Store Cupboard Tiffin

I love a good old store cupboard treat. Especially when it's as easy and versatile as tiffin!
Makes about 9-12 pieces

250g biscuits (I like the combination of 75% digestive along with 25% Bourbons) 
150g sweets (I used smarties, but anything like maltesers, chocolate raisins, Revels or Minstrels would all work well but may need chopping up slightly)
60g dried fruits of your choice (I like cranberry or raisins)
125g unsalted butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon caster sugar
 450g milk chocolate (But if you prefer white or dark they work too)

You will need a Brownie pan. Lightly grease the tin and line with a sheet of baking parchment.

Tip the digestive biscuits into freezer bag, and using a rolling pin, crush them into smallish, random sizes pieces and tip into a bowl. Add the sweets and fruit.

Tip the butter, golden syrup, cocoa powder and sugar into a small saucepan. Place over a low heat and stir constantly until the butter has melted and the mixture is thoroughly combined. 

Pour into the bowl over the crushed biscuits and stir until evenly coated.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and press into an even layer. Leave until completely cold. 

Break the chocolate into chunks and melt in a heatproof bowl either over a pan of barely simmering water or gently in the microwave in short bursts and on a low setting. Stir until smooth, spread over the tiffin base and leave until set completely.

Remove the tiffin from the pan and cut into squares using a knife that you have run under hot water to warm the blade, this makes it easier and neater to cut through the chocolate.
