Having watched the all things chocolate episode of the Great British Bake Off I was inspired to give making chocolate pots a bash. It’s a quick simple recipe that the most novice of cook can execute perfectly.
So here’s what you will need to make your own.
Ingredients (serves 4):
50g of dark chocolate – chopped (I went with 72% cocoa)
50g of milk chocolate – chopped
40g of muscovado sugar
1tsp of vanilla essence
1 punnet of raspberries
Icing sugar for dusting
Fresh mint leaves
Step 1: place the cream, muscovado sugar and vanilla essence in a pan. Gently bring to the boil while stirring and then remove from the heat.
Step 2: pour the cream, sugar and vanilla mixture over the chopped chocolate and gently stir until the chocolate combines.
Step 3: slice the raspberries and line the bottom of each of the ramekins with them.
Step 4: fill each ramekin to just under the brim with the chocolate mixture and refrigerate to allow it to set.
Step 5: garnish with raspberries, fresh mint leaves and icing sugar, and of course then sit back and enjoy your handy work.
