Triple Chocolate Peanut Slab Biscuits

There’s something special about spotting the iconic gold wrapper of a Whittaker’s Peanut Slab as you wander around the supermarket aisles – and even more so when they’re sitting in your shopping trolley!

Whether you love that they’re densely packed with peanuts or that feeling you get you bite into what’s certainly quite a slab of milk chocolate, there’s no denying they’re memorable for all the right reasons.

Luckily these Triple Chocolate Peanut Slab Biscuits are on the same page as their chocolate namesake – memorable, decadent and devilishly moorish. Imagine a soft, cakey chocolate biscuit stuffed to breaking point with chunks of chopped Peanut Slabs, topped with a light drizzling of milk, white and dark chocolate. Sounds good, huh?

L&P White Chocolate Cupcakes

l-and--cupcakes

There’s no denying that I love trying new chocolates – whether it’s Whittaker’s peanut butter or raspberry and white chocolate, or Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations I’m all over it in a heartbeat. So when I heard Whittaker’s was launching L&P chocolate I couldn’t wait to lay my hands on a block.

Luckily,  I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest and over the past week have been busy scheming how I could use it in some baking. To be honest, it wasn’t hard to come up with something – cupcakes were the obvious choice! A bit of pondering and planning later, I was all set to make these L&P cupcakes a reality.

So what are they exactly? A fluffy, moist L&P cupcake topped with rich L&P chocolate buttercream complete with popping pieces. Yip, there’s L&P baked into the cupcake to give them an extra hit of that classic L&P taste – and ensure the icing doesn’t totally steal the show!
