Choc, PB and Jelly
by Collette White | 27 February, 2019
Good Afternoon friends! I hope this finds you all well. I am finally putting this recipe up! I am terribly sorry to have taken so long, I know I teased you all with a photo quite a few weeks ago. This recipe came about when a lovely neighbour gifted me some homemade jam and I had a pile of dark chocolate I wanted to use that I had recently bought and I forgot what for (besides to eat of course!) … so I thought I would put a little twist on the ol’ PB and JELLY and add some Chocolate to it. It’s super easy, a little cheating when everything is ‘bought’ and completely scrumptious! My family LOVED this like crazy, it disappeared so quickly from the freezer. I hope you enjoy it as much as they did! Let me know!
340g dark chocolate
5 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
extra good pinch salt
4 tablespoons jam
Line a large cookie style tray with baking paper and set aside.
Melt 170g of chocolate and spread on the tray. Use a spatula to make the layer nice and thin. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes or until set.
In a small bowl mix the peanut butter and maple syrup well.
Remove the tray of chocolate from the fridge.
Use a spatula to spread the peanut butter and maple as evenly as you can over the chocolate. * see notes for tips
Next, sprinkle the salt over the peanut butter mixture.
Then, spread the jam on top. * see notes for tips
Lastly, melt the remaining 170g of chocolate and drizzle over the top.
Place in the freezer for at least half an hour before breaking into shards.
- I found the PB and Maple a little fiddly to spread so I put hot water in a cup and kept dunking my spatula in it, this helped greatly
- I used a teaspoon to put the jam on in dollops and then roughly swirled it around, it really doesn’t need to be perfect to taste great!
- You can store this in the fridge (in a container), however, my family preferred it in the freezer. If you aren’t sure, freeze half and fridge half to decide!
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
