Makes: 16

Ingredients

100g LOVE Life Mixed Nuts
150g Cooks' Homebaking Milk Chocolate, broken into pieces
150g Cooks' Homebaking Dark Chocolate, broken into pieces
50g Cooks' Homebaking White Chocolate, broken into pieces
50g LOVE Life Raisin Mix
2 tbsp Cooks' Homebaking Honeycomb or Fudge Pieces
½ tsp sea salt crystals

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment. Tip the nuts into a roasting tin and place in the oven to toast for 7-10 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool before roughly chopping.

2. Meanwhile, put each type of chocolate into a separate heatproof bowl. Slowly melt each one over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water.

3. Spoon a generous teaspoon of each chocolate in a puddle on the lined sheets, then swirl the chocolates together using a skewer to make a pattern, each approx 6cm diameter.

4. Repeat until all the chocolate is used. Sprinkle each puddle with some nuts, raisins, honeycomb and sea salt and leave to set. Once firm, pack into a pretty box. (The puddles will keep in an airtight box in a cool place for up to 2 weeks.)
