  • 200 grams best-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped – TFD prefers E Guittard 63% Extra Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 ½ tablespoons water
  • ½ tablespoon Frangelico (TFD favorite) for a whisper of nutty flavor, Grand Marnier for a hint of orange or just water for an unadulterated chocolate experience
  • 4 large eggs, separated, at room temperature
  • pinch of salt
  • Matcha green tea powder for garnish


  1. Combine the chocolate and water/booze (if using) in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water).
  2. Heat until the chocolate is almost completely melted, stirring occasionally.Remove the bowl from the heat and stir until the mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool a little, then whisk in the egg yolks.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt to stiff peaks.Stir in ⅓ of egg whites into the chocolate mixture, then gently fold in the remaining.
  4. Divide between serving dishes and chill at least 3-4 hours. Add a VERY light dusting of matcha over each portion and serve immediately.
