White Chocolate Tiffin

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! 

You'll Need:
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.

 Happy Baking!
