And finally I made it last month. I made this for my friend who is going to be gifted with a beautiful kid soon. 


This is one of Nigella lawson's recipe and I was crazy to try this recipe as soon as I saw that. This chocolate has a little salty taste with some crunch from the chocolate wafers and a little nutty taste from the roasted peanuts. This one was a total heaven and you will get lost each time you bite in to it. I modified this recipe as per my taste.

So here you go to the step by step recipe with pictures..

Recipe Source: Nigella lawson
Ingrediants:

Dark Chocolate Chips-200 gms ( I used a total 300 gms of Semi Sweet Dark Chocolate Chips)
Milk Chocolate Chips-100 gms
Roasted Unsalted Peanuts-250 gms
Honey-4 tblspn
Kitkat / Wafer Covered with Chocolate- 100 gms ( I used two of  those 10 rs packet)
Butter-125 gms
Salt - ¼  tsp

Method:

In a mixing bowl add peanuts, broken kitkat, salt and mix well.Set this aside for a moment.

Take chocolate chips, butter, honey in a sauce pan and heat it gently till melted.

Now add the peanut mixture in the melted chocolate and mix well till combined.

Put this in a tin foil( I lined my tin with plastic wrap / cling film) and spread evenly.

Chill this in the fridge for 2 hours. Now remove it and cut into small pieces.

Please keep this refrigerated till ready to serve..
