Number of Servings: 4

2 Cup(s) Double cream
1/3 Cup(s) Sugar
4 Tablespoon(s) Water
6 Ounce(s) Chocolate, plain
3 Egg yolks
Whisk 1/2 of the cream until stiff and spread it around the edges of a
large bowl. Freeze for 1/2 to 1 hour. Dissolve the sugar in the water,
bring to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes until syrupy. Meanwhile,
break chocolate into blender or warm bowl. Pour the hot sugar syrup
onto the chocolate and blend or whisk until the chocolate has all
melted. Add the egg yolks and mix the whole lot thoroughly. Whisk
the remaining cream into soft peaks and fold gently into the chocolate
mixture. Pour into the centre of the frozen cream and freeze for
several hours until solid. Cover when fully frozen. NOTES A
high-cholesterol chocolate dessert -- This recipe comes from a
friend's aunt. It always seems to taste wonderful no matter how
sloppily I measure things. Yield: Serves 4-6. Although the recipe
"serves 4-6," two people will happily eat the whole thing. The
outside is frozen solid, so you may find a fork useful for breaking
your portion into pieces without showering fellow diners with
fragments. It could be served in small portions, but don't count on
having any left over. Double cream has more than 45 percent
butterfat. It is difficult to find cream in North America that is
richer than whipping cream, which is typically 32 percent butterfat.
If you can find heavy cream it is likely to be 36 percent. Use the
richest cream you can find. : Difficulty: easy. : Time: 20 minutes
preparation, 3 hours cooling. : Precision: no need to measure. :
