Indulge your sweet tooth with this delightful recipe for ‘Chocolate Tiffany Delights.’ This recipe is very close to my heart. It was passed down to me from a dear friend and sister who was a revert to Islam. She and her husband had worked so hard throughout their lives to finally achieve financial independence and dedicate the rest of their lives to Islamic work, and they did.

Sobhan Allah, I watched them do it and was fortunate enough to be part of it. They opened up an Islamic school that I was able to teach in. They also organised weekend Arabic classes that my daughter attended. This woman had a very special soul, she hired me to cook for her so that she had more time for their Islamic work. I catered for her meetings and Islamic functions, I was fortunate enough to be able to spend time with her beautiful children and had access to their whole library full of Islamic books.

This woman was an inspiration to me. She explained that she used to make these tasty biscuit treats for their family restaurant and then years later she shared this recipe with me. She has since passed away (Raheemah Allah) so I share this recipe in memory of her and with the intention of Sadaqa Jarriyyah. (Ongoing reward for her).

What’s in it?

This no-bake treat is a perfect fusion of the beloved digestive biscuit goodness and a luscious chocolate syrup made from a harmonious blend of honey, butter, and cocoa powder. The simplicity of this recipe makes it a fantastic choice for a quick and easy dessert, and its kid-friendly nature ensures the whole family can join in the fun.

How is it made?

After pressing this delectable mixture into a tray, the pièce de résistance comes with a generous layer of melted chocolate on top. Then, when ready to be adorned with your favourite decorations and placed in the fridge for an hour to set. The result is a chewy, crunchy chocolate delight!

Whether you’re looking for a hassle-free dessert for a busy day or a delightful project to enjoy with your little ones, Chocolate Tiffany Delights is the answer to your sweet cravings.

Chocolate Tiffany Delights

This is one of the most tasty easiest chocolate biscuit desserts you can ever make. It's a huge hit in our family and there are many different ways to present it, here I have cut them into rectangles but you can easily mould this mixture into any shape you like.
This recipe is great for baking with kids because you can't go wrong.
Also, if you are watching your sugar intake, I have tried this recipe using only honey and no added sugar to the syrup and it's come out just fine but didn't need as many biscuits. So give it a try and let me know what you think.
Servings 20
Prep Time 15 minutes
Setting/Cooling Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 110 g (4 oz) butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup or honey
  • 4 tsp cocoa powder or drinking chocolate powder
  • 225 g (8 oz) crushed digestive biscuits (this is usually equivalent to 1 big packet)
  • 1 cup or 1 handful of raisins optional
  • 225 g (8 oz) Milk chocolate or dark chocolate suitable for melting
  • 225 g white chocolate or selected nuts for garnishing

Instructions

  • First, blend the biscuits in a processor then place in a mixing bowl.
  • Melt the butter, sugar, syrup/honey and cocoa powder in a saucepan on medium heat but be careful not to burn.
  • When melted and slightly frothy add the mixture to the crushed biscuits, add the raisins and mix well until combined.
  • Pour the biscuit mixture into a suitable-sized square tin that's similar to what you would use to bake a Swiss roll cake.
  • The mixture should resemble a thick, chocolaty, doughy paste. Press your paste down flat into the tin so that it's roughly at least 2 cm thick.
  • Then set aside and begin to melt the cooking chocolate to pour over the mixture in the tin. I find it best to break the chocolate up into cubes and place it in a glass mixing bowl that will sit over some boiling water in a saucepan while stirring. (I don't like the taste or smell the microwave leaves on the chocolate)
  • Then you can grate the white chocolate or chop up some nuts and sprinkle on top for garnish. (I use a potato peeler for this instead of a grater for larger flaky swirls)
  • Pop your baking tin into the fridge and leave for about 1 hour to set.
  • To serve, you can cut into about 20 square pieces if you want more generous portions or you can half these squares into rectangles for even more pieces if you want them smaller.
