Per 100g:

Ingredients

  • 225g white chocolate, chopped
  • 350g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids), broken into pieces
  • 200g salted peanuts

Method

  1. 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.
  2. Stir the peanuts into the dark chocolate.
  3. Spread out on a baking paper-lined baking sheet, so that the peanuts form a single layer.
  4. 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.
  5. Set in the fridge for about 1 hour. Break the bark into large pieces.
