Malteser Rocky Road Xmas Pud

I love rocky road, it has to be one of my all-time favourite non bake tray bakes. It is just so delicious and very hard to resist.  This Malteser Rocky Road Xmas Pud is a little bit special as I have added Malteser chocolates to the recipe . Also, as you can see from the photon Das the name of this treat would suggest, I have shaped the rocky road to resemble a Christmas Pudding.

It is super easy to make. Plus,of course, it is super easy to eat! If you are not a fan of a more traditional fruit laden Christmas Pudding, then maybe this indulgent chocolate version is more to your liking, and could look very striking served on Christmas Day.

Here is how I made my Malteser Rocky Road Xmas Pud

Total time
Rocky road made with Maltesers and glace cherries, shaped and made to look like a Christmas Pudding
Recipe type: desserts
Serves: 15
  • 150g mini marshmallows
  • 100g glace cherries, cut in half
  • 200g maltesers
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 300g milk chocolate
  • 100g white chocolate
  • 1 red skittle/1 glace cherry and two holly leaves for decoration - optional
  1. Grease and line a small pudding basin
  2. Place the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a saucepan and place on a low heat and allow to melt all together, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once melted, remove from the heat and add the Maltesers, marshmallows, and glace cherry halves and stir quickly to ensure they are all coated in the mleted chocolate and butter sauce
  4. Pour into your bowl and place in a fridge over night
  5. Next day, carefully remove your rocky road pudding and place upside down onto a plate
  6. melt the chocolate (I did mine in the microwave on 30 second intervals and took about 2 minutes in total) and stir and then pour over the top of the rocky road
  7. *Note - as the rocky road is cold the white chocolate will start to set a little so work fast!
  8. It does not matter if the white chocolate runs down the sides - it is resembling pouring cream afterall!
  9. Place your skittle sweet/glace cherry on the top in the centre and return to the fridge to set - about an hour
  10. Once set, remove and add some holly leaves to garnish
  11. To serve: cut into slices - a little goes a long way as it is very rich!!

  1. ooh great idea & looking oh so festive. I need to make one of these for the non Christmas pudding fussy eater that we have coming for dinner! x

  2. O. M. G. YOu have cracked it with this recipe. I would love a slice of this right now, who wants to wait for Christmas? Yum

  3. I’ve just made this and I think I may have made a blunder….the marshmallows all melted into then mixture and the maltesers were similar. Think I should’ve waited for then chocolate to cool a bit more but was worried if I didn’t get it all costed whilst still warm then it wouldn’t cover? Hopefully it will look and taste ok?

  4. Made this twice and love it.. Made a couple of tweaks which I think makes it even better. ( my opinion of course )
    Replace the cherries with cranberries and pour milk chocolate over the pudding as well and before the white chocolate.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, a virtual cup of tea and slice of cake awaits you x
