Let Her Eat Cake: Chocolate Orange Tiffin

Call it what you like, tiffin, fridge cake, no-bake brownies, anything that's chocolately, biscuity and that requires very little effort is probably one of our favourite things here at DSHQ, aside from unicorns and gin of course. These tiffin squares are super-easy and ready after just an hour's chilling time, perfect for lazy weekend 'baking', or weekday for that matter, since they won't last much past Monday...

Chocolate Orange Tiffin
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Chilling time: 1 hour
You will need:
For the tiffin:
  • 110g butter
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 4 tsp cocoa powder
  • Zest of 1/2 orange
  • 200g chocolate digestive biscuits
  • 2 heaped tbsp mixed peel
For the topping:
  • 150g good quality dark chocolate
  • Large knob of butter
  • 1 tsp golden syrup
  • Juice of 1/4 orange
  • 100g white chocolate
  • Orange zest, to decorate
Make it!
The tiffin:
  1. Place the butter, sugar, golden syrup, cocoa powder and orange zest together in a small saucepan over a medium heat.
  2. Melt together, stirring until combined. 
  3. Place the biscuits in a zip lock bag and thump with something good and heavy until crushed. (Leave the odd big chunk)
  4. Stir into the melted butter and cocoa, along with the mixed peel. 
  5. Line a 20cm square or rectangular tin with baking parchment. 
  6. Tip the mixture into the tin and press down. 
The topping:

  1. Melt the dark chocolate, butter and syrup in 20 second bursts in the microwave, or in a bain marie. 
  2. Leave to cool for a minute or so, before stirring in the orange juice. 
  3. Spoon on top of the tiffin and spread evenly.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in the same way.
  5. Drizzle or pipe onto your tiffin in whichever pattern you like, and grate over a sprinkling of orange zest. 
  6. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour to set. 
  7. Cut into slices and try not to eat the whole thing in one evening...
