  • 3 1/2 cups heavy cream divided
  • 12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

To Serve:

  • Chocolate shavings
  • Whipped cream
  • Flaky salt


  • In a medium saucepan, heat 1 cup heavy cream over medium low heat. Add chocolate chips and melt. Whisk to incorporate. Once smooth, turn heat off and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well combined. Mix until pale yellow in color.
  • Slowly whisk chocolate mixture into egg yolks. Whisk for 2 minutes until well incorporated and no lumps exist. Mix in vanilla extract. Place mixture in refrigerator.
  • Using a hand mixture or stand mixture fitted with whisk attachment, beat remaining heavy cream until stiff peaks form, roughly 5 minutes.
  • Remove chocolate mixture from refrigerator. Gently fold in whipped cream until combined throughout. Use gentle hands for this step as to not lose the texture.
  • Spoon mixture to individual ramekins. Refrigerate 3 hours. When ready to serve, garnish with extra chocolate shavings and whipped cream, if desired. Sprinkle with flaky salt on top.
