Ultimate Chocolate Malteser Tiffin

Crumbly chocolate tiffin with chewy maltesers and a smooth chocolate topping.

I would go as far to say that this recipe is possibly the only reason we as a family have friends.

This has been tried and tested by every single birthday, anniversary, dinner party, wedding, christening, tea party or even non occasion the Smolen’s have attended.

It says “thank you” a lot, and “let me be in your good books” even more; bribery is a beautiful thing.

If mum makes it to take in to work, she has to leave a strip behind for us for her own good, she knows tiffin deprivation is an ugly experience.

Basically this stuff is pretty bloody amazing and I have never met anybody who has turned down a piece.

Ultimate Chocolate Malteser Tiffin

Warning 1: the mix before it is set is incredibly addictive and you will eat a lot of it.

Warning 2: If you are on a diet, erase your memory of everything that is in it and pretend it was made with carrots

You will need:

  • 1oog 70% dark choc
  • 300g milk choc (good quality)
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 3 tbs golden syrup
  • 275g crushed digestives
  • 200g maltesers

1) In a pan, gently melt the butter, 100g milk choc, dark choc and golden syrup together in a pan until it is a smooth silky saucy texture.

2) With a rolling pin, lay a tea towel over the biscuits and bash them until they are crumbs. Leave some bigger lumps in but most of it needs to be crumby.

3) Pour the bashed digestives into the chocolate and butter mix and stir it all together to make a sort of paste. Then mix in your maltesers.

4) Line a pan with greaseproof paper and spoon the mix into any shape you like keeping it about 1 1/2 inches thick then pop to one side.

5) In a seperate bowl melt the remaining 200g of chocolate. If you do it in the microwave be careful not to burn it! Then pour it as a topping onto the tiffin you just shaped. Leave to set.

6) After about  2 hours in the fridge the tiffin should be set, cut it into cubes, eat the escape crumbs and share with everyone at every occasion possible! Especially those who you want to be your friend.
