Raspberry Ripple

04th Feb 2014

Raspberry Ripple White Chocolate Slab


120g fresh raspberries

2 tbsp golden caster sugar

dash of lemon juice

900g white chocolate, chopped, or callets

1 x shallow baking tin measuring 32x22cm

Makes 1 large slab

Line the base and sides of the baking tin with cling film. Press raspberries through a mesh strainer set over a bowl to remove seeds. Stir in sugar and add a dash of lemon juice to taste.

Melt and temper the chocolate. Pour the tempered chocolate into the tin, spreading it evenly.

Use a spoon to drizzle the raspberry juice over the surface of the chocolate and then, using a knife or skewer, swirl the raspberry juice through the chocolate to create a rippled effect.

Leave to set, then remove from the tin.
