Whole Chestnuts



  1. Grease and line a 20×20 tiffin tin.
  2. Put the butter, sugar and syrup into a large saucepan and heat gently, stirring until fully melted and combined. Sift in the cocoa powder and stir until smooth.
  3. Put the biscuits into a sandwich bag, seal, and bash with a rolling pin to break them up into small pieces.
  4. Add the broken biscuits and chopped chestnuts to the pan and stir until fully coated. Tip the mixture out into the baking tray and press down firmly using the back of a spoon to ensure the tiffin squares hold together once cut.
  5. Meanwhile, pop the milk and dark chocolate into a microwaveable bowl and heat gently for 10-20 seconds at a time, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted. Be careful not to burn the chocolate here!
  6. Once melted, pour over the top of the tiffin and spread out evenly with a spoon or spatula. Place in the fridge for 2 hours or until set. Cut into equal sized squares and store in the fridge.
