Its ideal for children as you can customise what you want with it; and then they can contribute what they want in it. The first time I made it i followed the reciepe to the letter and then the second time i made it i decided that i'd customise it a bit more and so i made it with a white chocolate base with hazelnuts and walnuts and so; using a little less butter because of the content in the chocolate itself. Then; after that layer i used a layer of plain chocolate with marshallows and hazelnuts which worked really well. When putting the white chocolate in first you need to leave it in the fridge for like 20/30 minutes to let it set a bit before the plain chocolate goes ontop.
This is also great for kids because it means that they can input into what goes into it and you can change it alot so; if you have an allergy to nuts then you can take the nuts out and put fruit in or something else that you fancy that doesn't melt or anything. I found that hazelnuts and marshmallows worked well just swirled through and so when you bite into it you just get a surprise if you hit a marshmallow or a hazelnut.


Great reciepe and easy to follow and make. Very Yummy
