Whenever I'm out and about during half term, I always seem to visit Costa at least once and I am an absolute sucker for their chocolate tiffin! I love anything chocolatey anyway, but their tiffin doesn't help the cravings. So when I was looking through my new favourite cookbook, Jo Wheatley- A passion for baking, and found a recipe for chocolate tiffin, I knew I had to try it. And it didn't disappoint! It may not look as neat as the precisely cut picture in the book, but it was just as yummy!
125g Digestive Biscuits (Around 7)
30g Desiccated Coconut
30g Glace Cherries, washed and quartered
65g Unsalted Butter/Margarine
1.5 tbsp Golden Syrup
1 tbsp Malted Drink Powder- I used Ovaltine
1 tbsp Caster Sugar
250g White Chocolate (You may want to use 300g depending if you'd like lots of chocolate topping)
Break the biscuits into halves and place in a freezer bag and using a rolling pin, crush them into smallish pieces, then tip them into a large bowl. Add the coconut and the cherries.
Put the butter, syrup, malted drink powder and sugar in a small saucepan. Place a low heat and stir constantly until the mixture is thoroughly combined. You will notice a distinct change in the mixture as it will thicken slightly and start to bubble. Pour this mixture over the biscuits and stir until evenly coated.
Spoon the mixture into a greased and lined baking tin- I used a . Press the mixture down firmly into an even layer and leave to cool completely.
Break the chocolate into even sized pieces and melt in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir to get a smooth consistency and pour over the biscuit base. Leave to set completely
Cut the tiffin into squares (I made 9) using a knife that has been run under hot water as this will make it easier to slice through.
