Hi everyone, sorry I have not been well hence have not been cooking and developing recipes. I am bit better now, and to thank the boyfriend for nursing me back to life, I have decided to make him a little sweet treat. Inspired by Dessert Story secret garden range where desserts are created to look like edible pot plants, this recipe is very quick and easy to make I promise and wait till you see the surprised look on your loved ones face when you serve it up to them.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Chilled time: 30 minutes
100 grams of Toblerone blocks
1 can of whipped cream
fresh herbs or flower of your choice
You can make or own whipped cream from scratch if you like. But to avoid having to wash up additional dishes and my arms from falling off from whisking I have found a quick simple solution for $3.50 at Coles. Grab yourself one of these:
Melt chocolate in a plastic bowl for 90 secs on high in the microwave. Allow cool for 1 minute. Squeeze half the can of whipped cream into bowl of chocolate. Whisk rapidly until evenly blended. Place element into transparent glass and chill in fridge for 30 minutes.
Crush Oreo and Caramel nougats together (this gives it the dirt/ crushed rocks look)
Remove glass from fridge. Place crushed cookies on top of the chocolate mouse. cut out a stem of flower of your choice or mint plant or herbs and plant it onto the sweet pot. Place it onto the table as a center piece without the partner/friend’s knowledge then give them a spoon and tell them to eat it, enjoy watching their reaction =)
