I am so busy with this that I don't have much time to cook and blog, so I am recycling this fantastic recipe that my kids made (they 'created' the dish a few years back!) for Sweet New Zealand, the monthly blogging event for Kiwi bloggers. Our August 2013 host is Marnelli from Sweets and Brains, click here to enter.
300 ml cream,
1 tsp caster sugar
2 (children's) handfuls of amaretti biscuits
+ 4 amaretti to decorate
70 g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
2 tbsp mixed citrus peels
Whip the cream with one teaspoon of caster sugar. Crush the amaretti into small crumbs. Grate the chocolate. Fold the crushed amaretti, grated chocolate and citrus peels with the cream. Divide between four glasses and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Top each dessert with an amaretto biscuit and serve.
Not bad, maybe a bit fattening for mum, and also I could have added some booze to mine...but it is interesting for me to see that even if my children were born in New Zealand they think Italian when they choose ingredients and mix things together.
