Step 1

For the peanut butter filling, place all the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat and melt together, stirring constantly, until nice and runny.

Step 2

Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10–15 minutes.

Step 3

Once slightly cooled, pour your mixture into a silicone, square ice-cube tray and transfer to the freezer to set for a minimum of one hour or until completely firm.

Step 4

When you’re ready to assemble the ‘Snickers’ bites, melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring as you go, until thick and creamy and set aside to cool slightly.

Step 5

Remove one of the frozen peanut fillings from the mould and, using tongs, a spoon or even your fingers, dip it in the melted chocolate and then place on a wire rack and quickly top with the chopped peanuts and a pinch of salt.

Step 6

Repeat with the remaining filling pieces, working quickly before the chocolate completely sets.

Step 7

Transfer to the fridge for 20 minutes to chill and firm before enjoying. These bites will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to seven days or in the freezer for up to three months.
