I used semi-sweet chocolate in this recipe, but it is even better using 70% cacao chocolate – as long as everyone you are serving loves dark chocolate. You could even swap in milk chocolate if you want more sweetness and dislike the slightly bitter taste of dark chocolate.

    I love my chocolate and this dessert does look delicious, I’m one of those who doesn’t like dark chocolate so it’s milk or white for me. With white chocolate perhaps I could colour the cream red, that would be perfect for Canada Day.
