation. Once thawed, bring it to room temperature before serving.
