A devastating dessert from Lotte Duncan - layers of chocolate custard, rum-soaked crunchy almond biscuits and chocolate flake cream
Method1. Melt the plain and milk chocolate in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of boiling water.
2. Tip the custard into a mixing bowl. Stir in the melted chocolate, mixing well.
3. Place half the crushed biscuits in the bottom of a serving dish. Drizzle with rum to taste. Pour half the chocolate custard over the top. Add another layer of crushed biscuits (reserving a few as a topping), more rum and then the rest of the custard.
4. Whip the cream to the same consistency as the custard. Using a large metal spoon, gently fold the crushed flake bars into the cream. Spoon over the custard.
5. Sprinkle with the remaining crushed biscuits. Serve at once.
