A Delicious and Chocolatey No-Bake Rocky Road Cheesecake with all the Rocky Road goodness inside and out! 

Hello heaven – Rocky Road AND a no-bake chocolate cheesecake?! Literally just like wow. I have obviously done many a cheesecake recipe by now, but after SO many requests, like so so so so SO many requests, I finally did my No-Bake Rocky Road Cheesecake.

For those of you who have never had the delight of tasting a Rocky Road it is basically a mash up of chocolate and  marshmallows, with the addition of anything you like such as biscuit bits, raisins, cherries, other chocolates, and more! It is utterly delightful and heavenly.

It is of course, pretty easy to make as you just melt the chocolate and mix the ingredients in and set it, so I thought I would ramp up the idea and make yet another cheesecake version of it!

I based the idea of what I included in the ‘Rocky Road’ side of things on my Rocky Road recipe which has always been a massive success. It also takes inspiration from my No-Bake S’mores Cheesecake which is very similar in the sense of chocolate & marshmallows & biscuit. Yum!

This cheesecake is super delicious with a simple chocolate cheesecake, with mini marshmallows and glacé cherries running through it on top of a simply delicious buttery biscuit base! SO simple!

As Rocky Roads can vary so much, I went simple, because it’s easy for you guys to still adapt it. The biscuit part of the Rocky Road comes from the base, and then the Chocolate, Cherries and Marshmallows are in the filling! 

This recipe has been updated in September 2019 – The only thing that has changed is that I took the Crunchie out (As it was too similar to my Crunchie Cheesecake) and then added in the Glace Cherries to the mix! 

I also took the decoration up a notch, and added some whipped cream swirls, but these are optional as always! Enjoy this wonderful recipe! x

Ingredients
Biscuit Base
  • 300 g Digestives
  • 150 g Unsalted Butter/Stork (melted)
Cheesecake Filling
  • 250 g Milk Chocolate
  • 500 g Full-Fat Cream Cheese
  • 75 g Icing Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 300 ml Double Cream
  • 75 g Mini Marshmallows
  • 200 g Glacé Cherries (halved)
Decoration
  • 150 ml Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 50 g Milk Chocolate (melted)
  • Glacé Cherries
  • Crushed Biscuits
  • Mini Marshmallows
Instructions
Biscuit Base
  1. Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a small crumb, add the melted butter, and pulse a few times until it is combined well.

  2. Tip into a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin and press down firmly!

Cheesecake Filling
  1. Melt the Chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, stirring gently or microwave in short bursts until fully melted – leave to cool slightly whilst doing the rest.

  2. With an electric mixer (I used my KitchenAid) Whisk the Cream Cheese, Icing sugar and Vanilla until combined.

  3. Add in the melted Chocolate, and whisk till smooth.

  4. Pour in the double cream and whip again until it is starting to thicken a lot like a Mousse does! (I use speed 5-6/10 on my KitchenAid)

  5. Alternatively, you can whip the cream separately and fold everything together.

  6. Add in the Mini Marshmallows, and Glacé Cherries, and fold together.

  7. Pour the Cheesecake Filling onto the Biscuit Base. Set the Cheesecake in the fridge for at least 6 hours, or preferably overnight!

Decoration
  1. Whip together the Double Cream and Icing Sugar until pipeable.

  2. Drizzle your melted Milk Chocolate over the cheesecake.

  3. Pipe on the Whipped Cream, and decorate with the Glacé Cherries, Crushed Biscuits and Mini Marshmallows!

Recipe Notes
  • I recommend using a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin in this recipe!
  • I use Full-Fat Cream cheese because that is how it sets and holds itself – if you use lower fat or fat free stuff it won’t work, and it’ll probably curdle. I also set my cheesecakes in the fridge overnight as it makes it so much easier, and it is much more likely to have finished setting!
  • All of my no-bake cheesecakes can be frozen, but only once they have been set overnight in the fridge – skipping the setting stage will mean it’ll probably go runny or go weird!
  • The Marshmallows and Glacé Cherries are optional inside the cheesecake, but it makes it as Rocky Road-like as possible!
  • This will last for three days in the fridge!

  1. This looks amazing, I have already made your cornflakes rocky road into Christmas pudding shapes and am planning to make this (along with your lemon roulade) for Christmas Day, lovely tasty but easy to follow recipes!! Our family aren’t big cherry fans, can you think of anything to substitute but still give the same lovely effect?

    Thanks a mill!!

  2. I found your site a few weeks ago, and I made Mint Aero cheesecake last weekend.
    It turned out fabulous, and was truly scrumptious. Thank you!
    I’m going to make Rocky Road cheesecake this weekend. Yum!!! Approximately how many glace cherries did you use? And do you cut them in half?

  3. Another lovely cheesecake to drool over. When you said “my cheesecakes can be frozen” this has got me super excited! How? For how long? How long before I can eat it from frozen?

    1. The how long depends on what you use – I only usually say up to a month to be safe, but stuff can realistically be frozen for longer so it’s open to interpretation. And how long before you can eat it it depends on where you are and the weather so again I can’t really say haha – till its thawed!

  4. I’ve loved all your rocky road bakes so far Jane but I think this rocky road cheesecake has topped them all! That topping looks DIVINE!

    1. Definitely, it makes the top look packed full of yummy treats and the mixture of colours makes it so appealing 🙂
