Rocky Road Recipe {Baking with Choc Nibbles}

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

The whole family love any excuse to bake and when Choc Nibbles got in touch to introduce us to their range of retro sweets we thought it would be a good opportunity to bake some treats! We’d never tried Choc Nibbles before and were excited to see what they were like – and how good they were to bake with.

Choc Nibbles

Choc Nibbles come in a wide range of flavours – original Choc Nibbles, toffee, mint, orange and jammie as well as having Choc Lick – a yummy chocolate powder. We’d never tried Chocolate Nibbles before but tried them straight away – all the flavours are lovely, a really moreish treat for any occasion.

Choc Nibbles are pretty tasty and are great just to eat, sprinkled over ice cream or used in baking. The list of possibilities are endless! If you want to know more about Choc Nibbles, you can find more info and Chocolate Nibbles ingredients here.

Making Rocky Road with Choc Nibbles

We decided to use a couple of the products to bake one of my favourite things – an easy Rocky Road as it’s what dreams are made of! We already made Choc Nibbles Cookies previously too. We included Toffee Choc Nibbles and Chocolate Lick but really you could use any flavour Chocolate Nibbles depending on your mood – Rocky Road is a firm favourite whatever you include in it and we’ll be trying Mint Chocolate Nibbles next time!

The sweet chocolate chips are just the best type of rocky road candy to use. You could also try including sweets, nuts, peanut butter of even dried fruit to add some texture to the home made rocky road candy recipes.

The Choc Nibbles Poundland range is fantastic and, as you can imagine, really good value too. If you’re looking for more of a bulk option then the bags of Chocolate Nibbles Costco options are definitely ones to try.

If you’re looking for other recipes to try here’s our Creme Egg Rocky Road, Mini Egg Rocky Road and Peppermint Candy Cane Bark. You can see all our recipes to date here.

What equipment do you need to make rocky road?

    1. I would just eat mine as an easter treat but try to use them before hand for putting them in cookies!

  1. Your Rocky Road looks lush, I’m not sure what I’d make until I try them but maybe they could work with a cheesecake base or topping

  2. I’d make an easter nest, I think the texture would be perfect – and then I’d fill it with mini eggs

  3. I think it would be fun to make some Easter eggs, but I’d probably just use them to decorate a cake or cupcakes.

  4. On ice-cream or even in a hot chocolate, but would bake some cookies for our next-door neighbour who is always happy to lend a hand (with anything – and saved me a fortune on computer repairs) but will NOT accept payment, unless it’s biscuits/pies we have baked (and ONLY when we’ve baked them).

  5. I love choc nibbles on their own but sprinkled over vanilla ice cream with raspberry sauce they’re even nicer.

  6. would love to be able to share these with all the family when they come home for Easter for a family gathering

  7. I don’t think I’ve ever tried these but I would make your rocky road which looks fab and maybe try them in some kind of Easter cake creation

  8. I would use them to feed to my wife when she says “I could do with a snack babe” when we are watching TV! lol

  9. Anyway I could get them! haha, loved choc nibbs as a kid, been years since I’ve had them. Used to like them mixed into angel delight.

  10. wow, i used to buy these in the shop after school. if i didn’t eat them all as they are, i’d make an easter cake with them

  11. I think I would make Rice Crispy chocolate cakes, but inspired by your gorgeous Rocky Road ones I would add marshmallows, glace cherries and Golden Syrup – yummy 🙂

  12. Could I just eat them?!!!! I would also pop them on top of fairy cakes to make them really special!

  13. Think we would have to try them in cookies and brownies 🙂 although knowing my lot i’m sure they’d eat most of them before we got that far x

  14. i would get creative with my daughter and bake something delicious! then eat what ever is left!

  15. I’d be tempted to eat them straight out of the bag!! But I’m thinking they’d go great in a really luxurious hot chocolate….YUM!

  16. I would just let my four kids go mad and decorate all their little fairy cakes and biscuits with them, they look deeee-LUMPTIOUS!!! 🙂

  17. That Rocky Road recipe looks very tempting but the family loves banana cake with chocolate icing so I think I’d sprinkle them over one of those.

  18. In my house they would be eaten before I got chance to make anything with them so I guess the only thing that would be made is a chocolate mess all over my kids faces (and maybe mine)

  19. I would just eat them as they are, they are so yummy and my favourite chocolate, wouldn’t want to put them in anything else

  20. wow great giveaway these little beauties would go into homemade biscuits buns and little nibble treats , they look so good

  21. I would love to try them with my own recipe traybake that my children absolutely adore and constantly demand I make!

  22. Would put on top of a cake i would make to decorate it in shape of maybe a couple of nests if theres enough them add a few small eggs in it
