• 12 gingernut biscuits
  • 25 g butter, melted
  • 850 g can Wattie’s Black Doris Plums in Syrup
  • 120 g white chocolate, chopped
  • 250 g pottle cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup cream, lightly whipped to soft peak stage

1. Place gingernuts in a food processor and process until crumbed, or crush with a rolling pin.

2. Stir melted butter into the biscuit crumbs. Spoon the crumbs into the base of 6 serving glasses.

3. Drain Wattie’s Black Doris Plums in Syrup, reserving syrup. Cut the plums into quarters, removing the stones. Reserve 6 plum quarters and mash the remaining with a fork. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or in a bowl over hot water and set aside to cool.

4. Beat the soft cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the melted white chocolate and mashed plums. Carefully fold through the lightly whipped cream.

5. Divide the plum mixture between the serving glasses. Chill for 10 minutes.

6. To serve, top with a plum and pour over a little of the reserved plum syrup.

Generations of Kiwis have loved Black Doris Plums. Wattie’s makes sure this continues, picking only the finest plums from Hawke’s Bay orchards.

loved this, instead of individual ones I made one big one BUT I did it 'upside down' ie put the plums on the bottom of a big glass bowl, then the mousse. I sprinkled the ginger nut (gluten free ones of cause!) mixture over the mousse just before I served it. Meant it kept the crunch!. I did double the recipe too so even after feeding 10 we're having more tonight!! YUMBO!!!

Love this - as did all who ate it (& came back for more!) I made it in one large glass dish - it looked impressive, but oh so easy to make!

can anyone please tell me what pottle cream cheese is?

Hi Karthik,

Thanks for your query, a pottle of cream cheese is just another name for a tub of traditional cream cheese.

These were really good! I used 6 ramakins and made individual desserts but this could easily be adjusted to make a full “cake” style dessert which I will try next time. A mix of sweet and tart - delicious! So easy too!
