  • 142ml carton double cream
  • 140g white chocolate
  • 1 tbsp white rum (optional)


Freezing your own berries
Freeze berries individually if you want to take out a handful at a time. Spread them on trays lined with non-stick baking parchment. Open freeze until solid, then scoop into plastic bags, seal and label. Soft fruits will keep frozen for up to a year. To defrost, transfer to the fridge so they slowly thaw.


  1. Make the sauce. Pour the cream into a small saucepan and break in the chocolate. Heat gently, stirring, until the chocolate melts into a smooth sauce. Take care not to overheat or the chocolate will seize into a hard lump. Remove from the heat and stir in the rum, if using.

  2. Scatter the frozen berries on 4 dessert plates or in shallow bowls. Pour the hot chocolate sauce over the fruits and serve immediately, as the fruits start to defrost.
