1

Line the base and sides of a 15cm x 10cm tin with baking parchment. If it’s a slightly different sized tin, it doesn’t matter; you just want the tiffin to be about 3cm depth.

2

Make the bottom layer by melting the chocolate, butter and honey over a bain marie. Remove from the heat and stir in the tahini. Add in the kasha, lightly crushing them with your fingers, making sure to keep some large bits and breaking the rest up into smaller pieces. Add the figs and almonds and stir everything together well. Pour into the prepared tin and place in the freezer.

3

Make the top layer by melting the chocolate, butter and honey over a bain marie. Remove from the heat, pour over the set bottom layer and then swirl in the tahini. Do this by spooning blobs over the top and then swirling with a skewer or small sharp knife. Refrigerate for about 2 hours or until set.

4

Remove from the tin and cut up into squares, whatever size you prefer, with a serrated knife. These will keep for at least a week in a sealed container in the fridge. It freezes well too for at least a month.
