Servings: Change Serving



Cook the bacon and set aside to cool.

Melt the chocolate separately over a bain marie (heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water – be careful not to overheat or let the water bubble onto the bowl).

Line a baking tray with wax paper and grease the paper.

Spread out the white chocolate first on the tray, then drizzle the dark chocolate over the white chocolate and create some fun patterns using a sosatie stick or the back of a spoon. Don’t over do it, or you will end up with a light brown mess!

While the chocolate is still warm and melted, evenly spread out the toppings.

Put the tray in the fridge to cool and break up into chunky pieces to serve!

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
