    g

  • 30
    ml

  • 3
    eggs, whites only
  • 60

  • 100
    ml
    cream
 

Method

5 MIN
 

Finely grate 50g of the chocolate and put aside. Break the rest into small pieces and melt in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. Take the pot off the heat but keep the bowl over the hot water and stir in the brandy (if using).

In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Spoon in half the sugar and whisk again. Then add the rest of the sugar and whisk until glossy like a meringue. Whip the cream in a separate bowl.

Add a heaped serving spoon of the meringue to the melted chocolate to loosen the consistency. Then add the chocolate to the meringue and fold in lightly but thoroughly.

Fold in the whipped cream and add two-thirds of the grated chocolate.

Spoon the mixture into six bowls and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. Sprinkle the remaining grated chocolate over and serve.
