1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water, then set the bowl aside and
let the chocolate cool a little.
2. Whisk together the egg yolks and 40g of the sugar for a few minutes until
the mixture thickens, becoming pale and fluffy. Pour in the cooled chocolate
and fold together gently.
3. Whisk the egg whites in a large clean bowl until they are stiff,
but not dry. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture becomes glossy.
4. Spoon a third of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and stir together -
you don't want any flecks of white. Gently fold in the remaining whites, then
pour into a serving bowl. Chill in the fridge overnight to set.
decorate with chocolate shavings before serving.
