Homemade Desserts

You can add as many ingredients to your own chocolate desserts as you want.

It is so much fun to put together and every time I make it I use different ingredients.

Chocolate and cream is always a delicious explosion of flavour.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tub Cream
  • 1 Packet Chocolate Sponge
  • 2 Tubs Aero Chocolate Mix
  • 1 Bar Milk Chocolate
  • 1 packet Marshmallows

Step One: Preparing the Cream

  1. Pour the cream into a bowl and whip with either a handheld whisk or an electric whisk. I prefer to use the handheld one because it does not take long and is less messy when cleaning up.
  2. Whip the cream until it can stand up in a peak when lightly folded.
  3. Set the whipped cream aside.

Step Two: Preparing the Chocolate Sauce and Sprinkles

  1. Break up half the milk chocolate bar into pieces, and put into a small glass.
  2. Fill a saucepan with enough water to come up to three quarters the way of the glass.
  3. Boil the water and add the glass.
  4. Stir the chocolate squares until they have melted.
  5. Add some cream to the melted chocolate very slowly and stir in.
  6. This will make it taste much better but will also stop the chocolate from hardening while you prepare the rest of this desert.
  7. Put the remainder of the chocolate on a chopping board or plate and slice up into small chunky pieces.

Step Three: Preparing the Sponge

  1. Heat up the sponge in the microwave as per the instructions on the container.
  2. Take out and put in a half portion to each glass.
  3. You can use any chocolate sponge you like but when I am making this dessert I like to treat myself to a Belgium chocolate brownie pudding.
  4. This has extra flavour and richness with a delicious dark and milk chocolate sauce.

Step Four: Prepare the Marshmallows

  • Cut the marshmallows in half either with your kitchen scissors or a sharp knife.

Step Five: Layer It Up and Top It Off

Add each ingredient to the glasses as you choose. Here is what I do:

  1. Add in half the sponge to the bottom of the glasses.
  2. About a third of the whipped cream.
  3. Then half the Aero chocolate and half the marshmallows.
  4. Add the remainder of the sponge, Aero, and marshmallows in that order.
  5. The topping is now the remainder of the cream.
  6. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings on top of the cream.
  7. Then pour over the heated chocolate sauce.

Chocolate Desert Surprise

If you decide to make this original recipe you will be delighted with the mixture of chocolate and cream flavour.

I admit the dessert is rather unhealthy but we all deserve a treat now and again!

I make it when I have a special occasion as it is the perfect chocolate dessert for a dinner party.

Fresh Whipped Cream

In Ireland we call this cream Double Cream. In the UK it is called Whipping Cream.

I do not know what it is called in the US or other countries. But please do not use that imitation cream from a can. It tastes absolutely horrible.

Once you have used the proper cream you will never have that canned stuff in the kitchen again.

Sponge

You can use any sponge you like. But when I am making this recipe I like to treat myself to a nice Belgium Chocolate Brownie Pudding.

It has extra flavour and richness and also a delicious dark chocolate sauce.

Aero

You can use any one you like but the bubbly texture of the aero does make a nice difference to the overall taste of this desert.

      Yes a chocolate dessert is really a nice treat after a good dinner. And what could be better than making it yourself.

      Susana this is the perfect recipe for a chocolate lover. Thanks for the vote of 5 stars

      Mei I would normally use dark chocolate in my dessert recipes but with this one there is plenty of dark chocolate on the sponge. So it would be too much of an overload here.

      Moonlake Yes it really does taste good. Marshmallows cream and chocolate combined together is a wonderful combination. Thanks for the vote

      In the U.S., viking, it is called whipped cream. And I can put on weight just looking at those luscious photos. Chocolate and whipped cream and marshmallows? Food for the gods. And goddesses.

      Yes this chocolate dessert is very indulgent and not a recipe to be made often! But it is so nice that it is perfect for that special occasion. Chocolate, marshmallows and cream are a combination that just have to be exploited for our taste buds.
