Print this Recipe    Chocolate Tiffin

Chocolate Tiffin (also known as Chocolate Concrete).
(makes one cob)

4 oz butter or margarine
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons drinking chocolate
1 tablespoon golden syrup
2 tablespoons raisins
8oz Rich Tea or plain biscuits
5oz Bournville or good quality milk chocolate

Melt the butter and sugar with the syrup in a large pan. Add the
raisins and drinking chocolate and bring to the boil. Allow to
bubble gently for two to three minutes to thicken a little. Meanwhile,
crush the biscuits with a rolling pin. Alternatively, you can grind
them in a food processor to give crumbs, depending on whether you
prefer a smooth or chunky effect. Don't leave the biscuit pieces
too large, however, or the finished slab will tend to break up when
cut. Mix the crumbs well into the melted mixture, coating thoroughly,
press into a lined 7ins by 11ins shallow Swiss roll tin and level
out, pushing down the mixture well. Melt the chocolate carefully
and spread over the top. Leave to set in a cool place then cut into
15 or 24 pieces with a sharp knife. (Other curious names for this
recipe include rocky road squares, chocolate concrete or the rather
dubious sounding cement!)

This recipe is fast becoming a fav and I am so glad I have been able to share it with friends. It is something my mum used to make. You can alter the recipe to add other things like small nuts and cherries. An absolute favorite in my house hold and very filling.

This recipe worked quite well, although I chose not to include raisins. In my case, there was not enough of the butter/syrup/sugar/drinking chocolate liquid to solidify the crumbs. I would recommend increasing the amounts to: 6oz butter, 2 tbsp sugar, 4 tbsp drinking chocolate, 2 tbsp golden syrup.

Very similar to my mother-in-law\'s recipe and a firm favourite with the children. They prefer it a bit thicker so I increase the mixture by 50% and use 3 ozs sultanas instead of raisins. Usually have the biscuits fairly fine with a small proportion of small chunks for a bit of texture. I don\'t bother bubbling the marj mix, just melt it slowly and add the crumbs and mix WELL. Milk chocolate is a bit sweet for adults so I use 5 ozs chocolate, 1/3 plain 2/3 milk. This seems to satisfy everyone.

Reviewer: Anonymous from eastern greenland...as of two weeks!! wish us luck!!
well, today my life partner Johnathan and I decided to renact our childhood by creating some of that absolutely mind boggling tiffinating tiffin which we used to recieve in our old school. ocassionally, when our childhood bullies (greg, kevin, sean and mc) werent skippin us in the queue we would buy some of tiffin and have a complete tiffinoctamy together! this recipy was sincerely helpful since we could not complete our course in home economics because we accidentally dropped out of school and went to work in littlewoods, and it's not our fault if we havent got the talents of that culinary genious, gordon ramsy!! on reading this recipie, and copying it into our special cooking jotter, which we never forget and made the miricle affrodisica of a food that is tiffin. we made batches and batches of it and couldnt stop eating, it was just simply too delicious! after recent discussions with our local minister,father joe, we've decided that tiffin is a gift from, jesus, allah, buddah, guru knanak...and of course the geniuses that are jim morrison and john lennon. thank you so much for this recipie, we have found our meaning in life to be tiffin missionaries and supply this amazing tastebud tingling tastic tiffic to the most unfortunate, small, scrawny, big nosed, pale, thin children across eastern greenland. we feel this has given us a place in the world, so thank you, THANK YOU!! love and tiffin, Johnathan and Hasheem Partridge-Kahn. x

Terrific Tiffin, August 11, 2006 - 11:10 AM
Reviewer: Iceni Gal from Norfolk, England
This is delish, I like to soak the raisins in rum or similar alcohol (have used Malibu in the past) then drain them before adding, gives the rich cake a lovely boozy taste!!
