  • 500g mixed frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, redcurrants)

For the sauce

  • 142ml carton double cream
  • 140g white chocolate
    White chocolate squares, stacked

    White chocolate

    why-t chok-lit

    To purists, this is not chocolate because it is made only from the fat or butter of the cacao…

  • 1 tbsp white rum (optional)
    Dark rum cocktail with a lime slice



    Rum is a type of spirit based on sugar cane. First produced in the 1600s on slave plantations in…


  1. Make the sauce. Pour the cream into a small saucepan and break in the chocolate. Heat gently, stirring, until the chocolate melts into a smooth sauce. Take care not to overheat or the chocolate will seize into a hard lump. Remove from the heat and stir in the rum, if using.

  2. Scatter the frozen berries on 4 dessert plates or in shallow bowls. Pour the hot chocolate sauce over the fruits and serve immediately, as the fruits start to defrost.

Completely divine pudding! A puddle of hot creamy sauce topped with the cold and crunchy berries was really delicious. Everyone loved it!

The sauce being slightly yellow and translucent is normal, at least, that's how it comes at 'The Ivy'. To avoid over heating, combine the cream and chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Only use red currents, black currents, blackberries and raspberries. Strawberries are no good here, as they are larger and have no crevices to allow the sauce to soak in, they inevitably end up hard and unpleasant.

The sauce was lovely but make sure you take the berries (especially any large ones) out of the freezer a good hour before eating them - otherwise you'll break your teeth!

The sauce froze immediately as it touched the iced berries and the sauce did not look as good as in the photo. Would not serve this to guests! But I like the idea of the dish though.

This went down a treat at a recent long Sunday Lunch party! The girls all asked for seconds! It is so, so, easy to do, you cannot fail on this one other than not have enough for a second helping for all your guests! I recommend Green and Blacks white chocolate as it contains vanilla which adds to the flavour of the white hot chocolate sauce.

A great way to get the boyfriend to eat some fruit, and the sauce was quite tasty, but he thought it didn't look very attractive, kind of yellowish and see-through. Maybe I should have left it to cool a little first?
