chocolate rocky road Christmas pudding

A no-bake chocolate rocky road Christmas pudding – a fun alternative for those who want something chocolatey for Christmas! 


For the Rocky Road

  • 125 g golden syrup
  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 200 g milk chocolate
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 100 g mini marshmallows
  • 150 g digestives
  • 150 g amaretti biscuits
  • 100 g glacé cherries
  • 100 g raisins


  • 100 g white chocolate
  • 75 g unsalted butter
  • 150 g icing sugar
  • Green food colouring
  • Red M&Ms


  • Line a bowl of your choice with clingfilm – you want to make sure it’s all covered to it’s easy to get out! I use a small/medium metal bowl as it’s the perfect size/shape!
  • Chop your chocolate up finely and leave to the side.
  • Chop your digestives/amaretti up into a bowl, and add the marshmallows, raisins, cherries.. whatever you fancy using!
  • In a pan, add your butter and syrup and melt until the butter has melted fully – take the pan off the heat and add in the chocolate.
  • The heat of the butter/syrup should melt the chocolate so it should be fine as it’s finely chopped – but if you find you have lumps of chocolate left then put the pan back on the heat briefly to melt the mixture fully!
  • Pour the chocolate mix into the bowl of goodies and mix well.
  • Pour into the lined bowl, and press down and set in the fridge until solid – I say it takes a few hours really, but check as you go! You can always leave it overnight to set!
  • Once the ‘pudding’ has set, decorate!
  • Melted the white chocolate and pour it onto the pudding for the topping, and let it do its thing.
  • Cream together the unsalted butter and icing sugar until smooth – add the green food colouring to get to your desired green colour of holly!
  • Pipe the buttercream onto the pudding to mimic holly.
  • I added on some red M&Ms for the berries, and left it to set.


  • This beauty is just a glorifed traybake in a bowl – but I love it!
  • It will last for one week or so – and I kept it at room temperature!
  • If you want to use all milk chocolate , I would use 500g. 
  • If you want to use all dark, still use 400g. 
  • I recommend using these products for this bake:
    • Edible glitter
    • Green food colouring
    • Leaf piping tip
