Serves six (or an indulgent two!)


  • 175 g plain chocolate broken in pieces
  • 250 ml cream
  • 1 egg
  • pinch salt
  • 0.5 tsp vanilla essence



  • Heat the cream in a jug in a 700w microwave for 1 minute on max.
  • Break the chocolate into it into as small pieces as possible and leave for 3 minutes to melt.
  • Give it a stir and if necessary put back into the microwave to melt for another minute to melt all the chocolate.
  • Pour into a liquidiser, add the egg, salt and vanilla essence and blend quickly.
  • Alternatively put the mixture in a bowl with the egg and whisk with a hand whisk.
  • Pour the mixture (it’ll be quite liquid still) into six small (or two large) pots, or glasses.
  • Chill for several hours or overnight until it is quite firm.
  • Serve with a smile and enjoy!
