Ingredients

120 grams white chocolate, finely chopped
120 grams milk chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Conitreau
1 teaspoon chambord
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup 35% cream, heated
1/2 cup 35% cream, medium firm peaks
2 egg whites, whipped to medium firm peaks

  1. Place the chopped white chocolate in a large bowl over a double boiler on low with a teaspoon of Cointreau and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl place the milk chocolate with the Chambord over a double boiler on low and set aside
  3. Add the egg yolks and sugar to a small bowl and whisk until pale in color.
  4. In a saucepan, over low heat, bring 1/2 cup of the cream to a simmer, and slowly add the cream into the yolk and sugar mixture to temper. Pour the creamy mixture back into pan and stir with a wooden spoon until it coats the back of it.
  5. Pour half the hot mix over each bowl of chopped chocolate. Stir with separate spoons until completely smooth.

  8. Refrigerate until set, approximately 1 hour.
