Marshmallow Semifreddo

The time for entertaining will soon be here and this just might be the dessert to fill the bill.

The chocolate cannot be more than 60% cacao. With that in mind, read on.


You will need:

  • 2 cups cold whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp. finely grated lime peel
  • 2 jars of marshmallow creme
  • 5 oz. coarsely grated bittersweet chocolate
  • 6 oz. chopped chocolate
  • 5 oz. finely chopped, toasted pistachios
  • 5 oz. dried peaches
  • 2 tbsp. Southern Comfort liqueur

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream and lime peel until peaks form. Add all the marshamallow creme and beat until fully incorporated. Gently fold in the grated chocolate, pistachios and peaches. Pour this into an 8″ springform pan and smooth the top. Cover with foil and freeze for a day.

Now just before serving, whisk the chopped chocolate, Southern Comfort and 2 tbsp. of water in a small saucepan until melted and smooth.

Cur around the semifreddo to loosen and remove the sides. Slice as you would a cake and spoon some of the warm sauce over the top.

This will serve 8-10 people. there will be no leftovers. This is a silky smooth dessert and watch that no one licks the plate. You could serve this with a citrus lace cookie. (recipe on this site).

In a word or two….yummy-yummy
