Chocolate Tiffin is an easy ‘no bake’ treat that anyone can make.
There are some days that even I can’t be bothered to bake. And last Sunday was one of these days. We had a great day on the Saturday at a friends wedding and on the Sunday I just couldn’t face getting in the kitchen and baking (and I wasn’t even hung over!!). But we were heading to mums for Sunday lunch and I wanted to take something.
Chocolate Tiffin (or Fridge Cake) is perfect for this. No baking required – just melt some chocolate, mix everything together and shove it in the fridge. What could be simpler?!
And there are so many different varieties that you can make. You can literally put anything in it. The more traditional has cherries, raisins and digestive biscuits. But you could add nuts (pecans, pistachios etc), various dried fruits (raisins, cherries, apricots etc), chocolate bars (maltesers, M&M’s etc) and you could even try adding popping candy for a bit of fun!
These flavour combinations sound interesting – I think I will have to try them (for research purposes only!!!) and post how they tasted…….Ameretto and Apricot , Pistachio and Pear, Cranberry and Orange, Coffee and Hazelnut
For these, I chose to add crushed up pieces of Crunchie, Digestive biscuits and chocolate covered raisins.
- 250g digestive biscuits
- 150g milk chocolate
- 150g dark chocolate
- 100g unsalted butter
- 150g golden syrup
- 5 Crunchie bars – crushed into pieces
- 75g raisins
- (Plus 200g milk chocolate – optional topping)
- Use cling film to line a 20cm (8in) shallow, square-shaped tin. Leave extra cling film hanging over the sides
- Bash the biscuits into pieces using a rolling pin. (Put them in a plastic bag first so they don’t go everywhere!)
- Melt chocolate, butter and golden syrup
- stir in the broken biscuits, raisins and Crunchie pieces
- Spoon the mixture into the tin. Level the surface by pressing it down with a potato masher. (I then melted 200g milk chocolate and poured it over the top to create a chocolate layer)
- Leave to cool, then put the chocolate mixture in the fridge for 1-2 hours to set.
- Turn out the cake and peel off the cling film. Cut the cake into 12 squares and enjoy!
Everybody loves this simple treat and people will request it time after time – especially if you get a great flavour combination!!
