Rocky road crunch bars

No one is ever going to complain about having one of these in their lunchbox, and they're pretty handy to have around in a kitchen for a quick, snatched burst of energy at any time.


  • 125 soft unsalted butter

  • 300 g best quality Dark Chocolate broken into pieces

  • 3 tablespoons Golden Syrup

  • 200 g rich tea biscuits

  • 100 g mini Marshmallows

  • 2 teaspoons icing sugar to dust


  • 1.

    Heat the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a heavy-based saucepan over a gentle heat. Remove from the heat, scoop out about 125ml/4½fl oz of the melted mixture and set aside in a bowl.

  • 2.

    Place the biscuits into a plastic freezer bag and crush them with a rolling pin until some have turned to crumbs but there are still pieces of biscuit remaining.

  • 3.

    Fold the biscuit pieces and crumbs into the melted chocolate mixture in the saucepan, then add the marshmallows.

  • 4.

    Tip the mixture into a 24cm/9in square baking tin and smooth the top with a wet spatula.

  • 5.

    Pour over the reserved 125ml/4½fl oz of the melted chocolate mixture and smooth the top with a wet spatula.

  • 6.

    Refrigerate for about two hours or overnight.

  • 7.

    To serve, cut into 24 fingers and dust with icing sugar.
