Ingredients

  • 1 packet pre rolled shortcrust pastry (approximately 350g)
  • a little plain flour for dusting
  • 100 grams plain chocolate
  • 50 grams milk chocolate
  • 125 ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 300 grams Strawberries
  • 3 passionfruits (optional)

Instructions

  • Remove the shortcrust pastry out of the fridge and leave to warm up to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan.
  • On a lightly floured surface lay out the pastry and roll to make it a little thinner.
  • Cut the pastry into squares. Approximately 4 squares by 3 squares. Approximately 6cm square. It doesn't need to be perfect at all.
  • Lightly dust cupcake tins with flour and place the squares in side to make a case.
  • Pop them in the oven for 5-10 mins until golden brown.
  • When they're cooked remove from the cupcake tin and leave to cool on a cooling rack. Leave the cupcake tins aside for later.
  • Break up the chocolate and add it to a mixing bowl along with the tablespoon of butter.
  • In a pan heat the cream on a low/medium heat until it starts to lightly bubble.
  • Pour over the chocolate and leave to melt for a few minutes and then stir together.
  • Pop the cases back in the cold tins (it makes it easier to transport) and spoon the chocolate mix into the pastry cases.
  • Pop back in the fridge to harden.
  • When you're ready to serve them top them with a strawberry and serve.
  • (optional) Add a little passion fruit to the chocolate before the strawberry to add a tart flavour to compliment the fresh and sweet flavour of the strawberry.
