An indulgent dessert - and you deserve it.


  • 120 g quality chocolate, preferably dark
  • 150 ml milk
  • 150 ml yoghurt (or cream)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 30 g sugar
  • 1 tblsp olive oil


  • Begin by melting the chocolate in a 'bain-marie'. Fill a large recipient with water, place on the heat and put a saucepan containing the chocolate in this water and allow to melt.
  • When melted and smooth, place the saucepan on a very low heat and stir in the milk. If too thick add a little more.
  • Meanwhile whisk the egg yolks with the sugar. Pour the warm chocolate mix on top of this and mix in until smooth.
  • Stir in the yoghurt mix (this is not traditional, cream can be used instead). At this point the chocolate mix could be flavoured further if desired -such as with a tablespoon of Grand Marnier, for example.
  • Finally stir in the olive oil, then transfer to small ramekins. Allow to cool before placing in the fridge for at least an hour.
