This is a fantastic way or using up any stray bits of chocolate you may have leftover from Easter  if you have any chocolate left that is! It is really moreish and absolutely great to give as gifts as it looks and tastes good and it can be really easily popped in bags. This is really a base recipe that you can change up to suit whats in your cupboard. It looks so fancy and yet could easily be made by kids, with adult supervision. Who doesn’t love a recipe like that? I know, I do! 😀 I hope you all had a lovely Easter and cooked and baked lots of yummy things.

  • Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate in the same way as the white chocolate then spread all over the hardened white chocolate in an even layer so that all the white is being covered by dark chocolate.
  • Scatter the chopped after eights all over the top while the dark chocolate is still melted and gently press the pieces down into the chocolate.
