What is the difference between Tiffin and rocky road?

The difference between rocky road and tiffin recipes is typically down to how the chocolate mixture binds together. Some tiffin recipes use condensed milk and cocoa powder to hold it all together and then add chocolate on top. Whereas, Rocky road is typically made using melted chocolate and syrup to hold it all together. We prefer this way, so our tiffin is made in a similar way.
