Preparation

Break the chocolate into a bowl, stand over a saucepan of simmering water and melt. Separate the egg whites into a large mixing bowl, remove the chocolate from the heat and stir in the egg yolks and alcohol.

Whisk the egg whites until firm, gradually add the sugar and whisk until stiff peaks form.

Whip the cream to a dropping consistency and set aside until required.

Give the egg whites a final beating with a rubber spatula, add the chocolate and fold all the ingredients together gently, retaining as much air as possible.

Fold in the loosely whipped cream, turn into four glasses or bowls and chill until ready to serve.

Decorate with flaked chocolate and dust with icing sugar.

Heaven on a spoon!!
