If chocolate wasn't good enough, Chocolate Tiffin is an amazing treat. It's easy to make with the kids (no oven required), it's quick & easy, and it always wins fans. This recipe has proved to be the nemesis of many a dieter.

- 25g soft brown sugar
- 3 tbsp cocoa
- 4 tbsp golden syrup

Pop the butter, sugar, cocoa & syrup in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and if lumpy pop back in for further 10 second bursts. You should have a smooth, shiny, chocolatey syrup.
Take out some aggression and smash up some digestives (I put mine in a plastic bowl and let the kids hammer it with a wooden spoon). Don't break them down into crumbs, you want some decent size chunks of biscuit.
Stir in the syrup with the biscuits, nuts & berries and spread the mix into a brownie or square cake tin.
Finally, pop the chocolate in a bowl and microwave for 20 second bursts until it has melted (if you are using milk chocolate I tend to add a good teaspoon of cocoa to richen it up). Then pour over the top of your mix.
Allow to cool and then transfer to the fridge. After an hour turn it out and cut into cubes using a sharp knife. I then normally give it a tiny dust of icing sugar....Enjoy.
All the ingredients are supermarket basics, with exception of the cocoa, that has to be good quality.
