I invented a new dessert and recommend it to others. The main ingredients are yoghurt, mulberries, and chocolate-coated honeycombe. Here’s a photograph [update: replacement photograph uploaded in 2015], followed by details.
- Yoghurt (I suggest honey flavour, but alternatives are fine).
- 3 Chocolate-coated honeycomb cubes (link provided for benefit of Americans).
- Mulberry juice.
- Pour a modest amount of yoghurt into the bowl.
- Use a short, sharp knife to cut the three honeycomb cubes into quarters, as cleanly as possible.
- Press the quartered honeycombe cubes into the yoghurt one by one, chocolate sides facing down.
- Carefully spoon mulberries into the bowl, ensuring an even distribution.
- Spoon some mulberry juice around the edge of the bowl, framing the contents with a thin dark ring.
In my opinion the balance of flavours (sweet vs sour) and textures (smooth vs rough) is very pleasing.

- I think it’s amazing that we now have commercial products that read brainwaves. (I linked to another example last time.)
