250ml of Water
100 ml of Whipping Cream
1 tbsp. of Sugar
2 tbsp. of (organic) Cocoa Powder, sifted
100g of (organic) Dark Chocolate 60% – 70%
Fresh Red Fruit such as Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries.
Roasted Flaked Almonds
1 tsp. of Crème de Cassis
This soup will be ready to serve within 10 minutes and has to be served immediately. Therefore please start with roasting the flaked almonds and preparing the fruit for the garnish.
To make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn, I make this soup bain marie. Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. The base of the bowl should sit above the water without touching it.
Add the water, whipping cream, sugar and cocoa powder to the heatproof bowl. Whisk it together for 3 to 5 minutes.
Break the chocolate in pieces and add to the mixture. Keep stirring and allow the chocolate to melt so that it is smooth and shiny. Once dissolved stir in the teaspoon of Crème de Cassis and pour into a small coffee cup/espresso cup.
Garnish with fresh red fruit of your choice and roasted flaked almonds. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and serve immediately.
Bon Appetite 😉
