unbelievably delicious!

It’s the time of the annual family Christmas party; it was started by my aunty, but now my cousins carry on the tradition.  I’m sharing a recipe which has became a regular feature on the party table. My aunty used to go to cookery evening classes and then make some delicious desserts for us – she was never as keen on savoury dishes!

Aunty Audrey’s chocolate Turinois

  • 8 oz butter
  • 4 oz sifted icing sugar
  • 8 oz plain chocolate, melted over hot water
  • 2 tbsp Camp Coffee – I used good instant coffee diluted with a little hot water, about 3 tablespoons of coffee
  • 2+ tbsp brandy or rum
  • 1 can chestnut purée
  1. cream butter and icing sugar until pale and fluffy
  2. stir in the purée, mixing well and add the brandy or rum and coffee
  3. mix in the melted chocolate
  4. pour into a 1 lb loaf tin lined with cling film and put in the fridge to set
  5. decorate as you wish!

It is unbelievably delicious but unfortuantely I don’t have a photo of it – so my featured image is of another party cake!
