No Bake Rocky Road Fridge Cake Recipe


I have such a weakness for this rocky road. It’s ridiculously sweet and it’s fairly adaptable and it’s so, so delicious!

Starbucks used to do a rocky road that was like this, and smothered in icing sugar, but they don’t seem to do it anymore. I’ve tried many other rocky roads, but they all use chocolate to make it set, and it’s just not the same as this soft version. Soft does have its down sides, of course, but for the most part it’s worth it!No Bake Rocky Road Fridge Cake

You can adapt this recipe – add candied orange peel or ginger or raisins, whatever you like, really. My favourite combo is marshmallows, biscuits and glace cherries, but try it your own way!

I make this recipe in the Thermomix, but it’ll work in any food processor. Also, if you make a full batch there’s too much for one Thermomix bowl, so you have to split it in half before you do the final mix or pour it out into a bigger bowl and mix by hand.

No Bake Rocky Road Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 50 pieces
  • 400g Nice biscuits or other plain biscuits
  • 200g mini pink and white marshmallows
  • 200g glace cherries
  • 250g butter
  • 500g icing sugar
  • 50 -200g cocoa depending on how dark you like it
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  1. Add the biscuits, marshmallows and glace cherries to the food processor and mix until you achieve the desired size (Thermomix: 5 seconds/speed 4)
  2. Set aside
  3. Add the butter and icing sugar, egg, cocoa and vanilla essence and mix (30 seconds/speed 4)
  4. Depending on the size of your mixing bowl, either empty out the icing sugar mixture into a large bowl, and add the biscuits/marshmallows/cherries
  5. or add the biscuits/marshmallows/cherries to your Thermomix/food processor bowl and slowly combine. (Reverse speed 1/45 seconds, but it will still need a bit of mixing together with a spatula. I prefer just doing it all by spatula to prevent the bits from getting too small!)
  6. Line a large dish (or two) with plastic wrap and spoon the chocolate mixture into it, spreading it out to even it out.
  7. Pop in the fridge and allow the mixture to set for 2-3 hours, then pull it out and peel the plastic off.
  8. Cut the Rocky Road Fridge Cake into squares and store in an airtight container.

    how much cocoa?

      50 – 200g, depending on how dark you like it. I go straight for 200 now, but start with it lighter and taste the batter and see how you go?
