Frozen berries with hot white-chocolate sauce recipe
The idea for this came from a customer of mine just back from a skiing trip. It’s one of those perfect marriages of ingredients, and one of the easiest desserts to prepare and serve. What could be simpler: berries biding their time in the freezer and white-chocolate sauce gently heating over a pan of simmering water until you’re ready for it. Buy either mixed frozen berries, or just raspberries. Alternatively, freeze your own on a flat tray then transfer them to a bag in the freezer to store for a rainy day. Don’t use larger berries; strawberries and bigger blackberries struggle to defrost however hot the sauce is.
400g best-quality white-chocolate buttons or bars, chopped into pieces
400g double cream
500g frozen berries
Put the chocolate and cream into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water for about 20-30 minutes, stirring every so often. This can be done while you are eating your starters or mains. When the sauce is hot, just cover it with cling film and turn off the heat.
Five minutes before serving, put the berries on to dessert plates and leave at room temperature to lose a little of their chill. Transfer the chocolate sauce to a serving jug.
Place the berries in front of your guests to pour the hot chocolate sauce generously over them at the table.
