I have a total sweet spot for caramel and with Christmas round the corner there is no exception - I love the stuff and what better way to serve it than with chocolate and raspberries on top?
Serves 8, cooking time 30 minutes (but needs a few hours to cool).
For the caramel:
150g light brown sugar
150ml double cream
For the chocolate:
200g dark chocolate - cut into small pieces
690ml whole milk
3tbsp corn flour
1/4 tsp salt
1tsp vanilla extract
2tsp coco powder
4 egg yolks
Put the butter and sugar into a saucepan and heat on a low to medium heat for 10-15 minutes stirring until the sugar has devolved (don't worry if the sugar goes a little granulated again). Add the cream and stir continuously for about 5 minutes until the mixture is very smooth. Pour the caramel into glass ramekins. Chill for 30 minutes then add the raspberries- i like to cut them in half a place them round the edge of the glass, then full the middle with them.
Put corn flour and salt in a pan with a splash of the milk and mix to a paste. Add the rest of the milk and egg yolks and stir continuously on low heat until thickened (10-12 mins). Add chocolate, cocoa and vanilla to the thickened mixture and heat until the chocolate has melted (don’t let it boil).
Pour over raspberries in ramekins and chill for 2 hrs.
Serve with raspberries on top and grate a little chocolate. I added a little edible glitter if your feeling very festive ;)
Hope you enjoy and Merry Christmas!
