  1. Butter and line a 15-20cm tin with baking parchment. In a large saucepan, melt the butter, sugar, syrup and cocoa. Stir through the biscuits and raisins.

  2. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and press down, then smooth the top with the back of a spoon. Microwave both chocolates in short 20 second bursts, stirring frequently, until melted. Pour them over the mixture in the tin. Use a palette knife or spoon to smooth over, so it's completely coated in chocolate.

  3. Put the tin into the fridge and leave for about 2 hrs to set, or overnight. Run a kitchen knife under the hot tap then cut into squares.

Fantastic recipe although I do leave sugar out and use a third of golden syrup. ( loosely measured) Found it way too sweet the first time I made. I have a real sweet tooth as well. I freeze in batches. Wrap them in cling film and foil. I then get out when we have guests or as a weekend treat. It Fun trying different chocolate and dried fruits. Flexible base recipe that you can play with.

Absolutely yummy and very easy. I’ve made this a few times now and it goes down a treat with everyone. I’ve stuck to the recipe and it’s works brilliantly......but if, like me, you can’t help tweaking recipes I find the following also works: 1) The chocolate can be added after you’ve melted the first 4 ingredients. Let it melt slowly off heat and keep an eye on it. This just saves a bit of washing up and gives an all in one tiffin. 2) I’ve tried it with milk chocolate with hazelnut chunks, instead of half milk and half dark. It was lovely. 3) If 220g of chocolate means you’ve got to buy extra choc....don’t bother. 200g works just fine. 4) Same with biscuits....a full packet is usually 400g. The recipe is fine with 200g meaning you can save the rest of the packet for next time. 5) I’ve also made it with Oaty biscuits....lovely and light. Give it go...and enjoy

Really delicious and quick to make. Not a massive fan though of dark chocolate so next time I will probably make it with milk chocolate, like the previous review suggested, or even with white chocolate perhaps!

Easiest Tiffin recipe ever! Made this for my family and it lasted all of 5 minutes. This is now my go to recipe. Used milk chocolate only for the topping (200g) as several of the children prefer it.

This is irisistable, I made 4 X the recipe, put in the little rectangular containers you get from the Indian takeaway, so I can freeze for Christmas,if I can stop myself eating it all. BTW 3 TBS castor =14.06 g, and 3 TBS Treacle = 25g, which is useful if you want to make more at once.Bought biscuits, treacle and chocolate from Aldi, super cheap and still yummy, happy Christmas
