  1. Melt the dark and white chocolate in 2 separate heatproof bowls over pans of just-simmering water.
  2. Meanwhile, line a 30 x 20cm baking tray with baking paper, ensuring the sides are covered. Pour in the dark chocolate and tip to spread all over.
  3. Drizzle the white chocolate on top, then use a spoon to swirl together. Top with cherries and marzipan.
  4. Chill for 20 mins; freeze for 10 mins. Once cold, use the tip of a knife to crack the chocolate into shards. Will keep for up to 2 weeks in a sealed container in a cool place.
