The first thing you notice about Sheraton’s Sugar Hit is that it is a very generous serve. If it is allowed, then this is definitely a dessert to be shared.
The mille feuille has the texture of a soft biscuit interspersed with hazelnut praline, rather than chocolate puff pastry, but isn’t overly sweet. This layer is sandwiched between 2 quenelles each of light custard cream and dense chocolate mousse. A chocolate sauce is drizzled over the top and scattered with fine chocolate crumbs and candied orange peel pieces. There is an overall jaffa flavour but never fear if you’re a bit of a jaffa-phobe like me, as the peel can be easily pushed aside.
A cut strawberry sits alongside and the dessert is anointed with a thin pistachio biscotti, although neither are necessary to the main flavours. Uh, did I mention this dessert was on the large side?
*Sheraton is serving their Sugar Hit from 5:30pm each day until 10pm or so. Make sure you book to avoid missing out!*
