Toblerone Tipple

I was looking for a simple cocktail dessert to go with a Jamie's 30 Minute Meal I was preparing and went back to my (late) childhood to a dessert I remember my parents making.

It's a quick an easy recipe - perfect for the 30 minute meal concept and I've no idea where it came from, but I've suitably adapted it from the original!

This recipe does come with a warning. It's perfect for the boozy Sweet Adventures Blog Hop cocktail blog hop hosted by JJ from 84th&3rd and is inspired not only by my childhood, but my hubbie's recipe for the Toblerone creamy cocktail!

Toblerone Tipple - makes 6 low ball or large wine glasses

600ml thickened cream
250g mascarpone cheese
4 tablespoons honey
1 x 30ml measure of each of the following liqueurs:
Sabra (Israeli choc. orange liqueur, could substitute with Cointreau but not quite as good)
24 Chocolate Chip cookies
Sprinkle of cocoa for serving

Whip the thickened cream until just before it forms stiff peaks;
Add the mascarpone and honey and whip a little more till just combined;
Mix the 4 liqueurs in a plate or shallow bowl;
Spoon a layer of cream on the bottom of each glass;
Dip 6 chocolate chip cookies in the liqueur mix and leave to soak for a few seconds;
Place one choc chip cookie in each glass;
Layer again alternating between cream and soaked cookies - I did 3 layers with 2 biscuits halved for each top layer, as the glass was wider at the top, but you can do 4 layers if you prefer;
If there is excess liqueur mix, drizzle this over the final layer of cookies;
End the layering process with a final layer of cream;
Cool in the fridge until ready to serve;
Just prior to serving sprinkle a little coooa over the top before digging in.
