Salted Caramel & Salted Pretzel Tiffin

Hey everyone :)


Someone I work with has recently been bring in some kind of salted pretzel tiffin made by Tesco - it's those little bitesize party ones you get in a party bag and it's amazing! It got me thinking that I could make something like it - so after searching on Google for half an hour - I came across this amazing recipe - which I have tweaked a little:

Ingredients (for base):
200g dark chocolate
2 tablespoons golden syrup
100g butter
125g digestive biscuits
135g salted pretzels

salted caramel (either make your own or Tesco do a jar/bottle of it)

Ingredients (for topping):
200g milk chocolate
2 teaspoons golden syrup
25g butter
2 tablespoons whole milk

Method:
1. Line a 20 x 20 baking tin (like a brownie tin, preferably non-stick) with baking parchment. I also spray the sides with that oil spray or non-stick baking spray if you have it.
2. Either in the microwave (but do short bursts) or over a pan of simmering hot water melt the dark chocolate, golden syrup and butter.
3. While the chocolate is melting - use a food processor or a bag and rolling pin and smash up the digestive biscuits.
4. Similarly with the pretzels bash them up too but leave some chunky bits.
5. Once the chocolate is melted, dump in the digestive crumbs and the pretzel crumbs and mix until all coated in the chocolate.
6. Tip into the baking tin and smooth out so even.
7. This step is purely optional but I got a jar of salted caramel and a teaspoon and took big dollops and just plopped it into random places and pushed it down into the mix. I think I did about 9 blobs.
8. Set aside to start cooling down.

9. Get a fresh bowl and add the topping ingredients - so milk chocolate, golden syrup and butter and put back above the simmering water.
10. Once melted add the milk and it should go lovely and glossy.
11. Tip over the base mixture in the tin and shake the tin gently from side to side to help the mixture spread. If needed us a spatula/spoon to help it to the edges.
12. Cover with cling film loosely and pop in the fridge.

Note: If you feel uncomfortable about putting it in fridge still quite warm just leave out till its cooled down and then put it in. I never have much other food in the fridge so it doesn't bother me.






Let me know in the comments if you have made something similar or tried the Tesco variation.
