Serves: 6


  • 200g Waitrose Belgian Plain Chocolate
  • 100g Waitrose Belgian Milk Chocolate
  • 6 marshmallows, roughly chopped, from a 200g pack Toms Princess Marshmallows
  • 300ml half-fat crème fraîche
  • 150ml skimmed milk
  • 3 bananas, unpeeled, cut diagonally into 1cm slices


  1. Break the chocolate into squares and place in a large bowl with the chopped marshmallows. In a pan over a moderate heat, bring the crème fraîche and milk to just below boiling point.
  2. Pour the cream mixture over the chocolate and marshmallows. Mix well until the ingredients have melted and combined. Pour into 6 ramekins. Leave to cool, then cover and chill in the fridge until set.
