Chocolate and peanut slice

It’s market season again. So I made a chocolate and peanut butter slice to make the hours bearable šŸ˜›
There is just something about peanut butter that I find irresistible. Not as-is – peanut butter sandwiches are gross. But satay, cookies, slices…it’s all so addictive.
This recipe I found in one of mum’s cookbooks. It’s cheap, easy to make and isn’t something you have to eat quickly before it goes stale/off.

400g white chocolate melts
400g dark chocolate melts
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

I’m not a fan of dark chocolate so I usually replace it with milk chocolate in recipes. But I think dark chocolate is necessary in this recipe – it balances out the white chocolate.
So start up with melting the chocolate (melt the different types seperately). I do not recommend doing it in the microwave. That’s just asking to burn it. Fill up a saucepan with boiling water and put a heatproof bowl (like pyrex) on top, making sure that the water does not touch the bowl. Put the chocolate in the bowl and melt over a low heat, stirring it as you go. Once the chocolate is melted, let it sit for at least five minutes.
Put the peanut butter into the white chocolate and stir until it’s evenly combined. Then get a tray lined with baking paper and alternately blob on white and dark chocolate. Then get a knife and swirl it through, creating a ripple marble effect.
Let it set at room temperature for a few hours (maybe put in fridge if it’s a hot day). Cut it up into bit size and then done. Simple and yummy.
