There is something about chocolate that I find almost irresistible. I don’t know if the sweetness or the slightly bitter taste but it really hits all the right buttons for me. Dark chocolate is also high in antioxidants which means it’s super healthy too! Just make sure you choose 70% plus cocoa solids and not a big bar of sugar-packed Hershey’s. I’ve found this recipe at the amazing BBC Food Blog and you can find it here. This dessert also contains raspberries – another nutritional powerhouse. Taking less than 25 minutes to make, this dessert is an ideal spur-of-the moment treat. If you are serving this to children, make sure you leave out the alcohol.
- 9 ounces fresh raspberries
- 2 tablespoons Cointreau (or Grand Marnier)
- The zest and juice from one small orange
- 3 ounces dark chocolate, 70%+ cocoa solids
- 3 tablespoons soya milk
- 2 ounces caster sugar – use stevia powder is preferred
- 6 tablespoons of your favourite gluten-free breakfast muesli or just use some chipped roasted nuts and dried fruit
Divide the raspberries equally and put into four small serving bowls. Sprinkle with half a tablespoon of Cointreau plus a little orange zest and juice, and then set aside.
Melt the chocolate and add the soya milk. Once combine, set aside to cool. Put the sugar into a pan with three tablespoons of water. Heat gently but without stirring for about seven minutes or until the sugar melts and starts to turn golden caramel brown. Add in the muesli and stir. Next, pour onto a lined and greased tray. Leave to cool and, once set, shatter into thin pieces.
Pour the chocolate mixture equally into the serving bowls and then allow to cool, but do not refrigerate. Scatter with the caramel crunch to serve.
