Ingredients

Base

100g caster sugar

300ml Anchor Cream

60ml boiling water

3 tsp gelatine powder

1 cup Fruit Yoghurt 

70g pink marshmallows, halved

100g 70% dark chocolate, chopped

Instructions

  1. Grease a 20-23cm spring-form cake tin and line the base with baking paper.

  3. Place the cream cheese and sugar in a medium bowl and beat until smooth. 
  4. Beat the cream until thick peaks form. 
  5. In a small bowl or ramekin, pour in the boiling water and sprinkle the gelatine over top. Mix to dissolve using a fork and leave to cool slightly.
  6. Beat the gelatin into cream cheese mix until well combined. Add the yoghurt and beat again. 
  7. Gently fold in the whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate. 
  8. Pour over the base and refrigerate for at least 5 hours, preferably overnight. 
  9. Serve with your choice of fresh berries and grated dark chocolate.
