If you have mince pies leftover from Christmas that you’re still trying to get through, why not make something with them instead? This Mince Pie Rocky Road couldn’t be easier to make and is delicious too!

I would eat mince pies all year round if I could but even I get to a point where I have simply had enough of them and fancy something a little different. This Mince Pie Rocky Road is perfect for times just like that.

Mince Pie Rocky Road is a treat that children will love, is great for sharing and perfect to make for any gatherings before or after Christmas. Full of seasonal flavour, it’s something that any mince pie fan will really enjoy.

What mince pies do you use for this festive rocky road recipe?

For this easy Christmas rocky road recipe you can literally use any mince pies you have to hand. They can be the cheapest of mince pies as they are going to be broken into pieces anyway – they don’t have to be anything fancy or expensive.

We also use shortbread for the biscuit part of this rocky road as we always have a lot of shortbread in the house over the festive period and it’s quite a nice festive treat to enjoy throughout December too. But you can use other biscuits if you prefer. Digestive biscuits make a good alternative and they’re what we use in other chocolate rocky road recipes throughout the year.

Other ways you can vary this recipe is to include dried cranberries or other dried fruit instead of the cherries and add anything else that works for the festive season. We love to add nuts sometimes to give an extra crunch. Macadamia nuts are a favourite!
