Sometimes nothing but a rich, decadent slab of chocolate will do. Although I’m partial to almost any tiffin, I prefer those with really dark chocolate. Here is the recipe I made the other day.
- 300g dark chocolate (I used a mix of 77% and 95% – I would recommend 75% minimum)
- 100g margarine (I use Flora)
- 50g syrup (I use maple if I’m feeling fancy, agave works too – use whatever you have)
- 100g nuts (I used almonds but choose whatever you prefer – pistachios are lovely too)
- 120g biscuit of choice
- 40g raisins or other dried fruit (chopped if large)
- Extra 80g dark chocolate for the topping
- Break up the chocolate into a saucepan, add the margarine and melt on a low heat (take care not to burn)
- Add the syrup towards the end and combine. Turn off the heat.
- Break up the biscuits into the mix, add the raisins and nuts and stir to incorporate
- Line a baking tin with cling film, baking parchment or foil and add the mixture on top, flattening so it’s evenly distributed
- Slowly melt the remaining chocolate in the saucepan until smooth.
- Pour on top of the tiffin mix to create a thin layer over it.
- Place in the fridge for 2h to set.
- Remove from the tin and enjoy!
