The Food Exchange is entering the third season: Autumn. It is getting cooler and darker now but at the same time the leaves on the trees shine almost golden and enjoying this time of the year with a warm drink and something sweet is the best!
Like every month Lucy from Lucyabakes and I were looking for a topic to send each other recipes – perfect for the start of Autumn we chose “nuts” as this months topic.
Lucy gave me this recipe of a chocolate tiffin – I had never heard of such a thing before and love to learn something new. Chocolate Tiffin is a Scottish invention, dating back to around 1900. The great thing is that it is super easy to make and doesn’t even require baking!
Lucy recommended a recipe from delicious magazine for my chocolate tiffin. You can find it here – I didn’t have a suitable square form so I used a round muffin tin and I didn’t have the gold leaf sheets so I just left them out, along with the dried fruit.
What shall I say, it seems that these little treats where made in a minute – but they were also gone in a minute…they tasted so nice that they were gone in one afternoon. I think this is one of my favourite sweets from the United Kingdom so far :).
Thanks for suggesting this recipe, Lucy! I love it!
…and now let’s all head over to Lucy’s blog to see how her nutty treat turned out!
Have a great weekend.
