Tiffin is a British tea time treat made from crushed biscuits, butter and chocolate. It usually has dried fruit in too but I wanted to change mine a little.

I’ve taken away the dried fruit and added cherries instead. First I planned to add glace cherries but I thought that they were too similar to dried fruit. I didn’t want to use fresh cherries either as it wouldn’t have been the texture I was looking for. So I went for frozen cherries. Once defrosted the cherries are a lot softer and they give the right amount of fruitiness to these Chocolate Cherry Tiffin squares. We all know how well cherries and chocolate go together!

These are the perfect little chocolatey treat with that cup of tea or coffee!

Chocolate Cherry Tiffin

Servings 18 squares


  • 200 g milk chocolate
  • 60 g butter
  • 200 g frozen cherries
  • 300 g digestives
  • 200 g milk chocolate for on top


  1. Defrost your cherries in a sieve so that any excess liquid will drain away. Once they are fully defrosted cut them in halves.
  2. Crush your digestive biscuits. You can blitz them in a food processor or just put them in a food bag and bash them with a rolling pin. I used a rolling pin as this gives you some larger pieces of biscuit left in.
  3. Over a bain marie gently melt 200g of milk chocolate and the butter. Once fully melted stir in the crushed biscuits and chopped cherries until well combined.
  4. Line a dish (mine was 30cm x 15cm) with grease proof paper. Tip in the biscuit and chocolate mixture and press it down into the dish.
  5. Melt the other 200g of milk chocolate over a bain marie and then pour it over the biscuit mixture using a spatula to spread it out evenly over the top. Place your dish in the fridge to set. Once it is set all you have to do is slice and enjoy!
