No-bake Chocolate Tiffin Recipe

“Chocolate Tiffin is my favourite thing to bake from my British side. This recipe originates from my mum’s grandmother. It reminds me of when we drive from my grandma’s to my aunt’s, which is quite a few hours. We pack slices and often finish them within the first few hours! I love the texture.” – Georgia Bisset, British-South African

Makes approximately 12 servings



  • ½ cup margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup

  • 2 Cadbury chocolate bars
  • 50g cut raisins
  • 200g semi-sweet biscuits (or shortbread), crumbled


  1. Mix together margarine, caster sugar, syrup, raisins, drinking chocolate and biscuits. Press the mix into a tin.
