Is it possible to have afternoon tea without chocolate?  Yes, but I think it is probably a chargeable offence in most jurisdictions.  So of course I did the right thing for our Craftapalooza afternoon tea by banking a chocolate item ahead of time – this keeps very well in the fridge, but leave it out for up to an hour before serving for best flavour.

This one is the easiest chocolate item I have ever made, but it still gets a two spoon rating just because chocolate is at least messy, and can ‘seize’ if it gets hit with water or steam in a busy kitchen – so a chocolate recipe often needs more experience just to make sure you don’t fall foul of those.

That said, I am really not good with the neat and eye pleasing part of making things, and this is very forgiving on that score.  So its well worth a try and rates very highly on the ‘looks-impressive-and-a-lot-harder-to-make-than-it-was’ scale.  : )

    Definitely have to add this one to my Christmas repertoire.

      Yes, I thought it would be a winner in the Aussie summer since there is no oven involved, and no saucepan unless you prefer it.

      I could see it wrapped up in nice cellophane bags as treat presents too – disposable is good!

    Was having an exceptionally crappy day, so thought “why wait until Christmas?” and made some this afternoon, just waiting for it to set…

      If that turns out to be a recipe you like, stay tuned for the Adventure 2017, where one I’ll be adding is the very easy chocolate fudge that is also great to enjoy at home and makes a terrific present.

      These were awesome 😁. Took some to work, where they vaporised! Definitely making some more for Christmas presents 🎄.
      The one tip I would add is “just keep stirring” when you combine the peanut butter and melted white chocolate. I wasn’t sure if it would mix in smoothly, but it eventually did.
