Triple chocolate semifreddo



I have to confess that I really missed my kitchen when we were away from home nearly 2 months. So, once I back home I made pasta for our lunch and we told ourself that now we are home!!

Baking is the one I mostly missed, we got the invitation for dinner from my friends, Kate & Scott. I told myself it's the perfect time for making Triple chocolate semifreddo as we are kind of people who love eating chocolate!




I made this from Donna Hay cookbook, the one I felt in love at first sight when I saw from my friend, Pook (Dailydelicious) and she sent me some recipes from this book making me really happy. Thank you Pook.

We absolutely enjoyed the result. Just from the first bite....I felt like the touch of the angel's wings ^O^



250 g. dark chocolate, chopped
3 eggs
2 eggs yolks
110 g. caster sugar
430 ml. cream
100 g. chopped white chocolate (the recipe said 1/2 cup)
100 g. chopped milk chocolate (the recipe said 1/2 cup)

Place the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over the saucepan of simmerig water and stir until melted and smooth. Set aside.

Place the eggs, yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and whisk for 4-5 minutes or until the mixture is thick and pale.

Remove from the heat and beat with an electric mixer for 5-6 minutes or until cool.

Fold through the melted dark chocolate and set aside.

Place the cream in the bowl ad beat until soft peaks form.

Fold the egg and chocolate mixture and the white and milk chocolate through the cream.

Pour the mixture into a metal bowl or cake tin. ( I made 6 glasses an one small cake tin) cover and freeze for 4-6 hours or till firm.

Enjoy ^O^
