300g dairy-free white chocolate (try Sweet William White Chocolate Block or Bonvita Rice Milk Milk Chocolate Bar)
Your favourite dairy-free chocolate spread (try Sweet William brand, or Whittakers dark choc block)
2 tablespoons crushed peanuts
ice trays or chocolate moulds
pot of boiling water
Boil a pot of hot water in order to "double boil" the white chocolate - this will prevent the chocolate from burning as it would if you melted it in a microwave.
Place 300g of Sweet William white chocolate into the second pot and place pot in the boiling water
Place around 2 tablespoons of crushed peanuts into a bowl to the side.
Trickle a few peanuts on the bottom of ice cube trays (not too many)
As the white chocolate is melting, start scooping small portions (around 1/2 tsp) of Sweet William chocolate spread and place in the ice cube trays (note: if you make the chocolate clumps too big, you will have trouble getting them out of the tray once they are set)
Once the white chocolate is melted, pour over the ice cube trays and spread chocolate evenly across (this is the most time consuming part depending on how well presented you want them to be)
Sprinkle tops with a few more crushed peanuts and put in the fridge to set for around 45 minutes. (You can take them out within around 30 mins but 45 mins ensures they set firmly, so they don't break when taking them out of the trays. Or, for a more 'instant' way, try putting them in the freezer.)
Remove and serve.
This recipe can easily be adapted for dark chocolate. Try adding different crushed nuts, or shredded coconut for variety. Share This:
