Recipe: Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bark

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bark RecipeChocolate and Peanut Butter Bark RecipeI thought moving in with my boyfriend just before Christmas would be romantic. I pictured us putting up a Christmas tree together, decorating the flat and spending weekends walking hand-in-hand around Christmas markets. Instead, we’ve been building furniture, spending weekends unpacking and tidying and there wasn’t much time to get into the festive spirit, let alone blog.

I meant to share this recipe as a homemade Christmas gift idea but with no internet and wardrobes that needed building I just couldn’t find the time. However, if you’re like me and sick of overindulging on all the sweet treats on offer over Christmas then this easy-to-make recipe for a healthier Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bark would be perfect for you. Store it in the freezer so that it’s ready for when you fancy something sweet without overindulging and adding to the Christmas bulge.

The saltiness and crunchiness of the peanut butter next to the creamy sweetness of the ‘chocolate’, which is actually made from Bioglan Superfoods Raw Cacao… It’s just perfect. Plus, cacao is naturally high in fibre and protein, it fights fatigue and antioxidising. So, put down the chocolate selection boxes and whip up these sweet treats instead.
