3. Beat the egg whites till stiff being careful not to over beat.

4. Mix the egg yolk mixture into the melted chocolate then gently fold in the egg whites. Pour into ramekins or paris goblets to serve.

This recipe works best with Cadburys Bournville Dark Chocolate although it isn’t 70% cocoa solids. It has been re branded and is now 60%cocoa solids which is not far off. I have made it using Green & Blacks 70% dark chocolate, but the texture is a lot heavier. Using the Bournville and then grating some chocolate containing 70% or even 85% cocoa solids on top may compensate here.
