A mix of sweet and sour with crunchy biscuits. Almonds and sour cherries all held together with a dark milk chocolate ganache flavoured with amaretto. The tiffin is quick and easy to make. It requires no cooking, but do allow setting time.
Place the butter and syrup into a pan over a low heat.
Break up the chocolate and add to the pan. Turn off the heat. Leave for a few minutes to melt, then stir until completely combined.
Place the biscuits in a large bowl and bash with the end of a rolling pin until they are in various sized pieces with a few crumbs. Alternatively, you could use a plastic bag, but I prefer not to use plastic when I can get away with it.
Toast the almonds in a dry frying pan until golden, if you haven't done so already, and stir into the biscuits along with the sour cherries or sour cherry chocolates, if using.
Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the biscuits and stir until everything is well coated.
Pour into a 20 or 22cm buttered square pan and leave in a cool place for a couple of hours to set.
Cut into whatever sized slices you like or break haphazardly with your hands.
You'll get thicker or thinner slices depending on what size pan you use.Please note: calories and other nutritional information are per serving. They're approximate and will depend on exact ingredients used.
