Mars Roads

27 Jul

Now who can honestly say they don’t like krispie cakes? I don’t believe that anyone can:p these aren’t just ordinary krispie cakes, these are mars bar rocky road krispie cakes!!! They’re a whole different league to your oral rocky roads! When I was younger I used to think these were the best cakes ever, me and my brothers used to make them all the time. As I got older they kind of disappeared until I made rocky roads at work! My word have I missed these crazy cakes, I love refunding a childhood cakes and adding new flavours to them!


10 Mars bars
250g Butter
260g Rice Krispies (1 box)
150g Sultanas
150g Fresh chopped cherries
500g Amaretti biscuits
500g Marshmallows

Estimated time: 120 minutes


Weigh your butter into a heat proof bowl along with your ten mars bars, place this bowl over a pan of boiling water and start to melt them together. This will take quite a long time!


While these are slowly melting together, empty your Rice Krispies into a large bowl with your sultanas.

Chop your cherries in half and then quarters, making it easier to get the pips out. Mix these into the Rice Krispies before crumbling the amaretti biscuits on top. You don’t have to use amaretti biscuits, I just feel it adds another depth of flavour, slightly more sophisticated than your average biscuits :p

Now check your mars bars, by now the butter should have melted and most of the chocolate leaving you with lumpy bits of nougat. Take this off the heat and pour the water away. Scrape the melted chocolatey goodness into the saucepan and place back on to the heat. Make sure you keep stirring this as the nougat will try its hardest to stick to the pan. Doing it this way means that the nougat will melt faster than in the Bain Marie, but is less likely to burn than just using a saucepan from the off!


Once this has all melted in to gooey goodness pour over the Rice Krispies and carefully stir/fold this all together. As soon as its half mixed add the cherries. The moisture from these will help the chocolate coat everything and also help to cool it down enough to stir in marshmallows 🙂

Line two deep trays with grease proof paper before finally mixing the marshmallows through the mix. Now spoon the mix equally ingot he two trays and press/smooth out to the edges. Place these in the fridge until set, depending on the thickness of the rocky roads, this can take from 20 mins to and hour!


Now cut them and get fat!! These are so more ish and everyone will love them, if you let them have any 🙂 I really hope you like these, my family love them and they are a great pick me up when ever you need one 🙂
