Of each of my three courses, the dessert was the most difficult to come up with. If I were to ask you to come up with a dessert recipe for Tabasco, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Personally, it was chocolate.
Brownies might have worked but they’re just not a dessert. I considered cheesecake but just wasn’t convinced, ditto melt in the middle puds. The eventual conclusion I arrived at was that I would just have to make a chocolate sauce. Because chilli + chocolate = goodness right?
You can replace pretty much all the ingredients (bar the chocolate sauce, duh) with something that suits your taste 100% BUT I really recommend not skimping on the quality of the ice cream, it’ll make a big difference.
100g dark chocolate
50ml whipping cream
1 tbsp Tabasco
2 tbsps caramel (Carnation will do)
handful honey-roasted nuts
4 scoops good quality vanilla ice cream
- To make the chocolate sauce, slowly melt the chocolate and cream in a pan then take off the heat and add the butter and Tabasco.
- Assemble all ingredients in a bowl (add extras if desired, I feel like this could have done with a cake-y element, brownies maybe..)
Have you ever tried hot sauce with a dessert? Tell me all about it in the comments!
