While Pottering About At Home In Norfolk

Time For A Choccy Fix

with 3 comments

This is a recipe that I’ve torn out of some magazine somewhere along the line and the photo on the page caught my eye this morning while rummaging through the “collected” binder, looking for something chocolatey but a bit different to make this week.  It looks delicious, all marbled and swirly with the two chocolates and peanut butter creating almost a piece of artwork.  Can you tell I’m smitten?

😀

If I do get it made as planned then I’ll post some photos and taste results.

  • 400g White Chocolate
  • 400g Plain Chocolate
  • 150g Crunchy Peanut Butter

1)  Grease and line a 20.5 x 30.5 x 2.5 cm (8x12x1) baking pan.

2)  Melt the white chocolate on the lowest microwave setting – 20 -30 seconds at a time, stirring after each until completely melted and smooth.  Melt the plain chocolate in a separate bowl in the same way.

3)   Add the peanut butter to the white chocolate and stir well until smooth, heating again for 15-20 seconds on the lowest microwave setting if needed.

4)  Drop alternate spoonfuls of each chocolate into the prepared pan, then tap the pan to level the mixture.  Drag a skewer or knife through both chocolates to create a marbled effect.

5)  Tap the pan again to level the mixture and then chill in the frig for about 3 hours until very firm.  Turn out onto a board and use a sharp knife to cut into squares or fingers of your desired size.  Smaller is better as this is fairly “rich”.
