Lindt DESSERT Premium Dark

Easy

Ingredients

  • 60g Caster sugar
  • 20g Honey 
  • 25ml Cream, 35% fat 
  • 30g Butter 
  • Pinch Fleur de sel or sea salt
  • 40g Orange peel, fresh skin diced and blanched*
  • Optional ½ tsp ground cumin 
  • 30g Almond slivers
  • 30g Almond flaked
  • 180g Lindt DESSERT Premium Dark 

*You can also use store bought peel but using fresh provides a lovely clean flavour

A mixture of almond flakes and slivers provides a lovely texture contrast. The addition of a touch of cumin is optional but it is a stunning combination that elevates this classic to a new level. Cinnamon, even Rosemary work really well also.
