¼ tsp vanilla extract
250g self-raising flour
pinch of salt
40g white chocolate, melted
40g dark chocolate, melted


– Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk with a hand mixer, until light and creamy.

– Add the egg and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.

– Repeat the process with the other portion of dough.

– Place them both in the fridge for 30 minutes.

– Take them out of the fridge and remove the top layer of clingfilm from the dark chocolate dough. Remove all teh clingfilm from the white chocolate dough and place it on top of the dark chocolate dough.

– Use a sharp knife to trim the sides to form a neat rectangle. Then, slice into 3 equal portions lengthways.

– Stack these portions on top of one another. Wrap in clingfilm and place them back in the fridge for 3 minutes.

– Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C with a fan.
