Ahhh chocolate tiffin, my most favourite thing in the world! I'm a bit of a tiffin enthusiast. if you hadn't guessed, and if there is one thing I will never be able to say no to, it's a slice of this rich chocolate treat.
My version is made extra special by the addition of chocolate-coated honeycomb, in the form of crushed crunchie bars!

What is chocolate tiffin?
Chocolate tiffin is a British no-bake cake comprising crushed biscuits (usually digestives), butter, syrup and chocolate.
You can add all sorts of other ingredients including dried fruit (raisins are a favourite), nuts and honeycomb.
Tiffin should never contain marshmallows though, these should be reserved for Rocky Road only!
✔️ Why should you try it?
Apart from being THE BEST THING EVER INVENTED.....
- Easy to make
- Kids can get involved
- Lots of different flavour combinations
- It keeps for weeks stored in the fridge
- Chocolate - A key ingredient and this version contains a mixture of melted dark and milk chocolate to get that chocolate intensity just right.
- Digestive Biscuits - The biscuits are crushed up into small pieces and mixed with the melted chocolate.
- Butter - Salted butter is used in this tiffin recipe, although you could substitute with unsalted if you wished.
- Golden Syrup - The beautiful amber liquid gives the tiffin just the right amount of sweetness.
- Chocolate Coated Honeycomb - Crushed Cadbury's Crunchie Bars have been used in this version, but any other chocolate coated honeycomb is fine to use too.
The recipe card with ingredient quantities and detailed instructions can be found at the bottom of the post
One: Crush the biscuits and crunchie bars with a rolling pin and place them into a large bowl.
Two: Melt the butter, chocolate and syrup together (I do it in the microwave in 20 second bursts), and pour into the crushed biscuit mix.
Three: Stir thoroughly until everything is coated in the melted chocolate mixture.
Four: Line a 20 cm square tin with cling film and pour the tiffin in, spreading out with the back of a spoon. Finish by sprinkling over more crushed honeycomb. Place in the fridge and allow to set for 2 hours before cutting into squares.
🍴 Serving suggestions
I often make a batch of this moreish tiffin for birthday parties and family gatherings. It goes down really well at Christmas parties too, where I sometimes add some Christmassy flavour in the form of dried fruit and nuts.
There are loads of ways to vary the flavour and texture of chocolate tiffin. Like I previously mentioned, dried fruit (raisins, sultanas, cranberries) give a lovely sweetness to the tiffin, and chopped pecans or walnuts give a lovely crunch.
You could try replacing the honeycomb with Maltesers to make Malteser tiffin, which is another gem of a recipe.
Alternatively, replace the digestives with another type of biscuit. Rich tea, gingernuts, and shortbread all work well.
The chocolate honeycomb tiffin will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for at least a couple of weeks. It won't last that long though. You can also freeze the tiffin if you wished.
