Monday, 11 April 2011

I made this for some non-dieting friends and it's seems so induldgent that they had no idea it was only 139 calories per serving!

Serves 4
139 calories per serving

75g good quality plain chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids)
Splash of orange juice
2 medium eggs
1 teaspoon caster sugar

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over bowling water.  Stir the oranges juice into the melted chocolate and remove from the heat.

Separate the eggs.  Whisk the whites into stiff peaks in a clean bowl, then fold in the sugar

Beat the egg yolks and mix them into the chocolate

Fold the egg whites into this mixture very gently

Place the mixture into individual ramekins and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

Savour every single mouthful.  Mmmmm.


  1. This sounds delishhh, must try... I have been a bit naughty with my diet this week and feel ever so guilty x

  2. Oh WOW. This looks seriously amazing!

  3. This sounds amazing! Definitely have to try this :) I definitely need to get a new mixer first, trying to whisk egg whites is painful on the arms with only a fork! Although it could be a form of exercise? :P xxx

  4. Mmm this looks yummy, do you think it would work with milk chocolate? I only have milk in! Also what do you use to count the cals in your recipes? xx
