Tiffin or Rocky Road. What’s the Difference?

Generally speaking it’s the addition of marshmallows, that turns a tiffin into rocky road.

In reality they are very similar and the terms are used interchangeably.

What biscuits can be used?

I choose to use the schar spekulatius biscotti biscuits. They are easy to find in most major UK supermarkets. With a great ginger spice flavour and nice crunch to them. Making them a great option for this Christmas tiffin recipe.

Alternatively you could use any gluten free, vegan biscuit. Picking one that is already flavoured will enhance the overall flavour. Another great option would be gingerbread men. Grab the recipe for them here.
