This is a very easy 'no-bake' treat that anyone can make. Dark chocolate and tahini are a match made in foodie heaven, so be warned; it won't last long!
Our chocolate tahini tiffin log is filled with crumbled digestive biscuits, luscious black cherry jam and juicy raisins, generously topped with cocoa powder - pure indulgence!
400g of dark chocolate
300g plain tahini
200g digestive biscuits
200g black cherry jam
A handful of raisins
Cocoa powder for dusting
Break chocolate and place into a heatproof bowl.
Sit over a pan of barely simmering water (a bain marie) and allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally.
Once melted, add tahini into the bowl of chocolate
Stir through the black cherry jam, biscuits (crushed) and raisins
Once fully combined, place mixture in the centre of a sheet of greaseproof paper
Roll the greaseproof paper around the mixture to form a ballotine making sure it is quite tight especially on the edges. At this stage, you can use your hands to give the tiffin a nice 'log' shape
Put the tiffin in the fridge for 2 hours to set (or overnight)
Once it is set, transfer the tiffin log onto a serving place and dust evenly with cocoa powder
Run a kitchen knife under the hot tap then cut into slices and serve
You can adjust the recipe to your liking by substituting raisins with dried apricots or cranberries, adding a shot of your favourite liquor into the mix and so on...
