  • whipped cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water; let cool a little.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks into the melted chocolate, one at a time, until well-combined; set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff.
  4. Loosen the chocolate mixture with 1 Tbsp of egg white.
  5. Fold in the remaining egg whites, making sure you do not lose too much volume.
  6. Spoon into 6 dessert glasses and chill until set.
  7. Serve with whipped cream, if desire.
