You heard right, today we have some amazing alcoholic dessert ideas for you.

Warm Brandy Custard with Crispy Chocolate Cookies and Ginger Meringue
Believe us, this dessert will bring you Christmas feelings on a sultry monsoon afternoon.

Ingredients:

  • 100g brown sugar
  • 3 cups (360g) pure icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 cup (100g) good quality cocoa
  • 30g dark chocolate (70%) chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons of mixed spices
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 600 ml of pure cream (thin)
  • A cinnamon feather
  • 100ml cognac

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C.

  • Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.

  • Place brown sugar, icing sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, chocolate and spices in a large bowl and stir to combine well.

  • Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the beaten egg whites and whole egg mixture, then mix until well blended.

  • Working with 1/4 cup of mixture at a time, form rounds on baking sheets, leaving 6 cm between each cookie.
  • Then place the trays in the oven and bake, switching trays halfway through, for 20 minutes or until set.
  • Remove from oven and slide parchment paper with cookies onto wire racks to cool to room temperature.
  • For your brandy custard, whisk the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until fluffy.

  • Place the cream and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to just below boiling point.

  • Gradually begin pouring the cream mixture over the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly, until well blended. Return to saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, for 6 minutes or until custard is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

  • Stir in brandy.

  • Dip the biscuits in the hot custard and voila, you can serve it.

liqueur chocolates
Can we say this is such a cute idea to gift your loved ones? While alcohol chocolates were very high end back then, now you can make them at home. It’s a pretty easy recipe if you ask us.

Ingredients:

  • 500 grams finely chopped dark chocolate
  • 3-4 tablespoons of rum
  • 50 grams of raisins
  • 250 grams of cream

Method:

  • Soak the raisins in the rum for about an hour or two.
  • Then take the cream and heat it over low heat (avoid boiling it).
  • Pour the cream over the chopped chocolate and stir until the cream and chocolate combine well and form a creamy texture.
  • The proportion of cream and chocolate should always be 1:2, this is done so that balls can be easily formed from the mixture.
  • Add the rum and raisins soaked in the cream and chocolate mixture, mix well and chill the final mixture in the refrigerator for about half one o’clock.
  • Once the mixture is set enough to roll into balls, take it out of the fridge.
  • Roll small balls with your hands.
  • You have finished!
