Nick’s Easy Tiffin Recipe

If you’re in search of a quick and easy Easter recipe idea, our Executive Chef Nick’s classic tiffin is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.

“This delightful treat holds a special place in my family’s heart. It’s become a bit of an Easter tradition in our home to throw together the remnants from the pantry, and create a rich and moreish chocolate bar that tastes unique each and every time.” – Nick Hodges, Executive Chef.

The beauty of the tiffin is there’s no baking involved. Forget about complicated techniques or managing oven temperatures! Simply create a delicious mixture with all of your ingredients, pour into a mould, and refrigerate. The perfect Easter recipe idea that the little ones can get involved with in the kitchen.
