Chocolate Charlotte Dessert Recipes

A couple of chocolate charlotte pie dessert recipes.

Recipe One

  • Soak a quarter of a package of gelatine in one-third of a cupful of cold water for two hours.
  • Whip one pint of cream to a froth, and put it in a bowl, which should be placed in a pan of ice-water.
  • Put ½ an ounce of shaved chocolate in a small pan with two tablespoonfuls of sugar and one of boiling water, and stir over the hot fire until smooth and glossy.
  • Add to this a gill of hot milk and the soaked gelatine, and stir until the gelatine is dissolved.
  • Sprinkle a generous ½ cupful of powdered sugar over the cream.
  • Now add the chocolate and gelatine mixture, and stir gently until it begins to thicken.
  • Line a quart charlotte-mould with lady fingers, and when the cream is so thick that it will just pour, turn it gently into the mould.
  • Place the chocolate charlotte dessert in a cold place for an hour or more, and, at serving time, turn out on a flat dish.
