Recipe: Chocolate Fool

If you’re not British you might not be familiar with the concept of fool which is usually a kind of puree fruit dessert. This parfait was inspired by a Christmas fool using fruitcake posted to the BBC but also didn’t really fit the definition of “fool”. In the end it’s basically a chocolate cake with fruit and whipped cream in a glass and you can call that whatever you like but the name “fool” is cute for a dessert so it’s fine if that’s what you want to call it. I used this chocolate cake recipe which takes about 5 minutes to throw together but feel free to use store bought cake or your own favorite chocolate cake.
