1/2 cup creme fraiche (or sour cream)

3.5 oz white chocolate 

3.5 oz milk chocolate

1. Melt, in a water bath, the dark chocolate and half of the creme fraiche. Pour across 8 small water glasses and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

2. Now, melt the white chocolate, the same way you melted the dark chocolate. 

3. With a hand blender, whisk the rest of the creme fraiche into thick chantilly cream. Slowly incorporate the melted white chocolate.

4. Bring out the 8 glasses from the fridge and make a second layer with this white chocolate concoction. Place in the fridge for 1 hour.

5. Melt milk chocolate, and add 2 egg yolks. Beat egg whites (video 1) and delicately mix them in (video 2). 

6. Take the 8 glasses out of the fridge and pour in a third layer with the milk chocolate mix. Store in the fridge for a minimum of an hour.

7. Before serving, feel free to top them off with fresh fruit like mango or peaches. Or an Italian biscuit.
