Recipe from the cookbook The Best Ever Chocolate. This dessert requires no cooking apart from warming the cream, and is extremely east to make. It is particularly good served with crisp cookies and makes a superb finale to a dinner party menu.

Chocolate Rum Cream



Chocolate Rum Cream Recipe:

Recipe Type: Puddings, Creams and Custards, Chocolate, Dessert
Yields: 6 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 10 min


Ingredients:

3.5-ounces semi-sweet chocolate, broken into pieces
3/4 cup light cream
2 tablespoons rum
1 1/4 cups whipping cream
1 tablespoon powdered sugar (confectioners' sugar), sifted
Shaved Chocolate


Preparation:

In a small, heavy-bottom pan over low heat, add the chocolate pieces and light cream; heat very gently until the chocolate has melted. Stir until smooth, then remove from the heat and let cool. Learn different techniques for How To Melt Chocolate.

Once the chocolate has cooled, stir in the rum; set aside.

Pour the whipping cream into a large bowl and, using an electric mixer, whip until thick but not stiff. Carefully whisk in the powdered sugar and cooled chocolate mixture into the whipped cream. Take care not to over whisk.

Spoon the mixture into 6 individual serving dishes or glasses, cover with plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.

NOTE: this dessert looks particularly attractive served in matching tall glasses. You can also use coffee cups or ordinary dessert dishes would work just as well.

To serve, make the chocolate shavings and sprinkle them carefully over the creams before serving.

Makes 6 servings.
