These easy, no-bake, Gluten Free Mini Egg Rocky Roads are the perfect Easter treat and a great kitchen activity for kids! Easter rocky roads packed with Cadbury’s Mini Eggs, gluten free shortbread and mini marshmallows.

You simply cannot beat a gluten free rocky road – and making this Mini Eggs Easter rocky road recipe just takes the original to a whole new level.

Plus the whole thing can be made in less than 10 minutes!

Rocky Road is an easy, no-bake recipe, combining biscuit chunks and mini marshmallows in melted chocolate and then chilling.

After creating my gluten free rocky road recipe, I decided it needed an Easter version – and of course that had to include Mini Eggs!

I combined these with my favourite pink and white mini marshmallows and chunks of gluten free shortbread for the perfect Easter treat.

This recipe is so quick to make, doesn’t involve turning on the oven at all, and is a great Easter holiday activity to make with kids on a wet day.

Easter egg rocky road ingredients

There’s a printable recipe card below but for the shopping list, you’ll need the following ingredients for this Easter rocky road:

  • Milk Chocolate – Always make sure the brand you choose is gluten free and doesn’t have any ‘may contain’ warnings. I tend to use the Dr Oetker baking chocolate as this is gluten free, but any brand that is GF will work.
  • Butter – Unsalted butter is my go-to in this recipe. Adding it to the melted chocolate helps to soften it a little, so it’s not rock hard when you bite into it!
  • Golden Syrup – Because you can never have too much sugar at Easter, right? This is added to the melted chocolate for both taste and texture.
  • Mini Marshmallows – I love using the mini pink and white marshmallows as the colours work so well with the Mini Eggs. Always double check for ‘may contain’ warnings in products like these.
  • Gluten Free Shortbread – Traditionally a gluten free rocky road would contain digestive biscuits. You can use these if you prefer but I love the chunkiness and texture that gluten free shortbread adds. I used the Sainsbury’s free from ones.
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs – Of course you need mini chocolate eggs for a Mini Egg Rocky Road! Cadbury’s Mini Eggs are gluten free and readily available – and my favourite. However you can use any Easter eggs that are gluten free. Galaxy Enchanted Eggs, Mini Creme Eggs and the Terry’s Chocolate Orange Mini Eggs would all work well!

Mini Eggs Rocky Roads FAQs

The full recipe card for my Mini Egg Rocky Roads is below but in case you have any burning questions, let me help…

Are Mini Egg Rocky Roads gluten free?

Usually rocky roads are made with biscuits, which means they are not safe for people with coeliac disease.

However, my Mini Egg Rocky Roads contain gluten free shortbread and are 100% gluten free and coeliac-safe.

So there’s no need to worry when enjoying some Easter treats!

Are Cadbury’s Mini Eggs gluten free?

Yes! Cadbury’s Mini Eggs are gluten free and do not have any ‘may contain’ warnings.

All of the different bags sizes are safe for people with coeliac disease to consume.

Which is why I love making gluten free treats using them, such as my gluten free Mini Egg Cookies, these pretty Mini Egg Cupcakes and even Mini Egg Fudge!

I go into this in more depth in my gluten free Easter eggs guide – please note this information all relates to the UK.

The only Mini Egg product (as far as I know) which is NOT gluten free is the Mini Eggs Bar, which has a ‘may contain’ wheat warning.

Which milk chocolate is gluten free?

I get asked a lot about chocolate which is safe to use in my bakes so here are a couple of gluten free options to get you started:

  • Dr Oetker Milk Chocolate bars (in the baking aisle)
  • Green & Blacks Milk Chocolate bars
  • Galaxy Smooth Milk Chocolate

Obviously this list is by no means exclusive and recipes do change so please always double check before buying.

Are these Easter rocky roads dairy free?

Unfortunately as the recipe relies on Cadbury’s Mini Eggs, which contain dairy, this recipe as it stands is not dairy free or vegan.

To make it dairy free, you’d need to use a dairy free mini chocolate egg, and replace the milk chocolate and butter for vegan substitutes.

How do I store these Mini Eggs Rocky Roads?

Once you’ve chilled your rocky roads, simple keep them in the fridge in a sealed container.

They will easily keep for a week or two – and you can freeze any leftovers as well.

Simply freeze the squares between pieces of baking paper so they don’t stick together and defrost as needed.

Mini Egg Rocky Road (Gluten Free)

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chilling Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 40 minutes

These easy Mini Egg Rocky Roads are the perfect gluten free Easter treat! A no-bake recipe and great for making with kids - customise them with your favourite mini gluten free Easter eggs if you like!


  • 300g milk chocolate
  • 150g butter
  • 45g golden syrup
  • 100g mini marshmallows
  • 200g gluten free shortbread
  • 200g Cadbury's Mini Eggs


  1. Add the gluten free shortbread to a sealable sandwich bag and gently bash with a rolling pin - you want there to be a combination of everything from biscuit dust to lumps around the size of a 20p piece.
  2. Add the chocolate, butter and the golden syrup to a large saucepan and place on a very low heat. Stirring constantly, heat until completely melted and there are no lumps of chocolate. Remove from the heat.
  3. Add the crushed biscuits, the Mini Eggs (but reserve a handful for the top) and mini marshmallows to the chocolate mix and stir well until completely mixed. Pour the mixture into a lined 8-inch square baking tin and push firmly down.
  4. Sprinkle with the remaining Mini Eggs then refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours. Cut into 16 squares andf then store in the fridge - this will last up to one week.


  • For a different Easter Egg twist, you could also add any of your favourite gluten free Easter eggs, including Galaxy Enchanted Eggs or mini Creme Eggs.
