That’s goodtoknow

To make mini chocolate cases use 12 mini silicone muffin cases. Drop a spoonful of melted chocolate into the base then brush up the sides of the case with a small clean paint brush.


  1. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Leave until melted then remove from the heat and stir until smooth. Cool for 10mins, stirring occasionally.
  2. Place 6 silicon cupcake cases on a baking tray. Using a pastry brush liberally brush the melted chocolate inside the cases to coat them completely. Place the baking tray in the fridge for about 15mins until the chocolate has set. Keep the rest of the chocolate warm by setting the bowl over the pan of hot water again.
  3. Brush another layer of melted chocolate in the cases and chill again until set. Very carefully peel away the silicone cases and place the chocolate cups on a serving plate.
  4. Whip the cream until softly peaking then fold in the custard. Divide between the chocolate cups. Top with the bananas and redcurrants then dust lightly with cocoa powder and drizzle with warmed golden syrup. Serve within 2-3hrs of filling.
