    300g Dark Chocolate

    300g Milk Chocolate

    100g Unsalted Butter

    80ml Ballycastle Country Cream

    250g Shortbread

    100g Raisins

    100g Glacé Cherries

    75g Pistachios, chopped

    100g White Chocolate

    21 x 21cm square tin (lined with greaseproof paper)


    Roughly chop the shortbread, cherries, pistachios and chocolate. Melt 200g each of the dark and milk chocolate, along with the butter, in the microwave until fully melted and combined.

    Then add the Ballycastle, shortbread pieces, raisins, 50g pistachios and 75g cherries and stir until fully combined. Spoon into the prepared tin and smooth the top.

    Melt the remaining dark, milk and white chocolate in separate bowls in the microwave. Spoon the 3 melted chocolates on the top of the tiffin then swirl together.

    Sprinkle over the remaining pistachios and cherry pieces, then leave to chill for 2-3 hours. When fully hardened, slice into 12 squares or bars and wrap as a gift.
