4 oz. butter
2 oz. sugar
2 Tbsp. golden syrup (substitute light corn syrup or agave if needed)
2-3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
10 oz. crushed digestive biscuits (or graham crackers)
4 oz. mix of raisins, finely chopped dried cherries and finely chopped dried apricots
6 oz. dark chocolate
2 oz. milk chocolate
1 Tbsp. coconut oil or shortening

Melt together the first three ingredients. Add cocoa power, biscuits and dried fruit mix. Mix well and put in foil- or paper-lined 9-by- 13-inch quarter sheet pan and chill.

Melt chocolate and coconut oil together and pour over pan.

Cool at room temperature and cut into two-inch squares. Makes 24 squares.

Tiffin Squares are a British favorite. So beloved, in fact, that the groom’s cake for Prince William was made from Tiffin!
