  • 300 ml whipping cream
  • 120 g white chocolate + 20g grated for decoration
  • 1 tbsp rose water
  • 1/2 tbsp orange flower water
  • 1 egg white
  1. Place a mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes (I just put it outside - brrr!)
  2. Meanwhile, break 120g of the white chocolate into a saucepan and heat very  gently together with 50ml of the cream, rose and orange flower waters. As soon as it's melted (after about 5 minutes), set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Using an electric beater, whisk the rest of the cream with the egg white to medium-firm peaks. Gradually pour in the melted chocolate mixture and continue whisking until completely mixed together.
  4. Pour into individual serving glasses and sprinkle on the grated white chocolate. Set aside in the fridge until needed.
Recipe Notes

Halve the quantities if you're serving just for a romantic couple but this does keep easily until the next day in the fridge.
