cacao and peanut butter bark

Rosie and Dillon have a fabulous blog and have shared with us this great recipe. This is a beautifully rich raw cacao slab, with a creamy peanut butter swirl. Indulge yourself with a nutritious treat, or surprise a friend with a homemade present this Christmas! Super quick and easy.

Peanut Swirl
  • 1.5 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1.5 tbsp. cacao butter
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. chopped peanut (optional)
  1. In a bain-marie, melt the cacao butter for the chocolate & peanut butter swirl until completely liquid
  2. In the meanwhile, in a small bowl mix together peanut butter, melted cacao butter and maple syrup. Set aside.
  3. Take the bowl off of the pan and whisk in the cacao, maple syrup and salt until smooth. Taste and sweeten with more maple syrup if necessary.
  4. Pour onto the waxy side of a sheet of baking paper/greaseproof paper, spreading with a spoon or spatula into a rectangle slab
  5. Now swirl in the peanut butter mixture with a fork, spoon or skewer.
  6. If topping with peanut, spread them on top of the slab before the chocolate sets

Made this recipe couple of hours ago and devoured it. Divine! Only thing is it melts quite quickly upon contact with my hands. Not sure if l should use more cocoa butter for a harder set. Should the chocolate be stored in the freezer?
Ps. Used honey instead of maple syrup.
