Easy Vegan Rocky Road

I would make Rocky Road all the time as a non-vegan, but turning vegan meant I couldn't use the same ingredients I was used to so it slipped to the end of my baking list and I focused more on mastering vegan cakes. Recently I decided enough was enough, and brainstormed what I could put into a vegan rocky road. 

Easy Vegan Rocky Road

My original rocky road recipe features some non-vegan ingredients, such as Twix Bars and mini marshmallows (which are made using gelatin, a not very nice ingredient at all 😞). I know you can get vegan marshmallows, however I didn't have a store nearby that sold them and to be honest they can be very expensive so I focused on ingredients that were easily accessible and cheap!

It was actually pretty easy to vegan-ize (the technical term) this recipe, as I just used dairy-free butter instead of dairy butter, as I already used dark chocolate, golden syrup and rich tea biscuits which are all suitable for vegans! Be sure to check the ingredients of course, but most rich tea biscuits are accidentally vegan 😎I then had a browse around Tesco and found a packet of Jelly Tots, which are another accidentally vegan treat as they are made without gelatin - win! I also opted for these Fox's Mini Cookies, to replace the Twix biscuits I used to use.

You could use any variation of ingredients that you wish to, these are just my personal choices and what I had easily available! There are plenty of vegan options out there now, and if you are a fan of fruit in your rocky road then another good ingredient to add is glacé cherries, a normal ingredient in rocky road, I'm just not that big a fan of cherries!

I made this rocky road on a super sunny day, we had a mini heatwave in the middle of April here in the UK which was quite a treat although my silly self got a little sunburnt 😅I've been really enjoying iced lattes in this warmer weather, so if you fancy it I'll put up a recipe for a super simple recipe for a vegan iced latte!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, if you do try it please feel free to tag me in your photos or use #susiechef so I can see!
