Serious chocolate fans will know the name of Godiva well. It's been a luxury Belgian chocolate brand for 80 years and now its first cookery book has just been published.

Chock-ful of wonderful recipes (excuse the pun!) Life's A Praline is a chocolate lover's dream, with lots of delish treats dreamed up by the Godiva chocolate experts.

We've picked out this simple-to-make recipe, Strawberry pots with a shortbread-style base and white chocolate mousse, from it. As the chef says, the tangy strawberry and rhubarb contrast beautifully with the smooth and sweet white chocolate ganache.

  • 1 jar of strawberry and rhubarb jam
  • 250ml full fat crème fraîche
  • 250g white chocolate
  • 4-5 small strawberries (or 8-10 raspberries) to garnish
  • 200g shortbread biscuits
  • Equipment you will need
  • 8 – 10 small jars
  • 2 piping bags with plain nozzles
  • Whisk


1 Melt the white chocolate by placing it in a heatproof dish over a saucepan of simmering water (bain-marie).

2 Lightly whisk the cream (but it must remain liquid).

3 Pour a third of the cream into the melted chocolate and stir. Add the rest of the cream and whisk until it reaches the consistency of a mousse.

4 Crush the shortbread biscuits into powder.

5 Spoon some jam into the bottom of each jar or use the piping bag. Sprinkle some crushed biscuit powder onto the jam.

6 Using another piping bag, layer the white chocolate mousse over the biscuit powder.

7 Garnish each jar with a strawberry or a raspberry.
