How many people does it serve?

This should be an easy question to answer, but in South Africa, it’s complicated, due to our colourful multi-cultural rainbow nation.

  1. In an Anglo Saxon household, each pizza/meal should feed between 4 to 6 guests.
  2. In a Mediterranean, Ethnic or African home it could feed as little as 1 to 3 people for a single meal as food needs to be experienced in large quantities.
  3. If you’re of Scandinavian extraction, each meal could last you a month!

Then we need to look at your emotional state, as that is a determining factor when dealing with quantities.

  1. Have you had a terrible day with your boss?
  2. Did you fight with your spouse?
  3. Are your kids driving you insane?
  4. Is your wi-fi slower than the Groot Trek?
  5. Is the lockdown getting to you?
  6. Did that hot guy from the gym eventually whatsapp you?
  7. How are you doing with those skinny jeans?
  8. Is your mother-in law doing what mother-in laws do?
  9. What season of Game of Thrones are you watching?

All these contributing factors could influence the amount you will choose to eat; Ranging from “just a slice/bite” to “call in the kitchen Calvary we’re going down babies”!

METHOD

  1. Break your chocolate slab into rough squares and place in a bowl. Microwave for 40 seconds or until the chocolate has melted. Once melted, give it a nice stir to melt the last pieces that might not have melted.
  2. Take a tray and cover it with wax or baking paper.

Now, let’s make the shards.

You do not want the chocolate spread too thinly or it’ll break.

  1. Give your melted chocolate one last stir and pour it directly onto the tray. Don’t waste any chocolate – scoop it all out! To spread it evenly pick the tray up and tap it on the table a few times. 

Now that the chocolate has reached the desired thickness let’s add the toppings.

  1. Add the glacé cherries which you can keep whole or cut in half.
  2. Next, add the pistachios. We separated them into a whole, halved and crushed for visual variation. Add to the chocolate.
  3. Now you can place this in the freezer for 25mins or until you need them.

Yes! It’s that easy.

  1. Once your choc chip cherry dome has thawed, place it on a cake stand and let’s bring out our chocolate. Carefully unstick the chocolate from the baking paper and then lift and drop. Break it into as many shards as you want. Have fun!
  2. If OTT is your thing, an optional extra is to purchase some gold dust, which you can now easily buy from a supermarket, and using a brush sprinkle on your shards.

Now we are ready to dress the choc chip cherry dome.

  1. You can place the shards anywhere you like on the dome but try and create different heights.
  2. If you prefer to pre-slice your cake you can dress each slice individually.

The great thing with the shards is any leftover pieces you can pop into a jar and keep in the fridge as a snack!

So whether it’s a whole cake or just a few slices, we’ve got your covered.
