Another twist you can create when making tiffin, is to add oreos. We all know and love the cookies and cream flavoured snack, so what better than to add it to your tiffin recipe?

7. Malted Biscuit Balls Tiffin

Sometimes all you want is a nice soft tiffin and some cookies simply cannot offer that – they are far too crunchy.

Instead, this recipe used malted milk biscuit balls, coated in chocolate that offer an alternative to use as the crunchy base for your tiffin. You can even add them for decoration on top!

This recipe is also great if you don’t have any spare cookies lying around but you do have these malted treats!

  • Difficulty: Easy

8. White Chocolate Pecan Tiffin

White chocolate is a great alternative to regular milk chocolate – which let’s be honest can get a little boring sometimes.

Using white chocolate instead will create a sweeter flavor that can be balanced out with pecan nuts to create the perfect blend of the two flavors that are a treat to the tastebuds.

This type of tiffin is a little more ‘grown-up’ – a little more mature if you will. The flavourings complement one another and intertwine into pure bliss.

  • Difficulty: Easy

9. Honeycomb Tiffin

Honeycomb Tiffin

Another great twist on your classic tiffin tray bake, is the addition of honeycomb. This sweet and crunchy treat not only adds to the flavor but also the texture. You can add it with your cookie base, or as an alternative for it.

The honeycomb will give it a unique flavor and who doesn’t love something a little different? Honeycomb works perfectly in tiffin because it is sweet, crunchy and complements the chocolate texture of the baked good.

  • Difficulty: Easy

10. Cherry Chocolate Tiffin

Nothing complements the taste of chocolate better than cherries do. If you or whoever you are baking for doesn’t like raisins, a good substitute are cherries! They add a hint of berry flavor to the chocolate, making the treat richer and more indulgent.

This will also make your tiffin a little more festive tasting – perfect for the holidays! Again, sometimes raisins just don’t hit the spot – but cherries are guaranteed to be there every single time!

  • Difficulty: Easy

11. Mint Chocolate Tiffin

Although it is not for everyone, some are quite partial to a little bit of mint chocolate – and if you are one of those people then this is the perfect tiffin recipe for you!

A modern twist on the classic tiffin, adding mint will elevate your flavoring and bring something new to the table.

It is a niche flavor but a beautiful flavor nevertheless. If you are using a mint chocolate that is green, it adds a vibrance to the tray bake, a dash of color that would also be perfect for the festive season!
