Easter Rocky Road

We originally made rocky road in our air fryer oven, making a delicious Malteser traybake rocky road.

It was delicious and OMG I am the biggest chocolate addict going. But it was just based around Maltesers, so what about making a rocky road featuring all your Easter leftovers.

We made it with the usual base ingredients such as biscuits and marshmallows, and then it got good with all the Easter add ins such as mini eggs, crème eggs etc.

We also made it a bit more fun and the chocolate we melted in the air fryer, was an Easter egg.

As well as showing you how to make rocky road in the air fryer, my favourite part of this recipe, is showing you how easy it is to melt chocolate in the air fryer.

Can You Melt Chocolate In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can melt chocolate in the air fryer. Forget a bowl over a pan of hot water on the stove. You simply place chocolate pieces into a container that suits your air fryer (silicone works best) and air fry at a low 120c/250f temperature. It doesn’t take long at all. Then you simply stir your melted chocolate and use it in your rocky road.

Can Rocky Road Be Made In The Air Fryer?

Yes, you can use the air fryer for all your melting, just like you would with a classic rocky road. We recommend adding to the air fryer container the butter, chocolate and golden syrup, then they can be stirred and are ready together.

Does Rocky Road Have Nuts?

We are allergic to nuts, so we don’t use nuts in our rocky road. When we have rocky road in a café, we have never come across nuts in it. But I am sure there are some people out there that made it with nuts for a different theme, just like this rocky road is an easter theme.

Can You Freeze Rocky Road?

Yes, you can freeze rocky road, but seriously who has any left? I certainly don’t! If you do want to freeze the rocky road, I would cut it into squares first. Then leave it to partly freeze (an hour in the freezer) on a tray. Then transfer the rocky road from the tray to the freezer. The reason for this, is it stops all the rocky road from sticking together.

What Are The Ingredients For Rocky Road

What Are The Ingredients For Rocky Road

Melting – The ingredients for this easy easter bake starts with the melting. The ingredients that go into the air fryer together, to melt and mix with the binding ingredients. We used a mixture of butter, chocolate, and golden syrup.

Binding – Then to help to all bind together we added 4 digestive biscuits (In the USA use graham crackers), mini eggs that we had crushed and mini marshmallows.  

Decoration – Then for decoration its totally personal choice. We used more mini eggs, chocolate bunnies, and crème eggs and caramel eggs.

Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?

I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them.

Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested everyday air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10+ years.

How To Make Easter Rocky Road In Air Fryer?

  • Load. Place the butter, chocolate egg pieces, and golden syrup into the air fryer basket in a silicone container. Make sure the butter and chocolate are both in chunks. Then air fry for 5 minutes at 120c/250f or until the chocolate and butter are almost melted. Give it a stir and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • Binding. Next add the binding ingredients to the bowl. Such as the broken biscuits, crushed mini eggs and the marshmallows and mix well with a spatula.
  • Decorate.  Transfer the rocky road mixture back into the silicone container and then decorate with your favourite rocky road extras. You can crush more mini eggs, add easter bunnies, crème eggs, caramel eggs or any other leftovers you have.
  • Chill. Then transfer to the fridge and allow to set for a couple of hours and then slice and tuck in.

And that is how easy easter egg rocky road is to make.

Crème Egg Easter Treats

Crème Egg Easter Treats

If you are using crème eggs to go on top of your rocky road (like we have done) then we recommend that you freeze them partly first. Just give them an hour in the freezer and they will be easier to then slice in half.
