You need to be quick with this Rocky Road though as it does not stick around, it lasted less than 4 days in this household!

As I mentioned above, this recipe can be easily adapted. If you are looking for some inspiration on things to adjust, here are some ideas.

Biscuits – If you don’t want to use chocolate digestive, you can switch this out for a number of things. Shortbread, rich tea, digestives, and ginger nuts are other biscuits that work well. Pick what you have or your favourite ones to add to this mixture.

Chocolate – You can switch this out for either dark chocolate or white chocolate. You could always have a mixture of all of them if you would prefer! You could also include some chocolate chips if you want to add a little extra taste even chopped chocolate.

Fruit – Instead of cherries, why not try it with cranberries or raisins? The fruit in this breaks up the rich chocolatey taste and gives a real fruity punch.

Sweet treats – For a different flavour, why not add in some popping candy or jelly beans, this will give it a completely different taste but will be super sweet.

Nuts – There are so many different nuts out there to pick from. If you are unsure what to pick from, why not consider some crunchy almonds, pecans or peanuts? Crunchy nuts will be an additional texture in your tiffin, you could even add some peanut butter for an extra nutty kick.

Spreads – If you are after a completely different taste, why not try adding spreads such as marshmallow fluff or biscoff and almost make a biscoff rocky road? It will bring a caramelised taste to your rocky road, without changing the texture too much.

As you know, we are fans of slow cooker fudge recipes and I have never tried it in rocky road flavour but it is on the list now.

Just remember if you are making fudge, the ingredients you use will need to be added when the fudge is a little cooler otherwise you will end up with soft marshmallows!

Again, like the fudge, you will need to let the mixture cool a little!
