Vegan Biscoff Rocky Road Bars

Oh-My-God. These vegan Biscoff rocky road squares are to die for! This vegan Biscoff rocky road is dangerously quick and easy to make—you can be eating it in half an hour (if you’re patient enough to wait for it to set). It only contain five ingredients and you can swap for whatever you have in the cupboard. These ingredients are: chocolate, Biscoff spread, biscuits. salted pretzels, and Rice Krispies.

Chocolate
I used a mix of Bournville and the new NOMO hazelnot chocolate bar which gave a really lovely milk chocolate flavor. The bits from the hazelnot bar also added some extra flavor and texture to your rocky road. If you want it to be a bit less sweet, then go for all dark. Just choose your favorite chocolate. I think white chocolate might be a bit too sweet, but it also could be incredible!

Biscuits
For the biscuits, I used Ginger Nuts because they are cheap and easy to find. Most Ginger Nuts are vegan and the packet I picked up from ASDA was only about 30p. I love the crunch and spicy flavor that comes from Ginger biscuits. You could also use Digestives for a more classic flavor. I also think Oreos would be amazing in this. You could even use Biscoff biscuits for a double Biscoff hit.

Pretzels
I need to talk to you about chocolate and salted pretzels. It is THE BEST thing. The salt and the crunch from the pretzel with their slightly sweet glaze with the smooth, rich chocolate: It is a match made in heaven. When I buy pretzels it is usually to cover them in chocolate. For a quick nibble just drizzle some pretzels in chocolate, they are so moreish.

Rice Krispies
Rice Krispie treats are such a classic. I love the light crunch they have. I wanted to incorporate them in this rocky road to give a different texture and to lighten it up a bit. They stop this vegan Biscoff rocky road from being too dense and cloying. Some Rice Krispies aren’t vegan-friendly so be sure to check the packet.

Biscoff Last, but certainly not least, we have Lotus Biscoff Spread. It has become such a widely loved product. There is now a Biscoff version of almost every classic bake. The Biscoff is mixed with the melted chocolate to stop it from setting too hard. Usually, golden syrup is added to keep the chocolate soft and smooth. This not only makes it easier to cut but also so much easier to bite into. I have also added a drizzle on the top for decoration, but this is totally optional.
