Ingredients:

200g (7oz) white chocolate

100g (3.5oz) dark chocolate

60g (2oz) unsalted butter

2 tbsp double cream

3 medium eggs

Method

This is a rich pudding for chocoholics. Use good quality chocolate with more than 60 per cent cocoa solids for best effect. Enough for four.

Break up the white chocolate and melt in the cream in a basin over a pan of warm water.

Remove from the heat and beat in the butter quickly. Separate the eggs and stir the yolks into the chocolate. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture.

Pour into individual serving glasses and chill well. When the mousse has begun to set, melt the dark chocolate over warm water and pour over the surface of each mousse.

Let the dark chocolate harden before serving.
