My gluten free, easy peasy take on the the British lunchbox fav!!!!

? I got in contact with Nairn’s because I tried these biccies & fell in love.

  1. I instantly thought “these need sandwiching with buttercream & dunking in choc”. ???
  2. LOADS of you say you don’t think your good at baking (lies I’m sure ?) or don’t have the time. Well, problem solved… the biscuits are ready to go & they are twice as nice with Nairns!!

This is literally ALL YOU NEED. 5 very basic ingredients!!

Not going to lie, its difficult not the scoff the lot at this stage… waiting for the chocolate to set is 10 mins of torture haha!!

No Bake Biscuit Break Bars

My take on the British Lunchbox Classic – but twice as nice with Nairn's 😉
Prep Time30 minutes
Servings: 16 bars


  • 2 Box of Nairn’s Biscuit Breaks - Oats & Chocolate Chip
  • 150 g of Spread - works better than a hard block of butter for this recipe
  • 300 g of Icing Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 500 grams Your Favourite Chocolate


  • Put the spread, icing sugar and & cocoa powder into a bowl and mix until completely smooth.
    >Takes approx. 30 seconds with an electric whisk but you could also just use a spoon if you haven’t got a whisk to hand!
  • Take 2 Nairn’s biscuits. Spread 1 tbsp of buttercream on the underside of one biscuit and then sandwich the other biscuit ontop. Repeat for all your biscuits!
    >Tip: to get the signature sandwich look, don’t spread your buttercream to the very edge of the biscuit (leave about half a cm around the outside).
  • Carefully melt half of your chocolate.
    >Tip: Heat a large pan with approx. 1 inch of water until simmering, not boiling!! Place a bowl ontop of the pan (make sure the base of the bowl isn’t touching the water). Break the chocolate into small squares and place into the bowl. Once the chocolate is almost melted, remove the bowl from the heat and stir stir stir until its fully melted!
  • Dip the sides of each biscuit sandwich into the chocolate. Place on a wire rack and put into the fridge for 10 mins to set.
  • Melt the rest of your chocolate. Dip the top and bottom of each biscuit sandwiches into the chocolate, place on the wire rack and into the fridge until fully set.
  • Eat!!!!!
