These tiny, speckled chocolate eggs are not only adorable but also add a delightful crunch to every bite of the rocky road. Their vibrant colours make this treat a visually appealing addition to your Easter dessert spread.

Chocolate

If you’re a chocolate lover, you’re in for a treat with this mini egg rocky road recipe.

The rich, indulgent quality of the chocolate is what brings all the ingredients together in perfect harmony. It creates a decadent and irresistible dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth.

You can easily change the chocolate to make it all dark chocolate or all milk chocolate.

When combined with the crunchy mini eggs, the chocolate takes on a whole new level of deliciousness.

Digestives

These simple yet essential biscuits bring a satisfying crunch to each bite. They complement the smooth chocolate and mini eggs perfectly, removing some of the sweet taste.

If you don’t have digestive biscuits you can swap in shortbread biscuits, Biscoff biscuits, ginger nut biscuits or why not try with your favourite biscuit.

Mini Marshmallows

Adding mini marshmallows to this mini egg rocky road takes the sweetness and chewiness to a whole new level.

The pillowy softness of the marshmallows contrasts perfectly with the crunchy biscuits and creamy chocolate, creating a delightful texture that will leave you craving more.

Easter rocky road Top Tips

To ensure your mini egg rocky road turns out perfectly every time, there are a few tips to keep in mind;

Firstly, when melting the chocolate, be sure to do so slowly and gently to avoid burning it. You can use a double boiler or microwave in short bursts, stirring frequently. If you are melting the chocolate over hot water make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water otherwise it can burn the chocolate.

Make sure all your ingredients are fully mixed together before pouring them into your pan to set.

Don’t be afraid to get creative with add-ins like nuts, dried fruit, or even a sprinkle of sea salt for a unique twist on this classic rocky road treat.

I think they are best served as they are. Ready to be eaten as soon as they are set.

Storing / Making ahead of time options

If you have any leftover mini egg rocky road (which may be a rare occurrence given how delicious it is!), you’ll want to store it properly to maintain its freshness and flavour.

The best way to store rocky road is to keep it in an airtight container or resealable bag. This will help prevent the rocky road from drying out or absorbing odours from other foods in your fridge.

If you want to freeze your rocky road for longer storage, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and aluminium foil before placing it in the freezer. The frozen rocky road can last up to 2-3 months, but be sure to allow it to thaw in the refrigerator before serving for the best results.

By following these storage tips, you can enjoy your mini egg rocky road for days or even weeks after your Easter celebration. So go ahead and whip up a batch of this irresistible treat, knowing that you can savour every last bite whenever the craving strikes.
