My husband isn’t much of a drinker, and he’s never smoked, but he is most definitely a chocoholic, so when I first made tiffin he almost did the snoopy dance. I love this recipe – so long as you have the basic ingredients, you can pretty much throw anything else in there. Great for lunch boxes, keeps for ages in the fridge, and if I have a piece alongside a cup of coffee then absolutely everything suddenly seems to be flippin brilliant.
150g butter (I use salted)
3 tbsp caster sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbsp cocoa powder
large handful raisins
2 large handfuls mini marshmallows
110g ish milk chocolate
110g ish dark chocolate
- Grease and line a 9″ square tin or any tin you wish to use.
- In a saucepan, melt together the butter, sugar, syrup and cocoa powder, giving it an occasional stir, then mix completely.
- Meanwhile, chop / bash up your biscuits. Use any kind you like – I used Nice biscuits because they are indeed nice, and I like the coconutty bits they bring to this sugar party.
- Throw in the biscuits, raisins, marshmallows, or whatever you fancy to the saucepan and mix well until completely coated.
- Tip into the prepared tin and press down well with a spatula.
- Break up both kinds of chocolate into a microwaveable bowl and heat in small bursts until melted.
- Pour over the tiffin mix, tipping the tin to allow it to cover the whole surface.
- Here’s the hard bit. Leave it to chill in the fridge until completely set, preferably overnight.
- Try to only eat one piece at a time. Good luck with that.
