No-bake Chocolate Delights
4.5 oz butter, chopped
2 cups caster sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tbs cocoa powder
3 cups desiccated coconut
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
4.5 oz white chocolate melts, melted
Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Place the butter, sugar, water and cocoa powder in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.
Bring the butter mixture to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the coconut and peanut butter.
Drop 1 tablespoon of the chocolate mixture onto the lined trays. Repeat with the remaining chocolate mixture. Place in the fridge for 2-3 hours or until firm.
Place the chocolate melts in a medium heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir until the chocolate melts and is smooth. Dip a fork into the melted chocolate. Drizzle the chocolate over the delights. Serve.
