• 100g each of dark and milk chocolate, finely chopped

• 30g of butter, softened

1. Line a 20cm square baking tin with parchment paper.

2. Put the sour cherries and blueberries in a pan with the cordial and 30ml of water and bring to a simmer, then remove from the heat and set aside to cool and soak for at least an hour.

3. Pour the condensed milk into a pan, and heat until just coming to a simmer, stirring. Put the dark and milk chocolate in a bowl with the butter and pour over the hot condensed milk.

4. Stir until you have a smooth glossy mix.

6. Tip it into the lined baking tin and spread out with the back of a spoon. Melt the white chocolate, then drizzle it all over the surface.

Chill in the fridge for at least three hours until solid. Cut into 16 squares and serve.
