Break the chocolate into smaller pieces and place in a glass bowl over boiling water and allow to melt.

In the meantime, beat the cream until it forms soft peaks. Once the chocolate has melted, fold it into the cream with a spatula.

Get your 6 glasses or small bowls ready and place two boudoir biscuits in each.
Drizzle some sherry over the biscuits.

Pour some custard in each glass followed by some fresh berries.

Spoon some of the cream white chocolate mixture on top of the berries and repeat the layers ending with some white chocolate.

Scatter a few berries on the top and finish off with a sprig of mint and some chocolate shavings. Keep refrigerated for at least 1 hour.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
