Here’s a fabulous feast that’s sure to put your other half in the mood for Valentine’s love
What you'll need
300g strawberries, plus 4 halved strawberries to decorate
50g icing sugar, plus 1 tsp
300ml double cream
6 tbsp Irish cream liqueur
For the topping
25g plain chocolate
1 tsp clear Irish honey
2 tbsp Irish cream liqueur
Put 200g of the strawberries into a food processor with 50g of the icing sugar and blitz into a coarse puree using the pulse button. Quarter the remaining strawberries and mix with the remaining icing sugar.
Whip the cream and Irish cream liqueur together in a large mixing bowl until it forms soft peaks. Gently fold in the strawberry puree. Layer the mixture in four stemmed dessert glasses with the quartered strawberries.
Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place over a pan of barely simmering water until melted. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the honey and Irish cream liqueur. Decorate the top of each fool with the halved strawberries and drizzle the chocolate sauce over the top.
