The second time I made these, I used orange curd instead of lemon. Equally brilliant result! Blueberries work well instead of raspberries and make a nice colour contrast.

Excellent and really easy. I used the Extra-Zesty Lemon Curd from Waitrose and I think an ordinary lemon curd would need be improved by adding the zest of fresh lemon. I used the quantities above and made eight full baskets. I didn't need 50g of chocolate - 25g would do and it's important to keep the little zig zags of chocolate quite fine and just for decoration as a sudden blob of chocolate doesn't taste right with the delicate lemony creamy taste. Will definitely be giving it to dinner guests from now on and the family loved it too.

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!

Very quick and easy to make, especially to prepare in advance. Insead of the brandy snap baskets, I crumbled chocloate muffins into little dessert dishes then put the raspberries and mixture on top...delicious and enjoyed by all!!!
