Adapted from Nigella Lawson, Nigella Express Cookery Book



  • 150g Marshmallows (mini or large white, needs the cornflour dusting)
  • 50g Unsalted Butter
  • 250g Good Quality Dark Chocolate
  • 60 ml Hot Water (from a recently boiled kettle)
  • 284 ml Double Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  1. Put the marshmallows, butter, chocolate and water in a heavy-based saucepan. Over a gentle heat, melt the ingredients, stirring every now and again, until the marshmallows have completely melted through and there are no lumps. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
  2. In a Kitchenaid mixer, whip the cream with the vanilla extract until thick, and then fold into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth mixture.
  3. Pour or scrape into 4 glasses or ramekins, about 175ml / ¾ cup each in capacity, or 6 smaller (125ml / ½ cup) ones, and chill until you want to eat. Get ready to dive straight into chocolate heaven.
