I recently came across this recipe from Jamie Oliver for a vegan chocolate, cherry, and honeycomb parfait and thought it sounded amazing; so I decided to make it and just change a couple of things about it! Hope you enjoy this 🙂
You will need;
For the Honeycomb;
- 4 tablespoons of golden syrup
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
For the Parfait;
- 200grams of dairy free chocolate of your choice
- 1/2 cup of dried/fresh cranberries
- 1/2 cup of berry’s of your choice (fresh or frozen)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean
- 1/2 cup of mixed crushed nuts (I used almonds and pistachios)
- 1/4 cup of glace cherries (or fresh)
- 150grams of dairy free butter
- Line a loaf tin with clingfilm (with at least 4 inches extra hanging over the side), and set aside.
- Line and butter a high sided baking tray, and set aside.
- Break up your 200grams of chocolate and place into a heatproof bowl; set aside.
- Measure out your 150grams of DF butter, and add to your broken up chocolate; cover, and set aside.
- Measure your golden syrup and sugar into a large sided saucepan, and place over a low heat.
- Once this turns into a caramel colour, add in your baking soda and mix quickly. Once mixed, transfer to your prepared baking tray quickly and set aside until cooled (at least 30minutes).
- Take your heatproof bowl with your chocolate and DF butter, add in your vanilla, and place over a pan of simmering water; start to melt on a low heat stirring occasionally.
- While your chocolate is melting, measure out your mixed nuts and start to crush them using a rolling pin.
- Measure out your cranberries, cherry’s and mixed berry’s, and add to your mixed nuts.
- Once your honeycomb has set, cut into chunks (any size you would like), and add to your nut/berry mixture.
- Once your chocolate has melted, take of the heat, and immediately mix in your nut mixture, with the honeycomb, until all is combined.
- Transfer to your prepared loaf tin, and gently fold the clingfilm over the top of the chlorate mixture to keep the air out.
- Place in your freezer for 1 hour, and then transfer to your fridge until fully set.
- Remove your parfait from your fridge, and cut into slices.
Hope you liked this!
Have you ever made parfait before?
