- Pour the dark chocolate all over the baking paper in the baking tray. Then drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the dark chocolate and drag a fork over it to create a marbled pattern.
- Scatter your nuts, fruit, and a little sea salt all over the top of the chocolate, so that it rests on top.
