used plenty of recipes from this excellent forum thought i would share one of mine....not seen a recipe on here for Tiffin

250g biscuits crushed any broken bits will do

75g raisins

75g chopped cherries

4oz marg

4 tblsp syrup

25g cocoa powder

melt butter sugar cocoa and syrup in a pan mix in other dry ingredients

tip into a lined tin ....I use a 9 inch square tin depends how fat you want tiffin to be

dont press down to firmly or tiffin will be too hard

put in fridge to chill then cut into squares

ENJOY :D

    How about this?

    4 oz butter
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    1 tablespoon golden syrup
    2 tablespoons raisins
    8oz Rich Tea or Digestive biscuits
    5oz good quality milk chocolate
    Melt the butter and sugar with the syrup in a large pan.
    Add the raisins and cocoa powder, bring to the boil. Allow to bubble gently for two to three minutes to thicken a little.
    Meanwhile, crush the biscuits with a rolling pin, or you can pulse them in a food processor to give crumbs, depending on whether you prefer a smooth or chunky effect. Don't leave the biscuit pieces too large or the finished slab will tend to break up when cut.
    Mix the crumbs well into the melted mixture, coating thoroughly, press into a lined shallow Swiss roll tin and level out, pushing down the mixture well.
    Melt the chocolate carefully and spread over the top. Leave to set.

    Don't make this very often - not having much fridge space and all but I think this should work.

    150g of biscuits - digestives, ginger nuts, or similair
    75g nuts (or more biscuits if not doing nuts)
    4 tbsp golden syrup
    3 tbsp cocoa powder
    175g butter
    100g dried fruit

    bash up bicuits and nuts if using. Melt butter and syrup. Add cocoa, and then throw everything else in pan and give it a good stir. Tip mixture into greased tin and firm down. Put in fridge to set.

    Obviously you can vary the flavours depending on what fruit and biscuits you want to use.
