Coppa Amaretto

My children made this dessert, a little improvised but so easy, and no cooking required.

They used:
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

Serves 4

Whip the cream with one teaspoon of caster sugar. The girl did that. Crush the amaretti into small crumbs. The boy did that. Grate the chocolate (hard work, they took turns, started with 100 g but I think that in the end only about 70 g went into the dessert). 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.
