Serves 2 | Prep Time | Cook Time


4oz bar of high-quality dark chocolate (7 of the 8 squares)
10oz heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup extra-fine granulated sugar
1 large egg white
Chocolate shavings, to garnish
2 tbsp Amaretto or other liqueur (optional)

-Break the chocolate into small pieces and set aside.

-In a small saucepan, heat half of the cream until it begins to boil

*Note: this happens faster if you preheat the saucepan before adding the cream*

-Turn off the heat, add the chocolate pieces and stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.

-Pour the mixture into a bowl set over a large bowl of iced water and add the rest of the cream and Amaretto, if using.

-Using a hand-held electric whisk, beat the mixture to soft peaks. Remove the bowl from the iced water.

-Separate egg white into a bowl

-Whisk the egg white with a hand-held electric beater until stiff peak.

-Add the sugar, a tablespoon at a time, and continue whisking to a soft meringue.

-Carefully fold the meringue through the chocolate mixture, then spoon or pipe into chilled serving glasses.

-Top with chocolate shavings or cookies or mint sprigs!
