      As only an occasional dabbler in the kitchen I did find this more of a fiddle than expected. I've never made a ruban or whisked egg whites before and did have to phone my mum to avoid total disaster. But now I've made it once the second attempt will be a much smoother, quicker operation and I can appreciate the simplicity of the recipe. It did involved all the bowls my house contained. i don't think that will change thought. I too used the best dark chocolate I could find and the result was really really rich and delicilous. The quantities stated made a much bigger vat than expected. I managed to feed 12 people easily - because it's so rich you don't really want a big helping. It would probably work very well with a shot of booze mixed in.

      What an awesome, rich dessert! It is so much easier to make than I initially thought, and so worth it! Thanks for posting!
