Method

Beat egg yolks in a small bowl on high speed for about 3 minutes, or until thick and lemon coloured. Gradually beat in sugar.

Put 1 cup whipping cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot. Gradually stir half of the hot whipping cream into egg yolk mixture; stir back into hot cream in the saucepan.

Cook over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly; until mixture thickens (do not boil). Stir in chocolate chips until melted.

Cool, cover and refrigerate about 2 hours, stirring occasionally, just until chilled.

Beat 1 1/2 cups whipping cream in a medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Fold chocolate mixture into the whipped cream.

Spoon the mixture into serving bowls and serve.

Ready in 2 hours 30 mins (Serves 6)
