It's only been three days, give it a chance! Though, we don't have heavy whipping cream in the UK, the nearest thing we have is whipping cream but it's lower in fat than your heavy stuff. I will post a recipe that should work for either though!

I agree. It's a great ingredient, and December is just a really busy month for everyone.

It'll work, and I'll try and post something after I do all the shopping, wrapping, get Christmas cards sent, make the baklava, and cookies, go to seven holiday party/dinner/lunch thingies, get the car into the shop, go to three appointments, see my brother's new town house, help my mom, figure out what to get for two additional December birthdays, find some chocolate colored chinos to go with this really cute, sparkly top that was on clearance for $12.97 and, oh yeah ... work full time. Whew.

Be back around the 26th or later ... Happy, Blessed Holiday season to one and all!

I know it's busy..that's why I was wondering if we should just postpone this month and do HWC in January.

Hershey Bar Pie

8 oz. Hershey bars (can be almond or dark by preference)
30 large marshmallows
1/3 cup milk
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 graham cracker crusts

Break Hershey bars into smaller pieces and add to a bowl or the top pan of a double boiler with the milk. Slowly melt over the double boiler, stirring periodically, until the chocolate and marshmallows have completely melted and combined. Set aside.

Whip one pint of heavy cream to soft peaks. Once chocolate mixture has cooled until the bowl can be touched without burning your hand, fold the chocolate into the whipped cream until it's completely blended and smooth. Pour into two graham cracker crusts and refrigerate at least eight hours or preferably overnight to set. Serve with more whipped cream and enjoy

This is a family favorite...something I remember having at Christmas as a child and now make for others around the holidays. You can certainly buy your graham crusts or change the graham crackers for Oreos for extra chocolatey goodness.

Default Ruby's Eton Mess



For the Mess
450g / 1lb fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
500ml/1 US pint of heavy whipping cream/double cream
4 tsp caster/superfine sugar
1/2 a pinch of salt
4 individual meringue nests/shells
Glug of Kirsch (optional)

For the Coulis
300g/11 ounces frozen raspberries (or canned drained raspberries)
100g icing sugar/confectioner's sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Takes about 15 mins to make start to finish

Put the chopped strawberries into a bowl with two teaspoonsful of the caster/confectioner's sugar sprinkled over them. Pour the kirsch on, if using, and gently combine. Leave to mingle.

Whizz the raspberries, icing/confectioner's sugar and lemon juice in/with a blender 'til smooth. Then pass it through a fine sieve using the back of a spoon, to get rid of the seeds.

Whip up the cream with the remaining two teaspoons of caster/superfine sugar, and half a pinch of salt until thick but still softish.

Break up the meringue nests into the bowl of whipped cream, making smallish bite sized pieces and some crumbs, and gently fold in. Add about three quarters of the strawberries to the cream/meringue mix, and gently combine, not over-mixing.

Arrange the mixture in four dishes or one large one, spooning the remaining strawberries on top/around the mixture. Drizzle as much or little raspberry coulis as you like, over the top and down the sides of the mixture, then serve immediately.

****************

You can make seasonal versions of this by using blueberries, or chopped persimmon or other fruit or berries you like, instead of the strawberries.

You can prepare the strawberries, cream and coulis in advance, then assemble the dish when you're ready to serve.

Amaretto Mousse

Serves 8-10

5 eggs, separated
1/2 cup of sugar
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup milk
1 envelope Knox (plain) gelatin
3 tablespoons cold water
1 pint heavy cream, whipped

Dissolve the gelatin in the water and let sit until needed.

Beat egg yolks and sugar, adding sugar gradually to the yolks, until they are thick and lemon colored. Add salt.

Scald the milk over medium heat, just until a scum forms on the surface. Add about half to the yolk mixture, pouring in a thin stream and beating yolks constantly as you pour. Add the yolks back to the remaining milk, and heat over low heat, stirring constantly. Do not let it boil. When it expands slightly and thickens, remove from heat. It should be thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon.

Add the gelatin and stir until it's completely dissolved. If the gelatin has set, you can can return the pan to low heat for no more than a minute to help it dissolve. Cool pan in a water bath. When completely cool, add vanilla and almond extract.

Beat egg whites until stiff, and carefully fold them in.

Fold in whipped cream.

Pour into a serving bowl and chill 4-5 hours or overnight.

To serve, spoon into bowls and drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons of Amaretto.
