There are a few key words that sum up this dessert and all at once you will realise why it is amazing!
- Ridiculously indulgent… kills the cravings!
- Sugar Free
- Gluten and grain free (no flours)
- Takes just 2 minutes
- Endless flavour variations and mix-ins if desired
- It uses chocolate, I don’t think we need to say much more!
This version of the recipe is a chocolate cherry version, but you could use any berries, chocolate orange, choco-banana…or just plain and simple plain chocolate.
Recipe: Hot chocolate cherry pots
Serves 2 (or 1 if you’re feeling hungry) multiply recipe to fill more ramekins!
1/4 cup blanched almond paste
2 tbs cocoa powder (good quality)
1 tbs sugar-free berry jam and a few drops of stevia (to taste)
1/4 heaped tsp baking powder
tiny pinch salt
up to 1/4 cup non-dairly milk or juice of choice ( I used soy milk)
small handful of pitted cherries (or other fruit)
Mix everything (except the fruit) together until smooth adding the liquid last until the mixture is thick but easily spoonable.
You can mix a little fruit through the batter if desired otherwise spoon into a ramekin no higher than 2/3 of the way up and top with the fruit.
Microwave for 60 seconds on high, or you could bake in the oven.
Note: We have not tried the oven version yet (due to impatience!) but I can see no reason as to why it would not work- just keep an eye on it and be careful not to let it dry out as you still want a gooey centre.
