Step 2: Add in the digestives, marshmallows and mini creme eggs. Stir all of these ingredients together.

Step 3: Place this mixture into a dish that is lined with grease proof paper.

Step 4: Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the rocky road mixture.

Step 5: Halve a pack of mini creme eggs and press them into the mixture before placing in the fridge to cool.
