The kids and I had a great time in the kitchen yesterday making our own version of tiffin (rocky road/fridge cake).
I went for my favourite ginger recipe which combines gingernuts and crystallised ginger with dark chocolate buttery goodness!
The kids however went with colour! They decided to add a selection of their favourite sweets and couldn’t believe that we were technically “working” 😂.
This is a great recipe to try with the kids as it’s easy and they can let their imaginations run wild! Also, you can’t really go wrong – when you combine chocolate, butter and biscuits it’s always going to be good!
So, it all started with a trip to the supermarket for supplies! It may not be the healthiest of bakes but it’s all about balance, right?! This isn’t something we make every week.

To get started you need to gently melt the chocolate, syrup and butter over a low heat. Stir gently until it’s all melted and then remove from the heat. You can do this in a saucepan, just make sure it’s a low heat and go slowly.
Whilst the chocolate mixture is melting you can prepare your other ingredients. Chop your choice of biscuits into small pieces and chop any other ingredients that need to be smaller to mix in.
Once the chocolate mixture is all smooth you can mix it together with the biscuits and anything else you would like in your tiffin.
Then spoon the mixture into your lined baking tray and level it out with a spatula or wooden spoon.
Now is the time to add any toppings you like! It will then need to go into the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
Once cold you will need a nice sharp knife to cut your tiffin into bitesize pieces. Best served with a nice cup of tea or hot milk. See the full recipe below ⬇️
Basic Tiffin Recipe
This is my basic recipe which works as a starting point. You can adapt it with different dried fruits and biscuits to create the perfect tiffin for you. My favourite has to be ginger – I use gingernuts and some crystallised ginger, so yummy!
