Maltesers Tiffin

As I write this post, I'm having a tiffin party for one! For father’s day this year, I decided to make my dads a tiffin selection box each. Thing is, a selection box requires a selection, and so three different tiffins were made: malteser, Cadbury's fruit and nut, and (everyone’s favourite) white chocolate macadamia. I'm going to try to stagger the recipes so that I don't need to rename this blog "The Princess and the Tiffin", but here's the first of the three!

Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Chill time: 1 hour
Makes 20 pieces

Ingredients :
400g milk chocolate
90g butter
3tbsp golden syrup
200g malted milk biscuits
100g Maltesers

  1. Start by lining a square brownie tin (20x20cm) with clingfilm or greaseproof paper.
  2. Break the chocolate into chunks, then pop 200g into a large microwavable bowl. Add the butter and golden syrup, and microwave on a medium heat in 20 second blasts, stirring between each blast, until the ingredients have melted together to form warm, gooey, chocolately loveliness. Pop this to one side to cool slightly.
  3. Put your biscuits into a food processor and wizz until they are mostly crumbs (a few small biscuity lumps is fine!!)
  4. Add the biscuit crumbs and the maltesers to the melted chocolate mixture, and stir until everything is coated.
  5. Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and flatten down with the back of a spoon. Pop this in the fridge to chill for 5 minutes, and then move on to the topping.
  6. Melt the remaining chocolate, and then carefully pour over the tiffin. Use the back of a clean spoon to spread this evenly over the tiffin, then return the tin to the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.
  7. Once set, turn the tiffin out of the pan onto a chopping board and cut into 20 squares.
  8. Taste one, and come up with a sneaky plan to hide them from everyone else :-)


  1. my favourite of this type is a nigella recipe which uses crunchies and salted peanutes

    1. That sound delicious, bagpuss! I have another couple of tiffin recipes to post over the next few weeks - the white chocolate and macadamia tiffin got a lot of complements! Keep an eye out :-)
