Tuck In Tuesday - Chocolate Tiffin

Tuck In Tuesdays - home cooked food for busy working parents!

Chocolate Tiffin


1 pack of digestive biscuits (300g)
150g of Unsalted butter
3 tbsp Maple or Golden Syrup
4 tbsp of Cocoa
150g chopped milk chocolate or chocolate buttons

This is one of those nice, simple recipes that the kids can make with very little supervision.  My two are aged 6 & 8 and have great fun making this.

Melt butter & syrup in a pan (adults)

Crush biscuits


Mix in cocoa

Pour in melted butter & syrup (adults)


Add marshmallows & chocolate

And mix

Pour in tin (unless you want it all over the floor, advised that adults do this part - I speak from experience!)

Press down with the back of a spoon and place in the fridge for at least an hour

Cut into slices

And end up looking like this!

Now TUCK IN & enjoy!

Lets Make Things Easy

This takes less than 15 minutes to make, even when you have two kids 'helping' or should that read fighting over who does what!

So I am pleased to say it doesn't come much easier than this.

Great for that simple pud, parties, lunch boxes (child & adult) and lovely pressie for Gran - whats better than home cooked sweet goodies that the kids have made themselves.

Meal Alternatives

Instead of marshmallows what about adding:

Crushed maltesers
Flaked coconut
Chopped nuts & glace cherries

Don't forget to come back next Tuesday for

Pork & Mushroom Cobler
