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

"will share when ready" yeah, right. More like "will stik my head in the fridge and scoff the lot".

There is only one person I know who makes this. I wonder if it's the same one.

The seemingly innocuous ingredients of ordinary Chocolate Tiffin mysteriously turn into something akin to crack cocaine when put together. Heaven knows what this one's like.

Made a mistake and put ALL the chocolate in the mixture so had to send for chocolate reinforcement from the shops for the topping.

Not tasted it yet though am waiting until after dinner(honest )

You've eaten it all and have got to make another batch haven't you?

Just read the ingredients of that out to DH. Sounds scrummy. How could it not be nice?

teeavee Sun 09-Oct-05 17:36:59

i'd never heard the word 'tiffin' before - but I like the sound of it!

what's the recipe for an ordinary Chocolate tiffin then??

roomonsammacsbroom Sun 09-Oct-05 17:42:25

Dunno- I've been doing lots of googling for tiffin, just knew it was a crushed biscuity, done in the fridge type thing and came across the recipe. We were away for the weekend with a bunch of folk and someone produced something like this and dh was raving about it( I never so much as even glanced it!) Not wanting to be outdone, I've been on a mission ever since to find a recipe, and this looked pretty darn good. But on the lookout for more. ( and it was a doddle to make, dd could have done it herself. Ds's contribution was licking the spoon!)

I've seen that in Starbucks but never tasted it- maybe I need to now for research purposes!

It tastes very yummy- and I have cut it in small squares rather than slices( then you can have two without the guilt!)

I'm going to tyr a white chocolate version

Alternative is to do a white chocolate toppping and sprinkle crushed maltesers over the top. Will have to make some of these soon!

MrsDoolittle Tue 18-Oct-05 15:34:28

Oh my - I feel a trip to Tescos comming on.

It's not fair!! I'm 22 weeks pregnant and desperately trying to control my weight.

Nbg Tue 18-Oct-05 15:37:17

Just enough time to make it and eat it before I do Beetroots diet

MrsDoolittle Tue 18-Oct-05 15:43:38

Okay I have now copied and printed the recipe, am ready to go to Tesco.

Should I double the quantity for good measure??

wilbur Tue 18-Oct-05 15:49:15

Wow this looks sooo good. Will be trying it out v soon and telling myself the calories will magically disappear through breastfeeding. Along with the other zillion calories I consume daily with the same excuse...

For some bizarre reason, my dh thinks 'tiffin' is a very smutty euphemism for sex.

(Know which I'd rather have-- especially if this is the recipe on offer.)

monstrousmummy Tue 18-Oct-05 16:11:46

Have you bought the recipe book from the blscksmiths cafe---??

It's one of my favourite haunts!! Must get dh to go this weekend!

MrsDoolittle Tue 18-Oct-05 17:37:05

I think the Tiffin euphemism comes from a Carry On film.

Nemo666 Tue 18-Oct-05 17:38:26

ooooooooooooo that sounds fab........mmmmmmmmmmmm may have to buy the ingredients.

gscrym Wed 19-Oct-05 16:17:53

Thats the white chocolate version in the fridge. Had to swap the maltesers with cranberries as I forgot to buy some.
I'm now going to perform a ritualistic dance to encourage it to cool faster.
