Baking for Macmillan Coffee Morning: Double Chocolate Tiffin

Two baking recipes in a week? This is what happens when I don't have to go to school anymore... I turn into a house wife!! 

So as I'm sure many of you who live in the UK know, today is Macmillan Coffee Morning, a nation wide event run by Macmillan Cancer Support. Every year my school holds a coffee morning for students and parents and everyone is encouraged to bring in their own bakes. This year, since my sister is busy with planning for her GCSEs I thought I'd take a shot at baking something fun and easy for her to take into school. 

What you'll need

- 200g milk chocolate (ideally cooking chocolate, found in the baking aisle) 
- 175g dark chocolate (same as above) 
- 200g unsalted butter
- 100g raisons 
- 100g golden syrup 


Step 1

- Grease a square baking tin with butter to prevent sticking and set aside.
- Now break all of the chocolate up into small squares (this aids melting) and set aside.
- Place the biscuits into a plastic freezer bag and hit repeatedly with a rolling pin. Some will look like fine sand and others will remain in chunks. This is ideal for giving texture to your bake. 

Step 2

- Now we're ready for some action! Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a metal bowl over a pan of hot water. Ideally, bring the water to a boil and then leave on a low heat. Stir the melting mixture to ensure it doesn't burn at all! 

Step 3

- As it melts, take your crushed biscuits and raisons and place them in a large mixing bowl. Stir together to ensure the raisons are equally distributed. 

Step 4

- Once melted, pour the hot chocolate over top of the biscuit and raison mixture. 
- Using a large wooden spoon, mix together.

Step 5

- Scoop the mixture out of the bowl and into the prepared tray. Pat it down with the spoon to ensure the mixture is flat.

Step 6

- Leave in fridge until set.
