Festive Fudgy Chocolate Tiffin

Festive Fudgy Chocolate Tiffin

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

  1. If you don't like shortbread, feel free to use another type of biscuit. Ginger Nuts would be nice.
  2. You could try making it in a round tin if you prefer and cut it into wedges rather than bars.
  3. Crushed up candy canes on top would look nice if you can't find any festive sprinkles.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
