Cheat's Posh Dessert!!

We were in our local SuperValu cafe this week having a spot of lunch, when this beautiful dessert caught my eye. It looked and tasted really delicious (they were divine), but what was best of all is how simple it is to put together. This will be a show stopper the next time I'm cooking for friends. If you are really short on time, this will be just as dramitic with good quality shop bought cookies and ready whipped cream, and I suggest that you use the chocolate ice cream sauce that sets when it's poured over ice cream, it will drizzle easier and stay put!!

Serves 4

250ml Whipping cream
2tsp Caster sugar
Chocolate ice cream sauce
Icing sugar to dust

Whip the cream and sugar until it is at the soft peak stage. Insert a medium sized star nozzle into your piping bag and fill the piping bag with the cream.

Pipe a small rosette in the centre of your presentation plate, this will stop the whole creation sliding off the plate!!

Set a cookie on top of the rosette and press down firmly, pipe a swirl of cream onto the cookie.

Continue to layer until you have a tower of three cookies.

Drizzle with the chocolate sauce and then dust with the icing sugar. This will keep in the fridge for 1-2 hours but the cookies will become very soft if left too long.
