A summer dinner party was on the cards, and I wanted to make a simple dessert using the amazing fresh berries I had found at Woolworths. I had planned on buying little casings for them, but could not find any. And so, I went home and used my silicone cup cake holders to make a chocolate casing. As you can tell from the pictures, it was not too bad an effort. And they were simple to do. I just melted some sugar free chocolate in a bowl over some simmering water and then poured the chocolate into the mould. I twirled the chocolate all around and poured out the excess and then put the moulds into the freezer to set. We carefully removed the silicone from the chocolate casings (well, as carefully as one can after a few glasses of wine) and placed some berries that I had mixed with some cream into each casing. Taylor started singing ♪♪♪ I got the berries, ♪♪♪ I got the berries ♪♪♪ and so the name was decided upon. This is a winner as the casings can be done days ahead of your party!
