Tiffin! This is one of the easiest yet yummiest treats I have made. There’s no oven involved so this is perfect for even the most amateur of chefs. If you have kids, they will definitely love this recipe too – especially cleaning out the bowl at the end!

I found this recipe from netmums.com – the recipe can be found here http://www.netmums.com/recipes/tiffin. I’ve made a couple of adjustments – slightly less golden syrup and raisins and the addition of dark chocolate – as I felt they tasted slightly better this way. Hope you enjoy!


  • 100g butter, softened
  • 25g soft brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 225g digestive biscuits
  • 120g raisins
  • 225g cooking chocolate (50% milk, 50% dark)

Makes 16 squares of tiffin

Processed with VSCO with kk2 preset


  1. Crush the digestive biscuits into crumbs (although not so fine that you get rid of all the lumps!)
  2. Put the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and golden syrup into a large saucepan and melt on a gentle heat until smooth
  3. Add the digestive biscuits and raisins to the saucepan and mix well
  4. Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 20cm square tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon
  5. For the topping, simply break the chocolate into squares, melt in the microwave and pour over the mixture
  6. Chill in the fridge. After about 40-60 minutes, the topping will have just started to set and you can run a fork over the top in lines to give it a textured finished
  7. Once cooled, release from the tin and cut into squares!
