Tiffin is a yummy, chocolatey tray bake made using biscuits, golden syrup and lots of chocolate and is absolutely perfect for winter nights. Or any night for that matter! I spotted the recipe for this deliciously more-ish tiffin on the Sewing Room Secrets blog – although Natalie’s photography skills are much better than my own! I really need to get myself a better camera… (or maybe this is just an excuse to do lots of baking so I can take lots more pictures?!)
The tiffin recipe, as taken from the Sewing Room Secrets blog, is as follows:
- 400g digestive biscuits
- 125g butter
- 75g raisins or sultanas
- 3 tblsp cocoa powder
- 185g of golden syrup
- 150g milk chocolate
- 30g white chocolate
- Break the biscuits into pieces and mix with the raisins.
- In a saucepan, melt the butter, syrup and cocoa powder and pour over the broken biscuits. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
- Spoon the mixture into a tray bake tin and press down well with the back of the wooden spoon.
- Break the milk chocolate into pieces and place into a heatproof bowl. Place the white chocolate into a separate heatproof bowl. Sit the bowls over a pan of barely simmering water (a bain marie) and allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally.
- Spread the milk chocolate evenly over the biscuit base. Drizzle the white chocolate over the top.
- Chill in the fridge until firm before cutting into slices. Enjoy!
