Easy-Peasy Tiffin

Fridge cake? Sounds revolting, right? Well, I thought that...but I was wrong, so read on and experience this ridiculously easy and delicious cake. I've always liked Tiffin but was never actually aware how it was made - no baking at all, it's all about the fridge!

All you need is:
120g butter
25g sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp honey
250g broken biscuits - I used digestives but rich tea are okay too
2 tbsp drinking chocolate
1 tbsp cocoa powder
50g raisins
25g glace cherries
125 melted chocolate, melted (I used double this as my dad would complain if not!)

In a pan melt the butter and mix in the sugar, milk and honey. Make sure it is all mixed well.

In a bowl, break the biscuits into small crumbs while the butter mix is melting.

You need to add half  of the crumbs to melted butter along with the drinking choc and cocoa powder. 

Now you need to mix this all reeeally well. Once you've done that, add the rest of the biscuit crumbs and raisins and cherries. And again, mix well.

Tip the mix into a lightly greased sandwich tin and press down well. This is the base of your Tiffin so it should be about 2cm thick. Now you need to play the waiting game and leave this in your fridge for 1 to 2 hours to set.

1-2 hours passed? It should now be set. Get that bad boy out of the fridge. Melt your chocolate on a med-low heat in the microwave - only do short, 30 second bursts though so it doesn't burn. 

Pour melted chocolate over evenly over the biscuit base. 

Remind anyone of this? - Extremely annoying but I guarantee this will be stuck in your head now!

Now you've poured the melted chocolate on...more waiting. Back in the fridge for another half an hour to an hour to set before cutting into tasty chunks. I got about 12 chunks from mine; and my Dad was disappointed as he pretty much demolished those on his own. Double batch next time, Dad?
