A rich and delicious no-bake chocolate honeycomb tiffin studded with crushed Crunchie bars.
This treat is perfect for any chocolate lover, and it's incredibly simple to make. The best part? It doesn't require any baking!
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?
- Easy to make.
- Kids love making it.
- Lots of different flavour combinations.
- It keeps for weeks in the fridge.
To make the chocolate crunchie tiffin you will need;
- 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 melted chocolate.
- Butter - Salted butter is used in this tiffin recipe, although you could substitute it with unsalted if you prefer.
- 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 in a bowl (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 it out with the back of a spoon. Finish by sprinkling over more crushed honeycomb. Place in the refrigerator 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 flavours in the form of dried fruit and nuts.
There are loads of ways to vary the flavour and texture of chocolate tiffin. Dried fruit (raisins, sultanas, cranberries) give a lovely sweetness to the tiffin, and chopped pecans or walnuts add a nice 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 wish.

I've ever heard of chocolate tiffin before, but I'm so glad I learned because this looks amazing!
Hi Erika! Tiffin is a really popular treat here in the UK.
Mmmm! These are so yummy! can't wait to make them again!
Oh, Beth - how have I gotten this far in life and never heard of (or tried) a tiffin?!? *gasp* Just one look at that first pic, and I could see why it's just your very favorite thing, but you sure reeled me right on it with it being no-bake, and super-easy! Plus, it can be stored in the fridge for weeks (for ... you know ... chocolate emergencies)! Perfect! I'm so glad I found this recipe!!
Hi Shelley! Tiffin is such a popular treat here in the UK. A bit like Rocky Road I guess but without the marshmallows.

I'm from the U.S., so I'd never heard of Tiffin before. Your description has me wanting to book a trip across the pond, but Covid and all -- I'm going to head to the market to see if I can find a honeycomb candy. (They do have a British section in our store, so maybe I'll get lucky!)
Hi Lisa! I hope you manage to find the honeycomb.
This was incredible! Your recipe is going right on my list for holiday baking. Everyone will love it.
Ah this looks fab! I love tiffin, always reminds me of being at school.
I tried the recipe it was good and easy to make. Thank you for sharing.

This tiffin recipe sounds so good. I love the combination of chocolate and crunch - can't wait to try these!
I hadn't heard of tiffin before but once you described it, sounds like a lot of no bake bars we enjoy in the states too! And who can argue with ingredients like biscuits and chocolate?! Love this recipe for a quick little bite of a treat!
What a fun treat! These will disappear fast!
Tiffin is a total (not so guilty) pleasure of mine and i love the honeycomb twist on this. YUM
