    Easter tiffin

    By Martha Collison

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes + chilling
    • Total time: 20 minutes + chilling

    Makes: 16


    300g digestive biscuits
    50g cocoa powder
    100g raisins or sultanas
    50g glacé cherries, halved
    150g butter
    125g golden syrup
    100g dark chocolate
    100g milk chocolate
    150g Easter chocolate treats, broken up (mini eggs, chocolate eggs, Creme Eggs) 


    1. Grease and line a 20x20cm baking tin with baking parchment. Crush the biscuits into crumbs, either using a food processor or a bowl and wooden spoon. You’re looking for a rubbly mixture with a few pea-sized pieces of biscuit remaining to give the tiffin some texture. Combine the crumbs with the cocoa powder, dried fruit and cherries.

    2. In a small pan, melt the butter and golden syrup together until smooth. Add a pinch of sea salt flakes, then pour into the dry ingredients. Stir together until everything is really well mixed, then tip into the lined tin and use a spatula to press the mixture firmly into an even layer. Chill for 20 minutes.

    3. Meanwhile, melt both chocolates together in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, until smooth. Pour the melted chocolate over the chilled base and tilt the tin to get an even covering. Sprinkle with Easter chocolate, then chill for 30 minutes, or until firm.

    4. Slice into squares (see tip below for how to do this) and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
