  2. Stir in the chopped chocolate stirring until all is dissolved

Combine the Melted Chocolate and Eggs

  1. Pour this chocolate milk over the whipped eggs whilst whisking - this can be done in 2 or 3 stages
  2. It is advisable to strain the mixture first before continuing
  3. Then allow the mixture to mature in the fridge for 1 – 2hours OR overnight if possible 

*Note: This is an important step in allowing the proteins in the egg to absorb as much free water as possible. Making the texture of the custard so much more fuller in the mouth   *

Bake
