Method

1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over boiling water then stir in the butter until melted. Leave to one side to cool.

2. Whisk the egg yolks & sugar until pale and fluffy. Stir into the COOLED chocolate mixture.

3. In seperate bowls, whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks.

4. Then whisk the double cream to soft peaks.

5. Fold the egg whites then the cream gently into the chocolate mixture until combined.

6. Put into cups or ramikins and chill for a few hours to set.
