I needed a recipe for chocolate tiffin without fruit. As I couldn’t find one I liked, I took a classic tiffin recipe and I modified it by taking out the raisins and adding in chopped Rolos.
Chocolate tiffin is a tasty treat, that requires no more baking skills, than melting some ingredients and mixing them all together. I found a recipe on BBC Good Food for classic chocolate tiffin, and as per usual I made some changes. Some based on aiming to use up stuff and others on taste preference. Go have a look at the original recipe if you’d like to see the comparison.
The Changes I Made For My Chocolate Tiffin Without Fruit
I didn’t want fruit as not everyone I made these for likes fruit in chocolate. On the other hand, I was pretty sure noone would object to Rolos. Chocolate chips were added too because, why not? They were specially made for Easter Sunday, so this time I topped them with Mini Eggs to theme them for the season.
You can top this chocolate tiffin without fruit with the sweets of your choice. Your favourite sweets will probably mix in just fine into this no bake recipe too. I’m planning on using this recipe again sometime with Maltesers and M&Ms as per a special request of one of the kids.
I took this chocolate tiffin recipe from BBC Goodfood
