The thick, rich and deep flavour profiles of our delish chocolate make these Christmas tiffin bites extra special. Through using walnuts, cherries and orange soaked dates this recipe is super simple to make and tastes exactly like a glass of mulled wine in a sticky, delicious bite with added crunch from the biscuits and walnuts. Feel free to swap out the walnuts for peanuts, and the biscuits for pretzels for something a little more different.

2 Bars of Doisy and Dam (your flavour choice)
4-6 Shortbread Biscuits
300g Dates, pitted and roughly chopped
250g Peanut Butter
50g Walnuts roughly chopped
50g Cherries (glacé or fresh) roughly chopped
Squeeze and zest of 1 large orange.
Add ¼ of your chopped dates into a bowl with the juice of 1 orange and microwave for 45 seconds. Allow to cool.
Melt 1 bar of Doisy and Dam Chocolate in the microwave on 30 second blasts or over a bain maire.
Once melted place in a food processer along with the rest of the pitted dates and peanut butter and blitz until a sticky paste forms – about 1-2 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and add in your shortbread biscuits breaking them up into pieces are you place in, along with your chopped cherries, orange-soaked dates, orange zest and walnuts.
Mix using your hands until the mixture is fully combined and the additional extras are uniformly distributed throughout.
Line a brownie pan with parchment paper (I use one half of mine) – transfer the mixture into the pan and either using your hands, or a glass press the mixture into a square about 3cm/ 1.5inch thick. Cover with another sheet or parchment paper and place in the fridge.
Melt the second bar of Doisy and Dam chocolate in the microwave on 30 second blasts or over a bain maire, add in 2 tbsp of water and mix until fully melted and combined.
Remove your pan from the fridge and pour the chocolate over the top of the mixture to create a topping.
Place back in the fridge until set, about 30 minutes.
Remove and cut – and enjoy.
The tiffin bars will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for about a week (if they are around that long!)
