Orange And Lemon Cream Crunch Dessert

Today i'm using the Orange and Lemon from my fruit bowl to make 2 delicious, quick and easy desserts.

Also needed for this recipe are:
500g Crushed Digestive Biscuits
4ozs Melted Butter
1pt Double Cream
14oz Tin Condensed Milk
Zest and Juice of 2 Lemons or Oranges
Food colouring (Optional)
Cocoa Powder (optional)
Melted or Grated, Plain Or Milk Chocolate For Decoration

First add the crushed digestives to the melted butter and mix well until all the biscuit has been coated then press into a large flan tin or equivalant. I'm distributing mine into individual pots. Refrigerate to harden.
Whip up the double cream until quite stiff, then add your condensed milk, citrus juice and zest and mix well.
Because i made both desserts i split the cream mixture, after adding the condensed milk, into 2 bowls and added the juice and zest of 1 lemon to one half and the juice and zest of 1 orange to the other.
With the orange i added 3 tbsps cocoa powder for a chocolate orange taste and to the lemon i added a few drops of yellow food colouring to give it a lovely lemon colour.
Spread your cream mixture over your biscuit base and leave in the fridge to set.
When serving you can make it look just that little bit more fancy by either grating chocolate over the top or melting some chocolate, coating a spoon with it and performing a "flicking" action over your dessert.
And here they are!
