Apparently Her Majesty The Queen’s favourite sweet treat was chocolate biscuit cake which she enjoyed most days with a cup of tea in the afternoon.
So I reckon this Chocolate Crunchie Rocky Road recipe would maybe even have been royally approved and is a pretty good option if you’re looking for a bit of easy baking this week.
The most chocolatey indulgent crunchie rocky roads and these are super easy to make. A great one to make with any kiddies too! Jill Stewart (@jillbakes_)

275g good quality milk chocolate
100g dark chocolate
125g unsalted butter
125g golden syrup
Pinch of salt
100g mini marshmallows
150g digestive biscuits, chopped (in fairly big pieces)
8 Crunchies (multipack size), chopped
Line an 8 or 9 inch square tin with baking paper.
Add the milk and dark chocolate, unsalted butter, golden syrup and salt into a large bowl. Set the bowl over a pan filled with a little boiling water on a simmer and melt - stir continually so it doesn’t burn!
Remove the bowl from the heat before the chocolate has fully melted and let it continue to melt. (If the mixture gets too hot it can split - if this happens add a splash of milk and whisk until it combines!)
Add in the mini marshmallows, digestive biscuits and chopped crunchies - leave some aside to decorate.
Stir well to combine. Transfer the mixture to the lined baking tin. Sprinkle the remaining crunchie over the top.
Chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours and cut into 16 squares using a sharp knife, then enjoy!
