  • 2 tbsp coffee liqueur

2. Add the vanilla and set aside.

3. Melt the white chocolate, and coffee liqueur together in a bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water.

5. Whisk the double cream to stiff peaks.

6. Fold the cream and the honeycomb into the egg mixture.

7. Pour into moulds and freeze for about 2 hours.

8. Freeze the berries at the same time.

11. Add the butter and sugar and stir to combine.

12. Remove from heat and pour over chocolate. Whisk vigorously until the chocolate has melted and the sauce is smooth.
