    Ginger and butterscotch tarts

    • Vegetarian
    • Total time: Ready in 15 minutes, plus chilling 15 minutes

    Serves: 2


    50g Waitrose Continental Plain Chocolate
    1 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Crystallised Stem Ginger, finely chopped
    2 Askey’s Brandy Snap Baskets
    2 large scoops Waitrose Butterscotch Dairy Ice Cream
    2 tsp mixed peel
    8 blanched whole almonds, chopped


    1. Break three-quarters of the chocolate into pieces. Heat in a bowl in the microwave, for 30 seconds at a time, at medium power until melted (or melt in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water).

    2. Mix half the ginger into the melted chocolate. Brush the mixture generously on the insides of the baskets.

    3. Place them onto a baking parchment-lined plate and chill in the fridge for 5 minutes.

    4. Fill with scoops of ice cream and top with the remaining ginger, peel and chopped almonds. Use a vegetable peeler to shave over the remaining chocolate then serve.
