Chocolate & Marshmallow Tiffin


The boys were on half term last week and I managed to get one day off with them ( which luckily turned out to be the one day Ted wasn’t ill after he came down with a bad case of flu the day after … and is still poorly now a week later 😦 !) Anyway …  the weather was remarkably mild so our full on day of making and baking became a few bits thrown together in between bike rides and games of tennis … but one thing we did make was this incredibly moreish and decadently dangerous Chocolate and Marshmallow tiffin  …  so easy to make and so delicious to eat ! Here’s our recipe

50 g butter

400g milk chocolate

150g digestive biscuits

50g dried apricots , chopped

50g raisins

50g mini marshmallows

3 nougat & caramel bars/nutty caramel bars  refrigerated and sliced in 2 cm chunks

Grease and line a 20 x20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper . place a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water ( make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water) and place the butter and chocolate into the bowl. Stir until completely melted then pop the bowl to one side to cool slightly.

Put the biscuits into a sealed sandwich bag and break into 2cm chunks ( Don’t completely obliterate into submission like the boys did !! ). Tip the biscuits , apricots , raisins and marshmallows into the melted chocolate and stir well , add the chocolate bar slices and stir well . Tip it all into your prepared tin , cover with cling film and refrigerate for approximately 2 hours. Now cut it into squares , pop the kettle on and enjoy xx
