My love of peanut butter is well documented, and it’s enthusiastically shared by all the members of the Smith clan. We’re known to eat it by the spoonful as a snack. So when I’m not baking allergy-friendly food for kinder lunches, these are a yummy treat for all of us.

The shortbread itself buttery and lightly flavoured, and benefits hugely from being dipped in a sharp dark chocolate.

We’ve just enjoyed a plate of these with glasses of milk for a weekend treat, and everyone’s smiling.
