- 1 ⅓ cup of chopped dark chocolate 55% cocoa (200 g)
- 2 cups (tea) of fresh cream
- ¼ cup (tea) of cocoa powder
- Set aside the chopped chocolate in a large mixing bowl.
- Heat the cream in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Drizzle over the chopped chocolate as soon as the first boiling bubbles appear and leave for 2 minutes without stirring – this ensures that the chocolate melts evenly and without risk of chopping.
- Mix the chocolate and cream together with a wire whisk until the chocolate is melted. Pass the cocoa through the sieve and stir well until it dissolves – don't worry if there are a few cocoa specks left; they will dissolve when the whipped cream is beaten.
- Cover with film, keeping it in contact with the liquid to avoid the formation of vapor or a thick film. Refrigerate it for at least 3 hours – the chocolate cream should be very cold when whipped. Prepare the day before if you prefer.
