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


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

I have just found one in the new Sainsbo's mag I am going to adapt:

White chocolate, pistachio, amaretti biscuits and dried cranberry fridge cake.

Well, after reading this, and feeling the pressure of the school christmas fayre tomorrow, I have made this today.

Looks good - I am sure it will sell smile

My friend at work makes this - it is delicious!

(I can't believe how old this original thread is!)

I crushed them as per trefusis' suggestion - may have to make another batch though to try out a few variations.

SatinandTat Fri 03-Dec-10 12:45:42

Do I break up the maltasers or stir them in whole?

crikeybadger Fri 03-Dec-10 10:15:53

wheatfree ginger bics might go well pipplin.

Have just made it using rich tea biscuits and it is divine! grin

As DH is wheatfree could I use hobnobs instead or would it be best to stick to wheatfree ginger biscuits. Digestive wheatfree biscuits I have tried are wrong, just wrong imo. sad

Me too bumper- I'm gonna try this one out for the school Christmas bazaar on friday.

Only have dark choc but guess that won't matter.

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!

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

flutterbee Thu 13-Jul-06 22:49:07

Hurrah for Mumsnet.

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 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.

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 used out of date bourbon biscuits because that's all I had Tiffin is good if you use ginger nuts too...

starshaker Fri 04-Nov-05 08:19:38

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 08:13:22

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...

Flossam Fri 04-Nov-05 00:19:10

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!!
