While this isn't the version being served at the Jubilee, this chocolate delice is worth making in honor of the festivities.

While others may be concerned with what Queen Elizabeth and Duchess Kate are rocking on the Jubilee red carpet, we’re hungry for details on the event’s royal eats.

The menu features a host of locally-sourced goodies, including marinated salmon with Lyme Bay crab, Welsh Cambrian Mountain lamb with braised shoulder of lamb, grilled Isle of Wright asparagus and Jersey Royal potatoes.

We can’t forget the “symphony of dessert”: Chocolate delice, bread and butter pudding and berry compote with Sandringham apple sauce.

And no, that’s not a typo (as Matt Lauer suggested it might be "chocolate delight")! Those of us across the pond may be less familiar with chocolate delice, and now is the perfect time to get better acquainted. The dessert, which is popular in the U.K., features multiple layers including a biscuit base, chocolate, cream, caramel and sugar icing, plus a whole host of optional ingredients to give it a twist.

Try your hand at this version from LeaveRoomForDessert.com -- it's currently making us drool all over our keyboards as we type.
