Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp amaretto (see notes for alternatives)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp butter

Instructions

  • Pour the heavy cream into a small saucepan and place over a medium heat. Heat the cream until it is almost boiling, but don't let it boil.
  • Remove the cream from the heat and set aside for 1 minute to cool slightly.
  • Whilst the cream is cooling add the brown sugar to the amaretto and stir to dissolve.
  • Add in the chocolate chips to the hot cream and stir until they have melted.
  • Add the amaretto mixture to the chocolate, along with the egg yolks.
  • Mix well together and then lastly stir in the butter.
  • Pour the mixture into small pots and chill for 4 hours or until needed.

Notes

Instead of amaretto, you could use dark rum or an orange liquor.
To remove the alcohol use extra cream instead.
