No-bake festive tiffin


For the tiffin

250g (9oz) dark chocolate

150g (5½oz) butter

150g (5½oz) soft brown sugar

300g (10½oz) digestive biscuits, crushed

150g (5½oz) dried fruit (we used mainly cranberries)

1 tsp mixed spice

2 tbsp brandy or rum (optional)

For the topping

250g (9oz) white chocolate, melted, cooled slightly

edible sprinkles or glitter, to decorate

1 Grease and line a deep 20cm (8in) square loose-bottomed cake tin.

2 Place the dark chocolate, butter and sugar in a saucepan. Place the pan on the heat and allow the mixture to melt gently, stirring a little. Remove from the heat and add the brandy or rum, if using.

3 Stir in the crushed biscuits, mixed spice and dried fruit. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined.

4 Spoon the mixture into the cake tin, then press down using the back of a metal spoon so that it is evenly spread and compacted. Place the tin in the fridge until set.

5 To make the topping, melt the white chocolate, then pour it over the chilled tiffin. Spread it evenly and, either decorate now, or allow the chocolate to cool in the fridge and decorate later. Cut into squares or triangles. The tiffin will keep for 1 week in a tin.
