I’ve been jonesing for this dessert for a while now and finally two days ago I was able to make it. I wanted something with the same soft and delicate texture but has different tastes, namely, bitter (chocolatey bitter), sour (almost ripe mango kind of sour) and sweetened cream.
Although I normally make this dessert in big portions using a relatively medium sized rectangular pan (with lid), I ended up using one of my single serve tin cans that I use for baking muffins before. I was hoping to take a really enticing photo. It didn’t go exactly as planned. While I was removing the dessert from its mold, the cream part started to lose its shape and it seemed that I choose the wrong materials for the shoot.I had no choice but to continue because I have already removed it from the tin can and it was starting to melt.
As for the recipe, you’ll need the following: ripe mango, oreo cookies, condensed milk and 1 can heavy cream.
Separate the cookies from its cream filling then grind them to make a fine powder. For every three pairs of cookies, use at least 2 tbsp of melted butter to glue them together to make the base. Press the cookie and butter mixture into the tin can. Set aside. Slice the mango flesh as thinly as possible. I did use an overripe mango for this one but it still turned out a bit sour, I don’t know why. Anyways, once sliced layer them on top of the chocolate base. I used about 3 spoonfuls of sliced mangoes. Next, mix the cream and condensed milk. I suggest you start with the cream and slowly add the condensed milk checking the level of sweetness as you go. Some people like it really sweet and I don’t so I usually go for 1/2 cup cream to just about 1/4 condensed milk. Pour over the mango layered base. Cover. Then freeze for at least 4-6 hours.
My cousin didn’t like the layered tastes but I loved it. For some reason it made excited so I decided to make more.
This week I was filled with boredom due to the fact that my sleeping habits’ been disturbed. I was in a middle of finishing a project and I was in a hurry so I had to shorten my sleeping hours. I’m almost finished now with the project so I guess its fine.
Oh yeah, it’s that the beginning of the school year once again. That soon huh.
