Easter Rocky Road

“Sometimes the road might seem a bit rocky, but don’t give up, there might be some chocolate, cherries and speckled eggs waiting for you!” These are the wise words of Chef Pieter de Jager in the Leopard’s Leap kitchen.

Try this easy recipe for a delightful seasonal interpretation of the popular Rocky Road!

Easter Rocky Road

Makes 24 bars


250 g 70% chocolate

150 g 40% chocolate

180 g butter

4 tablespoons honey

50 g chopped dates

100 g mini marshmallows

150 g mixed nuts, roughly crushed

50 g red glazed cherries

100 g speckled eggs

100 g Bakers Tennis Biscuits, roughly crushed

100 g digestive biscuits, roughly crushed

Icing-sugar to dust


Melt the chocolate, butter and honey over a double boiler.

Place the rest of the ingredients into a deep tray lined with either plastic or tin-foil. Alternatively, place the ingredients inside a silicone bread-tin.

Pour the melted chocolate over the rocky ingredients.

Place in the fridge to set for roughly 1 – 2 hours.

Remove the set chocolate block from the tray and portion into blocks or thick slices.

Dust with icing-sugar and serve.
