Ingredients

  • 150 gram(s) Mini marshmallows
  • 50 gram(s) butter (soft)
  • 250 gram(s) dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids) chopped into small pieces
  • 60 ml boiling water (from recently boiled kettle)
  • 284 ml double cream
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract

Method

    1. Put the marshmallows, butter, chocolate and water in a heavy-based saucepan.
    2. Put the saucepan on the hob, over heat, though keep it fairly gentle, to melt the contents, stirring every now and again. Remove from the heat.
    3. Meanwhile, whip the cream with the vanilla extract until thick, and then fold into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth, cohesive mixture.
    4. Pour or scrape into 4 glasses or ramekins, about 175ml each in capacity, or 6 smaller (125ml) ones, and chill until you want to eat. The sooner the better!

Easy to make and tasty but makes loads! I would say this made 6-8 portions. I used two thirds dark chocolate and one third milk chocolate to make it a little lighter and served with amaretto whipped cream.
