Biddy’s Tiffin


My grandma was an amazing cook, especially with sweet things like cake. One of my favourite easy recipes of hers is her Chocolate Tiffin, something that she made often and tastes amazing!

The recipe is very simple and is very quick to make – this is one recipe that I often make with my son as he loves to help in the kitchen. If you’re trying to get your kids involved in cooking then this recipe is one I would recommend as they can do most of it themselves.


  • 4oz Margarine or Butter
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 2 tbsps Drinking Chocolate
  • 7oz Broken Biscuits (I usually use digestive biscuits or rich tea biscuits)
  • 4oz Plain or Milk Chocolate

In a large pan on the lowest heat on the hob, cook together the margarine, sugar, golden syrup and drinking chocolate until it is a smooth mixture. Once this is done turn off the heat and add the broken biscuits. The biscuits need to be broken into very small pieces but not so small that they turn to dust. Mix the biscuits in until the mixture is covering all the biscuit pieces.

Get out a small tray and use a wooden spoon to squish the mixture down into the tray so that it is packed tightly. Once this is done put the tray into the fridge to cool until needed later.

Break the chocolate into individual pieces and place in a glass bowl. Put only a small amount of water into a pan that is smaller than the glass bowl and place the bowl on top. The water needs to start boiling so that the chocolate will melt but be careful it doesn’t spit out the sides.

Once the chocolate is melted completely, get the tray out of the fridge and pour the melted chocolate over the top. Make sure it covers the tray. Place back in the fridge until it has gone solid and then cut up into pieces.

I have used Milky Buttons to put on top in the picture. Other times I have also used Smarties but any kind of chocolate or sweet will work or absolutely nothing it’s completely up to you!
