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.

i made this for my HE coursework, it was easy and it tasted delicious. I added some lemon rind in as well to add more flavour

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.
