Christmas Leftover Rocky Road recipe....

Sometimes it’s easy to go overboard with buying sweets and chocolate in the run up to Christmas....We always have loads left. This is a great recipe for using up all those Christmas leftovers including broken biscuits, Christmas pudding, Christmas cake and the selection box chocolates that nobody wants!!


250g leftover Christmas pudding or Christmas cake
250g milk chocolate
225g digestive biscuits
100g glacé cherries
100g butter
150g mini marshmallows
4 tbsp golden syrup
Icing sugar


1. Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper.

2. First crumble or chop the Christmas pudding or Christmas cake into small pieces and place in a large mixing bowl.

3. Next, break the digestive biscuits into pieces making sure not to crush them completely and place in the mixing bowl.

4. Chop the glace cherries into quarters and add to the cake and biscuit mixture along with the mini marshmallows.

5. Place the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a large heatproof bowl and melt slowly over a pan of boiling water ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water. 

6. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the cake mixture and stir thoroughly until everything is coated in chocolate.

7. Next, pour into the baking tin and leave to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until completely solid.

8. Finally, dust the rocky road with icing sugar for a festive touch, cut into squares and enjoy!

  1. This is a great idea, I never thought about making something with it all, we usually give it away or end up with it in the cupboards for months. Now I'll be making it for the girls to take to school in their lunch!
