  • 1 cup (250ml) prepared DAVIDOFF Crema Intense Instant coffee 
  • 500g dark chocolate (70% or higher), roughly chopped 
  • Berries, such as raspberries, strawberries or blueberries (optional) 



  1. Prepare coffee – we used 2 Tbsp (30ml) DAVIDOFF Crema intense instant coffee with 1 cup boiling water.  
  2. Bring a small pot of water to the boil.  
  3. Place a glass or metal bowl bigger than the pot on top to create a double-boiler. (Check that bowl isn’t touching the water.)  
  4. Place chocolate and hot water in the bowl and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth.  
  5. Place bowl in an ice bath and whisk with an electric beater on medium speed until mixture starts to thicken.  
  6. Remove bowl from ice bath when the chocolate on the sides becomes set. 
  7. Whisk only until aerated and a soft mousse texture has formed. (Over-whipping will cause more of a chocolate spread texture. If this happens, melt chocolate again and repeat process.)  
  8. Serve immediately topped with coffee chocolate bark (see below) and berries. 

To make a chocolate bark topping, spread 1 slab (100g) melted milk chocolate and 1 slab (100g) melted dark chocolate on a lined baking tray, swirling to create a marbled effect if you like. Sprinkle with 2-3 Tbsp  roughly coffee beans and ½ packet (50g) toasted hazelnuts. Set in the fridge until firm, about 15 minutes. Snap into shards and serve.

White chocolate bakewell tart

It’s traditionally made with a jam layer on the base, but we’ve upped the yum factor with a layer of white chocolate ganache instead. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if you like.
