Easy recipes for kids- Chocolate Tiffin

I have been doing lots of baking recently and this chocolate tiffin is one of my favourite recipes. It is really sweet and filling, you don’t need a lot for it to be a real treat!


100g unsalted butter

2 tablespoons of caster sugar

2 tablespoons of golden syrup

4 teaspoons of cocoa powder

225g of digestive biscuits

50g raisins

250g milk chocolate


Line a 20 x 20 tin with greaseproof paper.

Crush the biscuits

Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the sugar, syrup and cocoa.

Once all mixed in add the biscuits and raisins and stir them in.

Pour into the prepared tin and press down really hard and right into the corners.

Melt the chocolate and pour onto the top of the mixture and spread it out.

Put in the fridge for 1.5 to 2 hours before cutting the tiffin into aboutĀ  12 to 16 pieces depending on how big you would like it
