Need a pick-me-up for the holidays? Jen’s Rocky Road recipe may be the answer! It is a no-bake treat that Jen’s children and their cousins made this week. The joy is how adaptable the recipe is to what you have in the cupboards so feel free to substitute the ingredients according to what’s available and your family’s diet.


  • 450g dark chocolate, dairy-free if necessary
  • 100g nut butter / seed butter / dairy-free butter of your choice
  • 140g biscuits, gluten-free if necessary (we used Ginger Nuts)
  • 45g mini marshmallows (or big ones cut up – this is easier with kitchen scissors!)
  • 100g dried fruit, nuts (we used mixed peel)


1. Line a tray of 20x30cm with baking parchment.

2. To melt the chocolate put the chocolate and butter of your choice in a bowl. Rest the bowl on a pan of boiling water. Don’t let the bottom of the bowl touch the water. The steam from the boiling water will melt the chocolate.

3. Break up the biscuits using your hand – you don’t want it too fine as the biscuit bits will give the end result its crunch.

4. Once the chocolate has cooled slightly, stir in the biscuits and remaining ingredients until everything is evenly coated in chocolate.

5. Press into the lined baking tray and pop into the fridge until firm (about 3 hours).

6. Cut into individual portions before serving.


**Always check the ingredients of any food you’re cooking with to make sure it doesn’t contain something you or your child should avoid.

  • Italian White Bean Soup with Rosemary

    Jen often has this soup for lunch on a Saturday. It’s quick and nutritious and sets the family up for an afternoon of fun! It’s also really adaptable – so if there are a few vegetables in the bottom of the fridge that need eating up, add those too.

  • Stephanie’s pasta with sausage sauce

    This recipe from Sarah’s mother has become a favourite in The Allergy Team’s households! 


    This is a great recipe to have up your sleeve for those days when you are not sure what to make but know you need to have something on the table quickly!

  • Chocolate-coated strawberries

    To our mind, nothing beats a handmade gift and these are perfect for little hands (with some help) to make as a Valentine’s Day treat or, frankly, any day of the year.

  • Sesame free hummus

    It’s easy to leave sesame (in the form of tahini) out of hummus and still have a really delicious, easy dip. This is one of our favourites!

  • Baked jacket potatoes

    Not so much of a recipe as a reminder not to forget about the humble British spud when you are planning what to feed your family. Potatoes are so versatile, packed with vitamin C and fibre and relatively inexpensive. They’re a great alternative to gluten-free pasta and rice.
