Healthier Christmas rocky road or tiffin

A delicious Christmas rocky road – or tiffin – recipe that’s full of festive flavour and ingredients. It’s not exactly healthy but it’s definitely healthier than your average slice of rocky road and I’ve made it with vegan ingredients as well so my whole family were very happy with this.

  • 100 g dark vegan chocolate
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 175 g dairy free spread or butter
  • 325 g biscuits crushed (I used vegan cinnamon biscuits but digestives and rich tea biscuits work well if you're not vegan)
  • 100 g mixed nuts and seeds chopped (I used almonds and pumpkin seeds)
  • 50 g mixed peel
  • 75 g dried cranberries
  • 50 g raisins
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds optional

  1. Grease a 20 x 30cm dish and line with baking paper.
  2. Melt the maple syrup, butter and chocolate together. You can either do this in a tightly fitting heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water or in the microwave. If you opt for the microwave take it out and stir every 30 seconds and be very careful of the heat.
  3. Place all the other ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine.
  4. Pour over the chocolate mixture and stir well.
  5. Transfer to your prepared dish, allow to cool and then put in the fridge overnight to firm up. You can speed this process up by putting it in the freezer for an hour.
  6. Once set cut into slices, place in an airtight container and store in the fridge.
