how to make chocolate and hazelnut cups

These chocolate and hazelnut cups can be a luxurious dessert for a dinner party or an indulgent treat.
60g caster sugar

2 large eggs separated

100g of 70% dark chocolate - keep 15g back for grating

150g of O% fat Greek-style yogurt

50g of crushed hazelnuts

  1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until fluffy.
  2. After the chocolate has cooled a little (go careful here) whisk the melted chocolate into the egg yolks.Then, fold in the yogurt until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Whisk the egg whites in a bowl to stiff peaks. Fold this with a metal spoon into the chocolate mixture, adding the hazelnuts.
  4. Put the mixture into four espresso cups and place in the fridge for an hour or so.
  5. Serve with a sprinkle of grated chocolate.
     This is a recipe I made when friends came for dinner. Luscious, velvety and smooth.
