A Chocolate Lovers Dream

St. Valentine‘s Day is less than a week away and so far I’ve only given you a main course, but don’t worry, the dessert recipe is coming up shortly.

This is another one from my early days of cooking and experimenting, the original recipe made for an incredibly “heavy” dessert and as a result I hadn’t made this for quite a while, however I have reworked it & tested it with quite a few friends recently and they all gave it a thumbs up including our Guest Photographer for this post and the recipe. Thanks for the amazing photos and the fantastic dinner Redmum :)

The recipe makes enough to serve 6-8 people, however for the Valentines meal you could make it up as individual portions in ramekins and freeze the extra crumble, to use another time.

After some thought and experimentation, I settled on a berry ice-cream as the best to serve this with. The tart of the berries balances the sweetness of the chocolate perfectly. I’ve included the details for making the ice-cream on the recipe, but you could of course serve this with any ice-cream.

This tastes out of this world especially if you are a chocolate lover and is an ideal way to top off a Valentines dinner. I can’t wait to hear what you all think of this recipe.
