The coffee and caramel layers are quite nice with
The coffee and caramel layers are quite nice with good flavours, but is let down by the chocolate top layer, which has an odd consistency. It doesn't add anything to the dessert and comes across as rather waxy and bland. Would be better with something more vanilla or a darker chocolate. Needs a bit of texture to stop it being too sloppy.
Beautifully indulgent coffe-caramel desert in individual pots. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.
Ruined by the chocolate
The 3 layers look really pretty all sandwiched togetger & It looks like the white chocolate is going to be soft textured but its actually a thick layer of solid white chocolate & when I say thick, I mean THICK! It takes some real effort to crack it & whilst it tasted nice on its own, I found it a little too much & the sweetness overpowered the coffee mousse & it was a tad greasy. A dark chocolate top would’ve worked better. The mousse is fantastic though. Full bodied & exactly like a freshly brewed coffee, it was bitterer than I was expecting but it needs to be with so much white chocolate. The texture was also very good, smooth & silky with a light airiness which Was perfect as the caramel sauce underneath is rich & thick. The caramel was on the sweeter side but worked well with the coffee & tasted like a milky coffee shop drink. I loved the coffee caramel combo but again, it was the white chocolate that was jarring & let this down. It’s very close to being excellent but just stops short.
