Have been on the hunt for a recipe like this after dh tasted one when we were away fro the weekend and found this.

MALTESER CHOCOLATE TIFFIN

This is based on a recipe from the Blacksmith's Coffee Shop, Belsay, north of Newcastle. Use the best chocolate you can get (minimum 60% cocoa solids for dark; minimum 30% for milk).

100g quality dark chocolate
300g quality milk chocolate
100g butter

3 tbsp golden syrup
275g digestive biscuits, crushed
250g Maltesers

Melt the dark chocolate, 100g of milk chocolate, the butter and syrup together and then stir in the digestives. Gently stir in the Maltesers and tip into a lined Swiss-roll tin (23 x 33 cm), levelling out.

Melt the remaining 200g of milk chocolate and pour over, smoothing the surface carefully. Once cold, cut into pieces.

mmmmm chocolate heaven, I've added raisins and you could put other things in too.

Cooling in the fridge, will share when ready

Hmm, was thinking of doing the same old rice crispie cakes for Ds's birthday. Perhaps I should do this instead?

Sammack---would you mind if I used this recipe in my cookbook? I will put you in the credits along with Blacksmiths Coffee Shop!

white chocolate is an abomination.

Soupdragon, I have no choice, I'm allergic to caffeine which is in milk/dark chocolate. You get used to it.

Only just seen this Sunchowder. Of course use it- I would be very honoured, but I claim no ownership of it, just my googling skills at work

Have made this twice already since first seeing it. Not good for pre Christmas diet!!

roomonsammacsbroom Sun 30-Oct-05 16:13:46

Had not explored this part of the 'talk' area before...not I am always checking in case I fancy something on here for tea!!

right - got all the ingredients.... BUT.... whats the measurements in oz's? DH's scales are the old fashioned weights one side ingredients the other..... HELP!

SoupDragon Mon 31-Oct-05 20:16:25

1 oz = 25g IIRC.

SoupDragon Mon 31-Oct-05 20:17:01

(roughly speaking. It seems to be the conversion most recipes use)

And, because I'm bored, you get:

4oz quality dark chocolate
12oz quality milk chocolate
4oz butter

3 tbsp golden syrup
11oz digestive biscuits, crushed
10oz Maltesers

Probably.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I can go off and make it now and maybe get to eat some before bed!!!

i made this tonight and it is lovverly. So thanks very much. Dp's estimation of the estasblishment has increased after tasting this lovely chocolatey tiffin!!

SoupDragon Fri 04-Nov-05 08:13:22

I was rather disappointed actually. I think the Maltesers need to be crushed to a certain extent otherwise the overpower the texture of the Tiffin. And make it fall apart more easily so you have to eat all the crumbs and make yourself feel sick...

oh i made this the other day but used golden crunch biscuits instead with white and milk buttons and mixed it in with dark chocolate. dont know what it was like cos i made it at work and hadnt set by the time i left

SoupDragon Fri 04-Nov-05 08:27:04

I used out of date bourbon biscuits because that's all I had Tiffin is good if you use ginger nuts too...

OMG - dp made this for me.......WOW unfotunately we ate the whole thing between us

So he's bought some more but is going to add raisens and stuff.....

Think I'd better miss Slimming World this week

I put cranberries in mine and it was lush. Also went down well at work. Must make more after tomorrows trip to the shops.
Might try it with ginger biscuits instead of digestives.

Have just made a batch and they are yummy!! Can anyone tell me after they've been in the fridge for setting do they then stay in the fridge until eaten or go in an airtight container?

I just made this, and it is bloody delicious.

Hurrah for Mumsnet.

Just had to resurrect this thread to say I have just made this and it's bloody gorgeous!!! Everyone should make some now!

Just found this thread while doing a google search and thought I'd bump it again in case you have never heard of it. Honestly the stuff is like crack!
