  1. Try swapping the elderflower cordial for blackcurrant flavour instead.

  1. This is a delicious dessert and perfect for a summer dinner party. However, way, way, way too much sugar, I used 50% of that recommended in the recipe and it was still very sweet. I would suggest use even less as the both the white chocolate and elder-flower cordial are also very sweet ingredients.
