Chocolate Terrine

dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free chocolate terrine/chocolate log

Think of a chocolate truffle studded with yummy delicious morsels and then dusted with icing sugar – delicious, right? Well that’s the principle of this chocolate terrine – made in a terrine mould or simply formed into a cylinder; a slice of this chocolate terrine will please anyone.

The chocolate is rich and unctuous and the morsels inside crispy or chewy in alternate mouthfuls. It may just be a little more fancy chocolate refrigerator cake but it looks and tastes elegant enough to elevate it above children’s tea parties! Having said that it went down extremely well with my girls [and everyone else] as a luxury pudding option!
