  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 300ml pot double cream
  • 100g/4oz pack honeycomb Toblerone, finely chopped
  • dark chocolate curls, to decorate

Method

  1. Oil and line a 1-litre loaf tin with cling film. Put the coffee, Tia Maria or brandy, egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and stir to dissolve the coffee. Put the egg whites in a large bowl and pour the cream in another.

  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff with an electric whisk, then quickly beat the egg yolk mixture until thick and leaving a trail. Now beat the cream until it holds its shape. If you beat everything in this order, you don’t need to wash the whisks in between.

  3. Fold the cream into the coffee mixture, then carefully fold in the whites. Fold through the Toblerone and tip into the loaf tin. Lightly cover the surface with cling film. When frozen, overwrap in foil and freeze. Will keep for up to 6 weeks. You can make the chocolate curls (see video link, above, for instructions) and keep them in a airtight container or freeze.

  4. To serve, unwrap and turn onto a platter. Strip off the cling film and serve topped with the chocolate curls.

I made this for the first time a few days ago. My guests raved about it and I will definitely make it again. I used Kahlua instead of Tia Maria and used normal Toblerone. It was easy to make and tasted delicious. It is a great recipe for when you have guests because you can make it several days in advance. I suspect that this will become a firm favourite.

Amazing! It's really lovely - I used Baileys instead of Tia Maria or brandy. Would definitely recommend!

Does anybody know where Honeycomb Toblerone is sold? None of the supermarkets I've checked (Tesco, Co-op, Asda, Sainsbury, Waitrose) stock it. Will probably replace by ordinary Toblerone, as suggested by others here.

I should have added I used very finely chopped ordinary Toblerone (I've never seen a honeycomb one in Australia) and instead of faffing about making chocolate curls I just crumbled a Flake bar on top which looked fine. To Jenny who asked about the egg yolks - I had to read the recipe twice because it felt like they'd missed something to me, too. In fact. tt's just sloppy writing on behalf of the author. The recipes refers to the yolk, coffee & sugar mix as the 'egg yolk mixture' in step 2 and then calls it the 'coffee mixture' in step 3. They're one and the same thing.

Fantastic & super-easy. I often make sorbets and gelato but this recipe really appealed to me so I made it to take to a family lunch for my dads birthday. Amongst us we have a coffee-flavour-hater, a non-dessert eater, a mildly lactose intolerant and one of those people who always say 'I'll just have a tiny taste'. Every one of them took a full serve and practically licked the plate afterwards. It was delicious! I sometimes cater events for friends and colleagues and this is going to prove invaluable as a make-ahead party-pleaser.

Absolutely lovely but really simple to make, used half normal Toblerone and half Crunchie, and Kaluha since I had no Tia Maria. Went down very well as boxing day pud, great 'cos could make a few days in advance and concentrate on the main meal :-) Have had requests to make it again - winner!
