Fun-Fact: Perhaps you have already discovered the term Semifreddo on the menu of your favorite Italian. You may also have come across this vocabulary while browsing through your new Italian cookbook and wondering if the preparation of such a deliciously sounding dessert may be successful? What is Semifreddo and why is it absolutely necessary to cook the Italian delicacy? Semifreddo could be called half-frozen, a sort of ice-cream. The sweet specialty has the consistency of a frozen mousse. Semifreddo is made from cream, fruit and chocolate.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 1 Cake


  • 1.25 cup of condensed milk
  • 500ml whipped cream

  • 1 shot of Bailey’s
  • 0.5 cup of dark chocolate
  • Cocoa powder

Cut a chocolate into two rectangles (about the size of the square box shape).
