Love this recipe. In came about when I was trying to create something for a possible TV thing last year. Plan was a chocolate tart, burnt blood oranges, pistachio praline, cardamon syrup and a orange liqueur gel… so I tried loads of tart fillings. Baked and non baked. Lovely Si Toft, Owner/Chef Patron of The Dining Room in Abersoch came to my frustrated rescue.I will never use another recipe again. Super creamy, rich and silky. More importantly its very easy and non bake!


500 ml double cream

275 g dark chocolate
