Malteser Rocky Road Xmas Pud

I love rocky road and I usually make it with ginger biscuits, but I also love Maltesers and with it being the season for gluttony and excess I thought I would make a Maltesers Rocky Road. However, with it being the season to be jolly, fa la la la laaaaa la la la la *ahem* ,  I thought I would make my rocky road resemble a Christmas Pudding.

It is soooo easy and sooooo good and probably a bit calorific but hey it is Christmas afterall! Anyway, here is how I made my Malteser Rocky Road Xmas Pudxmaschocpudbadge

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, maltesers 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!!
