  • 250 g dark chocolate minimum 70% cocoa solids
  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 200 g roasted shelled hazelnuts
  • 200 g Digestive biscuits, roughly chopped
  • 150 g figs chopped
  • 200 g white chocolate


  • Grease and line a 20cm square tin
  • Melt the dark chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring until well combined.
  • Fold in 150g of the hazelnuts, digestives and figs.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and press down firmly to remove any air bubbles, put in the fridge and leave to set for about 30 minutes
  • Melt the white chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  • Pour it over the chilled tiffin and spread evenly with a spatula or back of a spoon.
  • Sprinkle over the remaining 50 g of chopped hazelnuts.
  • Return to the fridge to set before cutting in to small pieces to serve.


The figs can be replaced with other dried fruits, dried cherries would be a great choice.
Instead of chopping the figs, cut them with scissors, it is much easier.
In the USA, you can replace the  Digestives with Graham Crackers.
