Decadent Chocolate Tiffin

MAKES 24

Richly topped with dark chocolate and sprinkled with shards of almond, these bite-sized morsels of decadent deliciousness are just the thing with a morning cup of tea. Or an after-dinner coffee. Or a sneak-downstairs-and-empty-the-biscuit-tin midnight snack…

Made using our Mini Morsel Set.

Ingredients

  • 100g butter
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 25g raisins
  • 25g dried apricots, chopped
  • 25g glace cherries, chopped
  • 20g almonds, finely chopped
  • 150g digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 30g ratafia biscuits, crushed
  • 150g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • A few almonds, sliced into thin shards, to decorate

Instructions

  1. Put the butter and golden syrup into a large saucepan and heat gently until just melted, taking care not to let the mixture get too hot. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder.
  2. Add the raisins, apricots, cherries, chopped almonds, digestive and ratafia biscuits, stirring until thoroughly coated.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the holes of the mini morsel tin, using the pusher to help press the mixture down. Transfer to the fridge to chill for about 20 minutes.
  4. Put the dark chocolate pieces into a heatproof bowl. Position the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water until the chocolate has melted, stirring occasionally.
  5. Spoon the chocolate on top of the chilled bases, using a teaspoon to spread it evenly. Sprinkle with thin shards of almond and return to the fridge for about 30 minutes. Once fully set, remove from the tin and serve.

Tips: This recipe can be made without the ratafia biscuits – just use 180g digestives in total. Will keep, covered in the fridge, for up to a week.
