Scandinavian Iced Berries with Hot White Chocolate Sauce
Made at All Restaurants | Serves 6
650g frozen berries
600g white chocolate buttons
600ml double cream
This was invented on the recommendation of a customer who had eaten something similar in Sweden. The kitchen experimented for ages with the sauce until they came up with the melted white chocolate buttons. This is the simplest and most moreish pudding you will ever make and is destined to become a dinner-party classic.
For this recipe you can buy either mixed frozen berries, or raspberries. Alternatively, freeze your own selection of berries on a flat tray then put them into a bag in the freezer until ready to use. Larger berries, such as strawberries and large blackberries, are not recommended for this recipe as they do not defrost quickly enough.
Place the chocolate buttons and the cream in a bowl over a pan of simmering water for 20–30 minutes, stirring every so often until the sauce is hot. Five minutes before serving, put the berries onto dessert plates and leave at room temperature to lose a little of their chill. Transfer the chocolate sauce into a serving jug. Place the berries in front of your guests and pour the hot chocolate sauce at the table. Insist that you cover the berries generously for the best result!
