  • 115 g quality chocolate

  4. Pour the liquid gradually into the yolk-sugar mix while slowly whisking, until everything is well combined.

  6. Pour some of this cream on the chopped chocolate and stir with a spatula. Add some more and stir again. Repeat until there's no cream left.
  7. Stir well but slowly until you have a smooth and shiny chocolate cream.
