Black Forest Eton Mess

May 28, 2019Sew White

What a great and delicious dessert to share around the dinner table. My Black Forest Truffle Eton Mess mixes the great black forest flavours in a new way.

This happens to my favourite dinner party dessert as it can be made very elegantly presented in one glass per person. Or popped into a large dish and your guests can help themselves. I love it’s flexibility as well as it’s taste.

How to make the Black Forest Eton Mess

Meringue, chocolate brownies and truffles ready to be made. The frozen fruit mixed with the brandy on a low heat to make the coulis for the Black Forest Truffle Eton Mess.

It’s super simple to make and most of it is just mixed together. It can mostly be made before hand which is always a bonus. You can make the brownies or buy them also making the dish quicker to make.

I use frozen fruit to make the coulis and cook it down with brandy to make it a thick and juicy mess. If you want it non alcoholic you don’t need to add the brandy. Allow it to cool before you use it.

To make the cream layer it’s double cream, icing sugar and brandy whisked together until thick.

Using Charbonnel et Walker Kir Royale truffles for the Black Forest Truffle Eton Mess adds an extra flavour to the finished dessert.

In a large dish spoon spoonfuls of the cream mix and stud with chopped up brownies, meringues, Kir Royale Truffles (or plain) and spoonfuls of the berries.

The addition of the mini meringues looks so cute. I also added a little edible shimmer I bought from lakeland. It made the dessert look even more special.

The mix of the smooth cream, crunchy meringue, rich chocolate truffles, soft brownies and fruity compote work so well together. I can’t wait to try this again for dinner parties.
