Chocolate Tiffin

Whenever we visit England you can be sure we enjoy the yummy sweet treats we don’t often get or make stateside. Oh boy, we load ourselves with victoria cakes,  scones with clotted cream, trifles and anything with chocolate and all naturally enjoyed with a cup of tea!

One of my favorite yummy treats from England is Chocolate Tiffin. It is so delicious and quite more-ish to be honest. I love that it’s so popular you can find it anywhere. In fact, the first time I ever tasted tiffin was at a gas station in a service plaza. Perhaps it was the Belgian chocolate allegedly used in these particular bars that made me truly love it. I don’t know, I just knew then that my taste buds sang when I had a taste of the chocolate bars loaded with fruits and nuts!!

At first, I thought it was hard to make them but when Janet, my hubby’s maternal aunt, told me they were actually no bake and a simple mix and chill kind of recipe I was blown away. Something so yummy can be that easy to make? Yes, indeed!! Last summer, I made a batch which the whole family loved especially hubby and myself.

What I love with this yummy treat is that it’s customizable to one’s tastes and preferences. You can use digestives or graham crackers as biscuit base, your favorite nuts and also your favorite fruits. I added some pecans and used raisins (and a little bit of apricot) for these bars but for the holidays I will add some cranberries for that sweet-tangy contrast and some pop of color. So, have it your way! Enjoy these delightful no bake goodies!
