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
- Crush the digestive biscuits into crumbs (although not so fine that you get rid of all the lumps!)
- Put the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and golden syrup into a large saucepan and melt on a gentle heat until smooth
- Add the digestive biscuits and raisins to the saucepan and mix well
- Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 20cm square tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon
- For the topping, simply break the chocolate into squares, melt in the microwave and pour over the mixture
- 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
- Once cooled, release from the tin and cut into squares!
