I need inspiration for a simple fairly light dessert for five people please. It needs to be something that I can either prepare quickly in advance and put in the fridge or assemble easily on the evening. Nothing too heavy on whipped cream though.
On a similar vein to BecauseImWorthIt, how about chocolate fondue?
Make a panful of chocolate sauce with chocolate, golden or maple syrup to taste, booze, and butter (there are recipes all over t'internet) and serve individual warmed ramekins'full with marshmallows, chunks of brioche, strawberries, etc.
I have never yet served this and had anything but oohs, aahs, and yums, yet it's so little trouble compared to a 'proper' pudding.
