What is Chocolate Tiffin?

Chocolate tiffin is a popular dessert that consists of a crumbly biscuit base mixed with melted chocolate, sugar, syrup, and sometimes dried fruit, nuts or marshmallows. It originated in Scotland or northern England and has since become a beloved sweet treat in many parts of the world.

The history of chocolate tiffin is not well documented, but it is believed to have been created as a way to use up leftover biscuits and cake crumbs. It has evolved over time, with many variations being made with different types of biscuits, chocolate, and additional ingredients such as nuts, dried fruit, and marshmallows.

As a chef, I love making chocolate tiffin because it is a versatile dessert that can be customized to suit any taste. I enjoy experimenting with different types of biscuits and chocolate to create unique flavour combinations. For example, using dark chocolate and adding chopped nuts can give the tiffin a richer, nuttier taste. Alternatively, using milk chocolate and adding dried fruit can create a sweeter, fruitier dessert.

Chocolate tiffin is a delicious and simple dessert that is perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings. Whether you're a seasoned chef or a beginner cook, this recipe is easy to follow and will surely impress your friends and family.

Ingredients for Chocolate Tiffin

  • 5 oz butter (cubed (150g)

  • 3 tbsp caster sugar

  • 3 tbsp golden syrup

  • 6 tsp cocoa powder

  • 10 oz digestive biscuits (300g)

  • 4 oz milk chocolate (120g)

  • 4 oz dark chocolate (120g)

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar

How to make Chocolate Tiffin

1. Begin by buttering a 15-20cm tin and lining it with baking parchment.

2. Melt the butter, sugar, syrup, and cocoa in a large saucepan, then stir in the biscuits.

3. In short 20-second bursts, melt both chocolates in the microwave, stirring frequently. Add half of the chocolate to the saucepan and mix well, reserving the second half.

4. Pour the mixture from the saucepan into the prepared tin, pressing down and smoothing the top with a spoon.

5. Pour the remaining chocolate on top of the mixture and use a palette knife or spoon to ensure that it is completely coated.

6. Place the tin in the refrigerator and leave it to set for around 2 hours or overnight. When set, remove the tin from the fridge and run a kitchen knife under hot water before cutting into squares. Enjoy!

Tips on making Chocolate Tiffin

  • Use high-quality chocolate for the best flavour and texture.

  • If you don't have a microwave, you can melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.

  • You can vary the type of biscuits you use, such as digestives, rich tea, or ginger snaps, to create different flavours and textures.

  • Allow the tiffin to cool and set completely in the fridge for the best results.

  • You can add other ingredients to the recipe, such as chopped nuts, dried fruit, or marshmallows, to create your own unique variations.
