Festive Vegan Tiffin
“You don’t need to be a good cook or love baking to make delicious treats at Christmas to share with friends and family. A Christmas tiffin requires no baking and is probably one of the easiest sweet treats to make. It works perfectly as a more sustainable gift to save buying someone something new or to take over to a loved one’s house as a sign of your appreciation. Plus it’s perfect to make after the big day to use up all the chocolate you’ve inevitably collected. Everyone I’ve given this to has said it’s their new favourite, so give it a try.” – Madeleine Olivia

Lightly oil a 20cm square brownie tin with coconut oil and line with parchment paper.
Crush up your Lotus biscoff into small pieces in a bowl (I used my hands).
Melt the coconut oil/vegan butter, maple syrup, brown sugar and cocoa powder together in a pan.
Pour in the melted mix into the biscoff along with the vanilla extract, cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest, and mix together.
Spoon into the brownie tin and pack in and smooth down with the back of a spoon.
Melt your vegan chocolate either in the microwave or over a bowl of boiling water on the stove, and pour over the tiffin mixture in the brownie tin.
Place in the fridge to set (around 2 hours). Once set, dip a knife into boiling hot water and slice into 8-10 squares.
