  1. 1Use a large knife to cut some shavings off the chocolate and set aside for decoration. Set the rest of the chocolate aside.

  3. 3Combine 1dl milk set aside earlier with the cornflour and eggs. Pour the chocolate milk into the egg mixture (see tip 1). Pour the mixture back into the pan and bring to the boil over medium heat, stirring continuously.

2. Lay a sheet of cling film directly onto the cream to prevent a skin forming on the surface while cooling.
