  • 120 g digestive biscuits - 8 biscuits

  • 15 g cocoa - 1 heaped tbsp
  • 120 g chocolate - mix of milk & plain

  • Put the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan and heat gently, to melt the butter and chocolate. Mix well to combine everything. If you prefer, heat gently in the microwave in short bursts.
    50 g butter, 25 g golden syrup, 15 g cocoa, 120 g chocolate
  • Add the biscuit crumbs to the chocolate mixture and mix well to coat and combine.
  • Put the chocolate tiffin mixture into a prepared, lined square baking tin. Spread out evenly, working the mixture into the corners, and pressing it down well.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least two hours or overnight.
  • Lift the tiffin out of the tray with the lining paper. Cut into 16 squares with a sharp, heavy knife.


Keeps in an airtight tin for up to a week. In hotter weather, keep in a sealed container in the fridge to avoid a gooey mess. Let your chocolate tiffin come up to room temperature before serving.
