A sweet treat with a protein punch.

I created these delights while in the middle of a tramp, eating dark chocolate and wishing I hadn’t eaten all of my peanut butter so I could’ve combined the two for the ultimate snack. This led to the brainwave of pre-making something that held the magic of both foods, with a little extra sweetness. Ice block trays are the perfect mould, and they take just 20min to create.

Prep time: 20min
Serves: One-two
Cost: $5-6

170g dark chocolate
Crunchy peanut butter
Thick honey (helps for the chocolate to set around it)

Boil water in a small pot then place a metal bowl with the chocolate inside on top to slowly melt. Stir constantly to prevent burning.

Once melted and gooey, take off heat and fill each hole on the tray a third full.

Spoon in a small amount of peanut butter on top of the chocolate, and place a little honey on top of that. The more centred it is, the easier it will be for the chocolate to cover and set around it.

Finally, fill to the top with the rest of the chocolate and then pop it into the fridge overnight to set.
