Sweetie Treaty: How to make Chocolate Tiffin

Chocolate tiffin is a delicious if somewhat indulgent tasty treat. It is super easy to make and you can pretty much include whatever you like. This is how I like to make it.

You will need:

A swiss roll size tin lined with baking parchment (Because I'm such a classy lady, I use a loaf tin from poundland)
8oz chocolate (I use dark chocolate but you can use milk chocolate or a mixture of the two)
8oz Rich Tea biscuits
4oz butter
2 tbls golden syrup
2tbls sugar
4tsp cocoa
Handful of raisins/glace cherries/whatever else you fancy.

Melt the butter, sugar, golden syrup and cocoa in a pan before adding the raisins. Then crush the biscuits and add to the melted mixture (wrap the biscuits in a clean tea towel and then bash with a rolling pin to crush them).

Pour mixture into a swiss roll size tin and press down.

Melt the chocolate and pour over the mixture. Be careful not to get any water in the chocolate or it will be horrible!

Put into the fridge and leave to set for about an hour, then cut into pieces and enjoy with a nice cup of tea. Unfortunately I was too busy eating to take a photo of the finished version, but it basically looks like chocolate filled yummy pieces.

I recommend sharing this with your family and friends or you could end up seriously fat. Enjoy!
