Caitlin: Hey Joe
Caitlin: Yes, I can.
Tiffin is a lil bit of a special one. One of my favourite things about Tiffin is the name, so I’ll try and use the word ‘Tiffin’ as many times as I can in this post.
Tiffin takes 10 mins to make and you don’t even have to bake it. Wow. What more could you need.
- 300g digestive biscuits
- 50g butter
- 200g chocolate – I use one dark, one milk chocolate
- 3 tablespoons golden syrup
- Pinch of salt
Line a baking dish with tinfoil, mine is 27cm by 15cm. Any size will do, the bigger it is the thinner your Tiffin will be.
Use your hands to crush the digestives into a bowl. You want some bigger pieces and some sand consistency. Set this aside.
Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup. I use a microwave, taking it out every 15 seconds ish to give it a mix, this will make sure the chocolate mixture doesn’t burn. You can also use a bain marie (in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water) for this step.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the digestives, add the salt and mix this all together.
Once the biscuits are coated in chocolate, tip this into your lined baking dish. Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture down firmly so that you end up with a compacted slab of tiffin. If you press down with the spoon and move it quickly back and forth over the top of your tiffin, you’ll get a shiny top!
Whack it in the fridge, it will take about 2 hours to set completely. Once your tiffin is set, cut into squares or eat the whole slab in one go.
Have a good Tiffin xxx
