This is the recipe you need to make when you want something simple to make but drop dead gorgeous in yer mouth. It’s ridiculously simple to make but it tastes amazing. It’s based on St Delia’s Chocolate truffle torte.
For 10-12 portions you need
300g plain chocolate
150g milk chocolate
600ml double cream
75ml liquid glucose
100g amaretti biscuits, crushed
Begin by melting the chocolates and glucose together in a bain marie. Leave to cool for 5 mins.
Whip the cream to floppy, no more. If you go to soft peaks the torte will be too difficult to mix and loose the wonderfully soft texture you want.
Line a 23cm springform tin with baking paper and oil the base and sides. Sprinkle over the biscuit crumbs.
Once the cream is whipped, mix half of it into the chocolate, then mix in the rest of the cream. Mix thoroughly then scrape into the tin. Cover and chill for at least 2-3 hours. Best served with fresh fruit or lashings and lashings of single cream.
