Heaven … chocolate heaven ….

Heaven … I’m in heaven … as Frank Sinatra used to sing – but my heaven is not dancing cheek to cheek, but rather stuffing my cheeks, hamster-fashion, with this wonderful chocolate tiffin cake …..

Tiffin

 Rosie brought the recipe with her and assures me that this tiffin has no calories at all if you eat it (a) standing up, and (b) if nobody sees you do so.  I’m not at all sure about that – just look at the divine chocolatey-ness of it… 

Tiffin

 And here’s the recipe Rosie shared with me …

100g 70% dark chocolate, 300g good quality milk chocolate, 100g unsalted butter, 3 tbspns golden syrup, 275g crushed digestive biscuits (these are a sweetmeal biscuit, a little like a graham cracker), 200g Maltesers. (Rosie prefers to use metric units, but you can find lots of conversion tables online if needed, though to be perfectly honest I don’t think that the quantities need to be too exact).  This recipe simply couldn’t be easier and would be a great make for kids too!

  • Melt the butter, 100g milk chocolate, all the dark chocolate and golden syrup together until they are a smooth silky texture
  • Pour the crushed digestive biscuits into this mixture and stir together to make a sort of paste.  Then mix in the Maltesers.
  • Line a pan with greaseproof paper and spoon in your mixture, flattening the top with your spoon.
  • In a separate bowl melt the remaining 200g of milk chocolate.  Then pour as a topping onto your tiffin.  Leave to set.
  • After a couple of hours in the fridge it should be set.  Cut it into squares, eating the crumbs as you go, and share with friends and family.  Yum!!

    Ermmmmmmm – being a huge Fred and Ginger fan wasn’t it Fred Astair who sang Dancing Cheek-to-Cheek. Written by Irving Berlin for the film Top Hat?
