This extremely simple recipe was developed by Herve This, the French chemist who coined the term “molecular gastronomy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 7 ounces good quality dark chocolate (Lindt 85 percent chocolate bar or 70 percent bar for less bitterness)
  • 23 cup water
  • 14 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 18 teaspoon sea salt (optional)


  1. Put water and chocolate into a medium saucepan over medium-low heat and whisk until chocolate is melted.
  2. Once homogeneous, pour the mixture into a bowl resting in a shallow pan filled with ice cubes to chill.
  3. Whisk the mixture until it thickens (if using an electric mixer, watch carefully because it will thicken much quicker).
  4. Once the consistency resembles that of whipped cream, dish into ramekins and either serve immediately or refrigerate until serving. If the consistency is off, just melt and start over again.
