125g sugar

8 Tbsp water

4 egg yolks

600ml double cream

To Decorate

2. In a saucepan,, combine the sugar with 6 tablespoons water and heat gently over a low heat, until the sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Turn up the heat and boil briskly for 3-4 mins until it becomes a thin syrup.  

3. In a large bowl, put the chocolate. Pour the hot syrup on the chocolate. Stir until it melts and becomes liquid. Add 2 tablespoons boiling water. Add the egg yolks and stir for a few minutes. Add the brandy.  

4. In a large bowl, beat the cream to a soft floppy consistency. Fold in the chocolate mixture.  Spread in the prepared springform, levelling the top with the back of a spoon. Cover with clingfilm and transfer to the freezer. Cool for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.


TO SERVE


5. Remove from the freezer, release from springform and transfer to a plate. Decorate with strawberries and dark chocolate.
