A beautiful creamy peppermint custard base with a decadent Crio Bru chocolate ganache on top. Easy as a small dessert for a cast of thousands (which is precisely what I did) or in bigger tea cups for about 6-8 people. Cute for Valentine’s Day…you ready for that?? Came round awfully fast! Remember last year? (I barely do!)
I have just returned from another culinary trip to Bali and am full of Asian Inspiration…but for now, it is that chocolate time of the year. So get cracking, and get romantic…Asian can wait…for now!
