Looks like Poo?

Do you ever get really excited to try a recipe out?

One you have been looking forward to for months, and you finally get all the ingredients together and 

then your children say,' Blurgh, looks like Poo!'

'Ginormous dinosaur poo! Hatchling no4 chimes in.

Talk about a mood killer, eh!

It isn't that bad... is it?

Maybe a little...

Anyways, should you be interested in attempting to make this look a lot better than I did, I can testify it was delicious...

Chocolate amaretti pud

200g amaretti biscuits

250g dark chocolate

400ml double cream

75ml brandy 
(I made two, the second I used caramel hot chocolate for hatchings - that was yummy too)

Cocoa to dust

1. Melt chocolate in a bowl and whisk in cream.

2. Pour a little chocolate mix into the bottom of a pudding basin.

3. Dip amaretti biscuits in brandy, and arrange them in a layer.

4. Cover biscuits with chocolate.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until done.
