You heard it right, we have got some amazing alcohol-infused dessert ideas for you today.

Warm Brandy Custard with Crunchy Chocolate Ginger Meringue Cookies
Believe us this dessert is going to bring you Christmas feels on a sultry monsoon afternoon.

Ingredients:

  • 100g brown sugar
  • 3 cups (360g) pure icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 cup (100g) good-quality cocoa
  • 30g dark (70%) chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 3 tsp mixed spice
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 600ml pure (thin) cream
  • A cinnamon quill
  • 100ml brandy

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C.

  • Line 2 trays with baking paper.

  • Place brown sugar, icing sugar, cornflour, cocoa, chocolate and spices in a large bowl and stir to completely combine it all.

  • Make a well in the centre of the mix and add the whisked egg whites and whole egg mixture, and fold together until well combined together.

  • Work with 1/4 cup mixture at a time, shape into rounds on baking trays, leaving 6cm between each cookie.
  • Then place trays in the oven and bake, swapping trays halfway, for 20 minutes or until just firm.
  • Remove from the oven and slide the baking paper with cookies onto wire racks to cool to room temperature.
  • For your brandy custard, whisk egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until it turns pale.

  • Place cream and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to just below boiling point.

  • Gradually start pouring the cream mixture over the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly, until well combined. Return to saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, for 6 minutes or until custard is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

  • Stir through brandy.

  • Dip cookies into the warm custard and voila you can serve it.

Liquor Chocolates
Can we say, this is such a cute idea to gift your near and dear ones? While liquor chocolates were very very premium in earlier times, now you can simply make them at home. It’s a rather easy recipe if you ask us.

Ingredients:

  • 500 grams of finely chopped dark chocolate
  • 3-4 tablespoons of Rum
  • 50-grams of Raisins
  • 250 grams Cream

Method:

  • Soak the raisins in rum for about an hour or two.
  • Then take cream and heat it on low flame (avoid boiling it).
  • Pour the cream on chopped chocolate and stir till the cream and chocolate blend well and form a creamy texture.
  • The proportion of cream and chocolate should always be 1:2, this is done so that balls can be formed easily from the mixture.
  • Add dipped rum and raisins into the cream-and-chocolate mixture, mix them well and chill the final mixture in the refrigerator for about half an hour.
  • Once the mixture is set enough to roll balls with it, take it out of the fridge.
  • Roll small balls with your hands.
  • You’re done!
