Our hunt for the perfect mid-week dessert ended at Sumeet Vyas’s Instagram page. The Veere Di Wedding actor was caught staring at a decadent looking dessert and, like all of us, was struggling to stay on his diet. Sharing the photo, the actor wrote, “Kaise roku khudko (How do I stop myself?).” Well, we can feel his plight but we have to admit that we are more interested in what was on Sumeet’s plate. While the actor did not reveal the name of the dessert we were able to catch a glimpse of some of the ingredients that went into making it.
The first thing that catches your eye is the generous amount of chocolate in the dish. The dessert shaped almost like a dome seems to be an exaggerated version of a chocolate truffle. This was paired with chunks of chocolate cake. Along with it, the dish contained some yummy scoops of jam that also served as the base on which the dessert was built.
For the topping, the richness of the chocolate and jam was balanced by the freshness of berries that included strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Also, is that some peanut butter topping we spot there?
That’s not all. The bite in the dessert comes from the nuts which included fox nuts and almonds, among others. We also spotted a leaf or two used to garnish the dessert.
The dessert was made with heaps of everything sweet and delicious
While we don’t have the recipe for the decadent dessert, we sure did find something close enough for you to whip up at home. The Chocolate Marquise is a dessert that is paired with berries to create a unique gastronomic experience. It uses ingredients such as melted dark chocolate, eggs, cocoa powder, coffee, and berries.
And, Sumeet Vyas is definitely not the first to swoon over the chocolate-berry combination. The classic pair of flavors have made for many fun and iconic desserts. Take, for instance, this delicious chocolate strawberry cake. This recipe combines the two by stuffing juicy strawberries in between layers of chocolate cake, making each bite a perfect mix of freshness and chocolatey goodness.
