Chocolate Cherry Espresso Pots (vegan & gluten free)

I think I’m going through a dessert making phase again, it seems to happen a few times a year and now that I’m thinking about it, three times in fact – Christmas (of course), autumn when all you want is warm and comforting puddings and now in our gorgeous English summer when all the seasonal fresh fruit is at its best.

This dessert combines some of my favourite things; beautiful ripe cherries, chocolate and espresso. I’m definitely one of those people who love an espresso after dinner and if it can be combined with your dessert – even better right? (huge affogatto fan!).

These rich and decedent chocolate cherry ganache pots are the perfect size, not too big but they give you an amazing chocolate hit with little gooey cherries nestled inside.

Pretty special – I hope you love them as much as I do xxx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
