Right, it’s been a few weeks since we had a tiffin recipe, so I thought now would be a good time to share another of my tiffin selection box: Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut tiffin! I made this one with my dad in mind, who loves Cadbury Fruit and Nut. Obviously you don’t have to use Cadbury’s chocolate if you don’t want to, but if you don’t then you won’t get that authentic Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut taste!
I thought I should mention that I’m not actually being sponsored by Cadbury for this post – I’m just a big fan of their chocolate. Of course, if anyone from Cadbury is reading this and would like to send me some free chocolate, I’d be cool with that!
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Chill time: 1 hour
Makes 20 pieces
400g Cadbury's Dairy Milk
3tbsp golden syrup
150g digestive biscuits
100g whole almonds
50g dried fruit
- Start by lining a square brownie tin (20x20cm) with clingfilm or greaseproof paper.
- 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.
- Put your biscuits into a food processor and wizz until they are mostly crumbs (a few small biscuity lumps is fine!!)
- Add the biscuit crumbs, almonds and dried fruit to the melted chocolate mixture, and stir until everything is coated.
- 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.
- 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.
- Once set, turn the tiffin out of the pan onto a chopping board and cut into 20 squares.
- Pop one in your mouth and marvel at how something so tasty can be made so simply!
