Melt the chocolate and butter over a bain marie. Whisk together the eggs, yolks and sugar and combine with the melted chocolate/butter mixture. Next, gently fold in the flour until just combined. Set aside while you prepare the moulds
  • 250g of dark chocolate
  • 250g of unsalted butter
  • 125g of caster sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 50g of flour

For the ganache, combine the milk and peanut butter in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and pour over the white chocolate, whisking together until combined. Set aside in the fridge to cool
  • 75ml of full-fat milk
  • 60g of peanut butter
  • 100g of white chocolate chips

While the ganache is cooling, line the dariole moulds; firstly with a generous amount of butter and then cocoa powder
  • cocoa powder for dusting
  • butter for greasing

Pour the chocolate fondant mixture one third of the way up the mould, then place a small dollop of the ganache into the middle of the mix. Fill the remainder of the mould with the fondant mixture up to three quarters full. Set aside in the fridge until all the other elements are prepared
