Relaxing This Weekend..With Our Delicious Sweet Treats
How to relax this weekend? We agree. Keep it simple. Read the papers, potter in the garden, enjoy the smell of freshly cut grass and spend time with family and friends. And food? Well isn’t quick and delicious always the way and this weekend why not spoil yourself with a simple throw-together sweet treat, straight from our favourite Northumbrian cook Jane Lovett. Jane’s Creamy White Chocolate Pots can be created in seconds and they’re pictured here in our gorgeous ibbi hand painted ramekins. Read on and enjoy..
Creamy White Chocolate Pots (Serves 6)
7 oz best quality white chocolate
7 oz creme fraîche
7 oz Greek yoghurt
blueberries, redcurrants, raspberries or strawberries
icing sugar to decorate
Break the chocolate in to a mixing bowl. Suspend it over a saucepan of hot water until melted. Don’t let the bottom of the bowl come in to contact with the water.
Stir the creme fraîche in to the chocolate, followed by the yoghurt and mix together until smooth.
Spoon in to ramekins, cover and leave to set in the fridge for 4 hours (or overnight).
Just before serving, top with fruit and dust with icing sugar. Drizzled honey is scrummy too.
