  • 160ml double cream
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 100g Dulce de Leche
  • Pinch of salt

  • Squirty cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dulce de Leche, gently melted
  • Shortbread stars
  • 100g caster sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar

  • 15g whole blanched almonds

Method

cook's notes

  • This recipe is easily multiplied, simply double up if serving four.
  • For a less rich option, swap the milk and cream for a milk alternative like coconut or oat milk.
