This is an easy melt and mix recipe. So easy the kids can do it, or at least help. Great to have on hand for guests or to give as a gift. I've used dark and milk chocolate mixed together, but it's just as nice using one or the other, or white chocolate as well. The main thing to remember is to use good quality ingredients. This is one recipe where no name products don't really cut it. It is ready to eat after about one hour in the fridge.

Ingredients

200g dark cooking chocolate (Lindt or Plaistow)
200g milk cooking chocolate
1/2 cup roughly chopped unsalted peanuts
250g pink & white Pascall marshmallows
1 cup shredded coconut

1.Cut the marshmallows in half with kitchen scissors. Dip in water if they get sticky.

2.Break chocolate up into small single block pieces. Place in a microwave safe bowl and nuke on high for 2 minutes.

3.Stir with a spoon to combine and break up any remaining lumps.

4. Mix in marshmallows, peanuts and coconut, stirring well to combine.

5. Put a sheet of baking paper on a tray. Pour mixture on to tray and roughly arrange into a rectangle. Place in fridge for approximately an hour.

6. Cut up with a very sharp knife. I leave my to sit on the bench for about 15 minutes before I do this.

This recipe is great to experiment with. I've replaced the peanuts with pistachios and added chopped up Turkish delight and given it as a Xmas present. Next time I'm going to try adding either chopped dried pineapple or glacÚ ginger.
