This dessert is delicious as it has the sweet, buttery taste of the croissants and dark chocolate, combined with the tartiness of tinned plums.

It is also quite rich and although I had a large meal, I could not help myself in having a large portion of this dessert.

It would be a hit with visitors and partners alike!
