  • 200g dark dessert chocolate
  • 20cL thick pasteurised cream

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Break the chocolate into pieces, melt it in a saucepan and add the cream. Mix well.

Separate the egg whites from the yolks. In a large bowl, whisk the yolks with the sugar until the mixture whitens. Add this mixture to the melted chocolate.
