I was in such a rush making this for a meeting I had to get to last night. It took literally minutes though and set so fast. They were a hit! Think deconstructed dairy free Reese’s peanut butter cups.
200 grams of dairy free white chocolate (I used Sweet William which is at Coles in the health food section, many health food stores and online)
1 x 250 gram block of Whittaker’s Dark Ghana chocolate (found in Safeway and Big W)
2 teaspoons of smooth peanut butter (I use organic peanut butter that is just peanuts with no added oils, salt or sugar. If you don’t have that other peanut butter should still work)
Line a 20cm by 30cm tray with baking paper.
Break the white chocolate into bite size pieces. Place in a bowl and melt 30 seconds at a time in the microwave. Stir the chocolate each time you rest the microwave for another 30 seconds.
While the white chocolate is melting, break the dark chocolate into bite size pieces and place in a bowl and set aside.
Once the white chocolate is melted remove it from the microwave and start melting the brown chocolate in the microwave, also 30 seconds at a time and stirring in between.
While the dark chocolate is melting add the peanut butter to the white chocolate and stir well till the peanut butter melts into the chocolate. Don’t stress if there are some lumps though as it just means you will hit a pocket of creamy peanut butter here and there.
Once the dark chocolate is melted pour and spread it evenly across the lined tray. Then pour the white chocolate on top of the dark chocolate leaving gaps of dark chocolate between where you pour the white. (You just want to make sure the chocolate is spread evenly cross the pan so you get even shards). You don’t want them to be too thick or chunky). Picture the thickness of tree bark as it is peeled away from a trunk. Then drag a skewer, or the handle of a spoon through the chocolate to get a swirled effect. Pop the tray on a flat surface in the fridge to set.
Once it is set gently break it into large shards. I do this by picking it up and holding it with one hand and gently breaking one piece off at a time.
Serves: I haven’t measured the quantity of this one.
Time: Takes about 5 minutes to prepare and about 20 minutes to cool in the fridge.
