This is the first in our The Creamery & Saszali Creative Colab, bringing you a series of inspiring and easy desserts. The holiday season is almost upon us: the evenings are warmer, the days longer and we’re all dreaming up delicious seasonal entertaining ideas. The lovely Sarah & Jane of Saszali and our Katy Rose of The Creamery set up a workshop, bringing together creative energy, delicious flavours and tempting visuals.
This week we’re featuring a Saszali Chocolate Torte, The Creamery Strawberry Ice Cream and homemade chocolate sauce. The Chocolate Torte is a gluten free dessert, with a rich brownie-type texture. For The Creamery Fans, they are very similar to our Hot Chocolate Puddings. Topped with a scoop of Creamery Strawberry Ice Cream, one of our most popular summer seasonal flavours. The dense richness of the torte pairs beautifully with the fresh, bright strawberry ice creams -and we topped off our dessert with a little extra luxury: a homemade hot chocolate sauce.
You can buy our chocolate tortes from Rosetta Roastery or Twigs with Beans (or
order a batch from us directly) and then grab a tub of Creamery Ice Cream from either of their stores (Newlands & Salt River ) and then use the simple chocolate sauce recipe below to create this decadent dessert.
Serves : Sauce for +/- 6 tortes
80g good quality dark chocolate (we recommend 56% dark chocolate)
100ml fresh pouring cream
Cut or grate your chocolate. Place it in a medium sized bowl.
Heat your cream to 80° C. (just before it starts bubbling)
Pour it over the chocolate. Leave it to sit for 1 minute. Then mix slowly, the chocolate will melt and a creamy consistency will prevail. Pour over your ice cream or dessert.
If you are making it ahead of time then place a piece of clingfilm over the sauce and leave out at room temperature. Should the mixture firm up then place in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds at a time to melt it down.
