Quark chocolate semifreddo

Quark chocolate semi freddo

As much as I love Christmas pudding and mince pies, occasionally, just occasionally mind, I feel the need to finish a meal with something cold and palate cleansing. As I don’t have an ice cream maker a semi freddo is just the ticket. Using quark lightens the dish and again I like the sightly acidic quality quark brings as I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth when it comes to desserts. I used chocolate in this recipe but next time I could just as easily make a strawberry semi freddo.
