This white chocolate tiffin recipe is mouth-wateringly delicious and so simple to make! A tasty mixture of crushed biscuits, cherries, coconut and white chocolate, Great British Bake Off winner Jo’s tiffins are the ultimate sweet treat


  • 250g digestive biscuits
  • 60g shredded, dried or desiccated coconut
  • 60g glace cherries, washed, dried and halved
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 2tbsp golden syrup
  • 2tbsp malted drink powder (such as Horlicks or Ovaltine)
  • 1tbsp caster sugar
  • 500g white chocolate
  • You will need:
  • 30 x 23cm baking tin with a depth of about 4cm. Lightly greased and with a sheet of baking parchment


  • Tip the digestive biscuits into a freezer bag and, using a rolling pin, crush them into smallish, random-sized pieces and tip into a bowl. Add the coconut and cherries.

  • Tip the butter, golden syrup, malted drink 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 white 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.

  • Cut the tiffin 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.
