  • 250 g Crunchy peanut butter
  • 175 g Soft light brown sugar
  • 1 Egg Large
  • 1 tsp Ground ginger
  • 150 g Plain flour
  • 125 g Milk chocolate
  • 75 g White chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Cream the peanut butter and sugar together in a bowl (or a food processor if you're lazy like me!)
  • Mix in the egg until totally combined.
  • Add the ginger and the flour and mix well, it will be a very stiff, crumbly mixture. If using a food processor, add all the ingredients to the processor and and mix for a few seconds until you have a firm dough.
  • Grease a 15x20cm rectangle tin.
  • Press the dough into the tin and flatten using your hands or the back of a fork.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  • Leave to cool in the tin.
  • When cool, melt the milk chocolate on low in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of hot water.
  • In a separate bowl, repeat with the white chocolate.
  • Spread the milk chocolate over the traybake, then drizzle the white chocolate on top.
  • Allow to set and then cut into pieces using a sharp knife and remove from the tin.
