Why make a Biscoff Rocky Road Recipe?

Why make Biscoff Rocky Road? Well, this will be a silly question if you’re a fan of either Biscoff, or Rocky Road! On a trip to Glasgow, we first tried this tasty traybake, and it quickly got added to our must-make list.

Rocky Road is generally made from chocolate, marshmallows, and biscuits. And since we love Biscoff Biscuits, it makes sense to combine the two things!

But if you’ve never had either taste to understand why they work so well together, we hope you take a leap of faith and give this a go.

Rocky Road is a no-bake traybake that leaves each bite full of delicious crunches and tasty soft, chewy moments.

The edition of Biscoff is just a bonus, an extra level of caramelised crunch plus the addition of Biscoff spread, which drives home the fantastic taste combination!

Can you tell we’re fans? Such fans that we haven’t just made Biscoff Rocky Road. We’ve also made fantastic Biscoff Tiffin and a fabulous no-bake Biscoff Cheesecake.

Is Biscoff Rocky Road Scottish?

At this point, we’re going to hold our hands up and say, “Biscoff Rocky Road is not a Scottish recipe”. We first tried it in Scotland, but that’s about it!

Don’t worry; we have you covered if you’re looking for something a little more Scottish. You can find more traditional sweets like Mars Bar Slice, Chocolate Tiffin, or even Petticoat Tails Shortbread.

We know we’re Scottish Scran, focusing on traditional Scottish recipes, but variety is the spice of life, after all! Try Biscoff Rocky Road once; we think we’ll win you over.

The Origin of Biscoff Rocky Road

To understand how Biscoff Rocky Road began life, you have to understand the history of both featured ingredients. Bringing them together seems obvious, but they’ve come a long way to meet each other in our kitchen!

Rocky Road is said to have started life in Australia back in 1853. It was created not by a talented chef or excellent home baker but by business owners looking to sell sweets that had been ruined en route from Europe! The sweet would then be mixed with locally grown nuts and chocolate.

The name comes from the rocky roads this enterprising sweet treat would have to take to get it out to the gold fields where it would be sold.

We love this story; though other American companies have claimed to have invented Rocky Road, but we think we choose to believe this great tale from the Southern Hemisphere!

Biscoff Rocky Road Recipe -  all in a pile

The sweet crunch of a Biscoff Biscuit first began life in Lembeke, Belgium, in 1932. This is 74 years after and 9248 miles from Rocky Road’s first appearance! Lotus Biscoff is family owned and made in its home town to this day.

The wee biscuits look more at home next to coffees across Europe, but we’ve seen it slowly become one of the most popular ingredients in bakeries and cafes here in Scotland, especially since the introduction of the Biscoff Spread!

Why bring the two together as Biscoff Rocky Road?

When you have such a simple recipe, like Rocky Road, it’s always fun to play with it and see how you might adapt it. As we said, we tasted Biscoff Rocky Road on a trip to Glasgow, and we were hooked.

The addition of Biscoff biscuits and spread adds a lightly spiced, caramelised flavour that brings the rocky road alive. It works perfectly with the chewy, crunchy texture and flavour that Rocky Road brings to the table.

Things you’ll need to make Biscoff Rocky Road

  • 8x8inch cake tin (or 9inch for a thinner slice) – we like this one
  • Microwave safe jug or large saucepan
  • Ziplock bag and rolling pin for crushing the biscuits
  • Baking paper for lining the tin
  • Large saucepan
  • Wooden spoon

Ingredients for Biscoff Rocky Road

  • 400g White Chocolate
  • 125g Biscoff Spread
  • 50g Unsalted Butter
  • 125g Marshmallows
  • 250g Biscoff Biscuits – This can be a mixture of the plain and sandwich biscuits.
  • 50g Biscoff Spread to drizzle on the top *optional

Biscoff Biscuits

You can get traditional Lotus Biscoff Biscuits and also Biscoff Sandwich Biscuits. We used a mixture of about 19 plain biscuits and 10 sandwich biscuits to make up the 250g needed for the Rocky Road recipe. Feel free to mix this up in any way that you wish!

White Chocolate

Rocky Road is usually made with Milk Chocolate, but we prefer white chooclate so that the flavour of the Lotus Biscoff comes through more. You can definitely try other types of chocolate however!

Decorating Your Biscoff Rocky Road

We like to go with the simple melted Biscoff Spread drizzled all over our slice, but you can decorate it in any way you like! Push more Biscoff Biscuits into the top before it sets, or just leave it plain.

How to Make Biscoff Rocky Road – Step by Step Method

Grease and line a 20cm/8” square tin with baking paper.

Put the biscuits in a ziplock bag and bang them with a rolling pin until they are large chunks.

Melt the chocolate and butter in a large bowl in the microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring in between.

In a small separate bowl, melt the Biscoff spread for 30 seconds or until it’s runny and then stir into the white chocolate mix

Alternatively, mix it all in a saucepan on a very low heat, taking care not to overdo the white chocolate or it will seize up.

Add the biscuits and marshmallows. If you want the marshmallows to retain their shape fully you can freeze them beforehand, as otherwise they can melt slightly.

Pour into the tin and bang it on the bench to get rid of air holes. You can pat down slightly with a spoon but try not to do so too much as the marshmallows tend to be melty and you’ll spread them over the top.

Put in the fridge to set for 2-3 hours.

Remove from the tin. Melt the remaining Biscoff Spread for 30 seconds or so in the microwave.

Place into a piping bag with a small nozzle or into a ziplock bag and cut a small bit of the corner off, and drizzle it over the top. Alternatively just use a spoon!

Place back into the fridge to set for another 30 minutes or so.

Allow it to come back up to room temperature to slice to avoid cracking too much, and then enjoy!
