A nutty winter bark recipe makes the perfect food gift for a chocoholic at Christmas.
- 539 kcals
- 35.3g (15.4g saturated)
- 47.4g (44g sugar)
- 225g white chocolate, chopped
- 350g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids), broken into pieces
- 200g salted peanuts
- Put the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring now and then, until melted. Remove from the heat. Meanwhile, in a separate heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate over another pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally in the same way.
- Stir the peanuts into the dark chocolate.
- Spread out on a baking paper-lined baking sheet, so that the peanuts form a single layer.
- Drop spoonfuls of white chocolate on top, and swirl both chocolates together using a skewer or the end of a spoon (so that it looks like tree bark). Allow to cool.
- Set in the fridge for about 1 hour. Break the bark into large pieces.
These chocolates will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks.
