FOR SALTED CARAMEL CHOC POTS

  1. Melt the butter, sugars and syrup in a pan, swirling occasionally for 3 minutes. Add the cream and salt and stir with a wooden spoon. Be careful, it is very hot! Pour carefully into a jug. Pour roughly a tablespoon into each glass, to cover the bottom by 1/2 inch. Place in the fridge to cool.
  2. Melt your chocolates in a bowl over simmering water. Snap your grissini into 4 short, even lengths. Dip each end into the melted chocolate and set aside on a wire rack to drip and set slightly. Then dip each end of the grissini into the brown sugar to coat. Place in an airtight container until ready to serve.
  3. Stir the double cream and milk into the chocolate and stir until smooth. Pour on top of the caramel and chill for 2 hours or up to 24 hours. Sprinkle a little sea salt over each pot to serve and lay your grissini on top of the glass.       (Recipe adapted from BBC Good Food Magazine)
