Method

 
Separate the eggs and place the yolks in a large mixing bowl.

Break the chocolate into squares and place in a microwaveable bowl, melt on high for 2 minutes, checking every 20 seconds until it has all melted.

Whisk the melted chocolate into the egg yolks (Make sure the chocolate is not too hot or the eggs will curdle), and add the whisky if using.

While that is cooling whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks. Fold half the egg whites into the chocolate mix and then the remainder.

Spoon into 8 ramekins or one large bowl. Place in the fridge to set, allow at least 2 hours.

Whip the  cream and either pipe or spoon some on each ramekin, decorate with leftover grated chocolate or scatter a few toasted almonds, add a cherry even!

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
