At Artisan Deli Market, we're all about celebrating the rich culinary traditions of the UK with a gourmet twist. Today, we're sharing a unique Chocolate Tiffin recipe that's sure to delight your taste buds.


To whip up this indulgent treat, you'll need:

  • 200g of luxury shortbread biscuits, crushed
  • 150g of unsalted butter, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons of raw honey
  • 6 teaspoons of premium cocoa powder
  • 100g of dried cranberries
  • 100g of chopped walnuts
  • 200g of dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
  • A pinch of sea salt



Step-by-Step Guide to Making Gourmet Chocolate Tiffin

  1. Prepare Your Tin: Start by lining a 20cm square tin with baking parchment.

  2. Create the Tiffin Base: In a large saucepan, gently melt the butter and honey. Once melted, stir in the cocoa powder until well combined. Add the crushed shortbread biscuits, dried cranberries, and chopped walnuts to the saucepan, ensuring they're well coated with the butter and honey mixture.

  3. Transfer to Tin: Pour this mixture into your prepared tin. Press it down firmly and smooth the top with the back of a spoon. This will form the base of your tiffin.

  4. Melt the Chocolate: Break the dark chocolate into pieces and place them in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

  5. Add the Chocolate Layer: Pour the melted chocolate over the biscuit base in the tin, making sure it's completely covered. Smooth the top with a spoon and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.

  6. Let It Set: Place the tin in the fridge for about 2 hours, or overnight, to set. Once set, cut into squares using a warm kitchen knife.
