I made these a couple of nights ago with white chocolate instead of dark, and they were really tasty - not too heavy for after a big main meal either. Is the lemon curd mixture meant to set? I left mine in the fridge for about an hour and the mixture was still soft when I took them out - or does the recipe just mean that the chocolate is meant to set? Delicious anyway!

This was super quick to make and yet looks impressive.

The ratio of lemon curd to creme fraiche meant that the mixture was a bit too tangy for me and also a bit too sweet. So I added more creme fraiche to tone it down. Next time I will tone it down even more.

The baskets do go soggy after a while so best eaten a max of a couple of hours after they've been made (as Swager says!).

I had some raspberries and melted chocolate left over, so served with the raspberries dipped in chocolate on the side.

Given that this takes no time at all and looks good, it deserves 5 stars!

Very simple and quick to make. Next time I will definitely use less lemon curd as they were quite tart!

I used this recipe last saturday when some friends came round for dinner. It looked impressive (although it had only taken me 5 - 10 mins to put them together) and was a tasty end to a meal.

Fantastic results from such a simple recipe. I used a 410g jar of Gales Lemon Curd and mixed it with about 350g of half fat creme fresh, I think it made about 8 baskets. Instead of melting the chocolate to drizzle over, I made it even simpler by crushing a cadbury's flake over top. Delicious. Will definately do again.

Very simple and easy to make. Baskets are tricky to find outside of the festive season. I don't like taste of creme fraiche too much on its own but mixed with lemon curd it's fab! Don't be tempted to put too much chocolate on top, it's impossible to eat after 1 hour in the fridge!

We were not keen on these, they are very simple to make. But we just thought they were too sweet. Maybe we got a measurement wrong somewhere, but was different to how we thought they would be.
