Had these scrummy desserts in Matt's restaurant - amazingly rich. Perfectly ended the meal.

The flavour is marvellous. My boyfriend said lucky to have me as his gf ;P. I'm lucky to have Good Food Channel! It's such a simple, easy made recipe! For those who prefer a more manageable portion. I used 100g chocolate; 150ml double cream; just 50ml or less full fat milk; 1 egg yolk and 3-4 tea spoon of icing suger. Put little bit at a time to control the texture. I made 4 little dessert pot. I served with fresh strawberries. The dessert gave a perfect finish for the night! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!

this recipe is delicious, but very very generous, i was feeding 12 so bought double the ingredients, but when i was weighing them out, there was masses. so I used exactly the recipe above, and it made 25 little pots! we've been eating them all week!!

Absolutely scrumptious !! So easy to make but I found the quantities a bit generous. They look great served in little espresso cups and saucers with tiny serving spoons on the side. More More More !!!
