METHOD

 

Put the chocolate into a heatproof glass bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the bottom of the pan, and melt gently. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cinnamon, chilli flakes and alcohol.

 

Beat the egg whites until they form peaks, then add the sugar and beat again until it turns glossy.

 

Stir the egg yolks into the cooled chocolate and then slowly fold in the egg whites, little by little. Do not overmix.

 

Spoon into small glasses, decorate with orange zest, and allow to set in the fridge for 2–3 hours.
