This came about as a result of having a bowl of egg yolks lying in the fridge from all the egg whites I used for the my Brandied Strawberry Pavlova (recipe coming soon). It turned out as a luxuriously rich mousse, that I confess I have eaten, regularly and unashamedly, in bed—no sharing, of course!
This is one of my absolute favourite recipes, because it is so simple and turns out a really sophisticated dessert. It is very decadent, so a shot glass portion is perfect. Although I really do believe in using superior-quality chocolate (at least 70% cocoa content), this recipe works well with any decent regular milk chocolate.
