Ingredients

  • 2 gelatine leaves
  • 160ml whey
  • 200g dark chocolate (70%), melted (save a chunk for shaving over)
  • 300ml double cream

Method

  • STEP 1

    In a small bowl, soak the gelatine leaves in cold water.

  • STEP 2

    In a small saucepan over a medium heat, warm the whey until steaming. Squeeze the sheets of gelatine and add to the whey, stirring until they have completely dissolved. Leave to cool slightly.

  • STEP 3

    Add a splash of the whey mixture to the melted chocolate, mix thoroughly, then continue to gradually combine the two. The mixture should be very glossy.

  • STEP 4

    Whisk the cream to medium peaks. Add a spoonful of the cream to the chocolate mixture and stir well. Fold in the rest of the cream, working quickly. Spoon into dessert glasses and chill for 3 hrs. Serve each one with a large pinch of sea salt and some chocolate shavings sprinkled over.
