Tip ~ When using white chocolate treat it gently, don't over heat it otherwise it might become 'grainy'.


250g white chocolate, broken into small pieces

250ml double cream

1 egg white

¼ teaspoon peppermint extract

6 fresh mint leaves - optional


  • Put the pieces of white chocolate in a heat proof bowl, and sit this bowl over a pan of simmering water until the chocolate melts, stirring gently with a spatula every now and then.
  • When it is melted, allow to cool.
  • In another bowl, use an electric hand mixer, whip the cream, egg white and peppermint extract together. You want a softly peaking rather than stiff mixture.
  • Put a big dollop of cream onto the slightly cooled chocolate and mix in and then gently fold this chocolate mixture into the cream.
  • Divide the mixture between 6 small glasses (with a capacity of 60ml each).
  • Chill in the fridge and serve decorated with a mint leaf if using.
