Hints & Tips
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. Photo from

chocolate, broken into pieces
1 1/4 cups
1 tablespoon powdered sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons rum
In a small, heavy-bottom pan over low heat, add the chocolate 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.
Pour the whipping cream into a large bowl and, using an electric mixer, whip until thick
but not stiff. Carefully whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture into the whipped cream. NOTE: 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.
