CHOCOLATE HEART TORTE WITH RED BERRIES
Serves 8

Ingredients:
175g/6oz digestive biscuits
75g/3oz butter
2 (200g) bars plain chocolate, broken into
pieces
300ml/1/2 pt double cream
175g/6oz fresh red berries, halved
or quartered if large
Cocoa to dust

Method:

  1. Place the digestive biscuits in a food processor and whiz until fine crumbs. Place the butter into a medium heavy based saucepan and heat until melted and bubbling. Remove from the heat and add the biscuit crumbs and stir well. Place in the base of a 20cm loose based heart shaped tin and press down with the back of a spoon to level. Refrigerate until firm whilst making the topping.
  2. Place the chocolate and cream in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water and stir until the chocolate dissolves into the cream and the mixture becomes smooth.
  3. Pour over the biscuit base and refrigerate for 2 hours until firm.
  4. To remove from the tin, briefly dip the tin into some warm water and then place onto a board or plate. Arrange the red berries over the top and then lightly dust with a little cocoa.
  5. Serve cut into wedges and with cream if liked.
