As everyone who knows me know, I have a serious sweet tooth (although not as bad as when I was younger). This means that I always have a very big craving for something sweet after my meals, especially dinner. It doesn’t have to be anything big, something like a piece of dark chocolate or peanut butter toast will suffice – I just need something. Sometimes we (Matthew) might go across the street to buy a chocolate bar, which is obviously not what you want to (or should) have every night…So we decided to try making our own mini desserts, and came across this recipe by michelin chef Nick Nairn.
All you need is (love):
- 120ml double cream
- 120ml full cream milk
- 175g orange infused dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa solids)
- 1 egg
Can’t be bothered explaining the recipe, but you can check it out here. It’s quick to make and doesn’t require many ingredients at all, but you do have to wait 4 hours for the mixture to set. We didn’t bother with the Drambuie cream in the recipe, and if you’re not a fan of orange you can always do it with plain chocolate or any other flavour. I want to try mint next.
As the portions are quite big, we poured the mixture in small shot glasses instead. It’s rich enough to quench my thirst for something sweet, and small enough to not feel too guilty about it. Perfect. 🙂
Really feel like chocolate now…
