Chloe Likes To Eat

A little mid-weektreat as my dad’s parents were staying with us for a couple of days. Dessert… during the week… this is quite novel as my parents are having a bit of a health kick and we’re not really a dessert kind of a family either…

 Amaretti Biscuits
Vanilla Ice Cream
Pocket Coffee
Maraschino Cherries (soaked in Kirsch... naturally)
Chocolate Sauce




All made by dad, except the Pocket Coffee. For those unfamiliar, Pocket Coffee are Italian liqueur chocolates. A dark chocolate exterior, a fine wafer base and filled with very potent coffee liqueur. These are loved by pretty much everyone in my family because my aunt who lives in Sicily brings them over when she visits, but you can actually buy them here from Amazon.

Spoiled... me.. much?

Wow! I'm so impressed by your dad's cooking skills! I when I started reading this I was wondering what posh hotel/restaurant you'd had your meal in!

It is indeed, made by my Dad's fair hand!

Chloe said...

Thanks. It was definitely tasty.

Chloe said...

Aaah, thanks. He worked as a chef right up until him and my mum started their business, and he's a Master chef of Great Britain so it should be good...

That is a rather impressive dessert I must say! Pocket Coffees look amazing, I wish I had spied some when I was in Italy.

Chloe said...

Me too actually, wish there were still some left!

Chloe said...

They are seriously good, but quite potent!

Whilst it looks great, it's actually pretty simple to make, but seriously tasty! The Pocket Coffees are brilliant, well worth a purchase from Amazon, they make great gifts too.
