Regular readers of the blog will know I'm a bit obsessed with chocolate tiffin and I have a fair few recipes on the blog already (Malty Mini Egg Tiffin Bars are still my all time favourite). It's certainly not something I'd ever pass up when offered, that's for sure! Anyway I thought it was about time I gave my regular tiffin recipe a bit of a festive makeover with some shortbread, Christmas spiced fudge (from Copperpot), brazil nuts, orange zest and glace cherries. All my favourite flavours of Christmas in one bite.
I'll warn you, they are very very rich so make sure you cut the slices on the smallish size, but they are real winners in taste. These no bake tiffin bars would make an ideal sweet treat on a Christmas buffet table and I'm sure Santa wouldn't mind exchanging a few mince pies for one of these bars either.
It's just a shame one's waistline has to suffer for the privilege!
TIPS FOR MAKING THE FESTIVE CHOCOLATE TIFFIN
- If you don't like shortbread, feel free to use another type of biscuit. Ginger Nuts would be nice.
- You could try making it in a round tin if you prefer and cut it into wedges rather than bars.
- Crushed up candy canes on top would look nice if you can't find any festive sprinkles.
