  • 450 g good-quality dark chocolate
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 T sugar
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 1 cup fresh mixed berries
  • 2 t chopped mint
  • 1 t smoked salt, for sprinkling

  • For the avocado pudding, blend:
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 t lemon juice
  • 3 Peppadews

Cooking Instructions

In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the chocolate and butter. In a separate saucepan, bring the sugar and cream to a boil, then add to the melted chocolate.

Transfer to a medium-sized roasting tray or rectangular plastic container and allow to set.

Mix the berries and chopped mint together and arrange on a platter.

Run a hot spoon along the length of the set chocolate to form a large curled “rose”. Arrange this on the platter.

Spoon the avocado pudding into a piping bag or nozzled plastic bottle and squeeze onto the serving plate.

Finish with a sprinkle of smoked salt and ground chilli.
