Rocky Road Flavour Hot Chocolate
Out of stock
The name Rocky Road harks back to the gold fields of Australia, where prospectors crunched through chocolate, biscuit and marshmallows as they sieved for their fortune. Gold rush soon became sugar rush as the recipe went global – it's since become a pure slice of Americana, appearing as an ice cream, cupcakes and... pizza. We'll stick to our famous hot chocolate, thanks.
This Whittard all-time favourite combines classic flavours of marshmallow and milk chocolate with those of toffee, cherry, raisins and sultanas. A British twist which takes the road less travelled...

Recipe: Rocky Road Biscuits
140g plain flour
50g self-raising flour 40g Whittard Rocky Road hot chocolate powder
60g granulated sugar
80g finely chopped glacé cherries
62g unsalted butter cut into cubes, softened
62g golden syrup
Half a large egg, lightly beaten
Melted chocolate or royal icing to decorate
Preheat the oven to 170°C (150-160°C fan).
Sift the flours and Rocky Road hot chocolate powder into a large bowl.
Stir in the sugar, then add the cherries and mix until fully coated.
Rub the butter lightly into the dry mixture with your fingertips until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the egg and golden syrup, stirring to combine. Once the mixture starts to come together, use your hand to knead the mixture into a soft dough.
Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment to a thickness of about 5mm. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
Once the dough is firm, cut it into heart shapes. Carefully lift the hearts from the parchment – you may need to use a palette knife – and place on a lined baking tray. Using a sharp knife, cut a small rectangle from the pointed end of each heart: this will let you slot the biscuit onto the rim of your mug or glass.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until just beginning to darken.
Let the biscuits harden slightly on the baking tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. When the biscuits are cool, decorate them to your heart’s content. (See what we did there?)
