  • 100 g amaretti biscuits
  • 1 tbsp liqueur
  • 100 g chocolate
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 100 g sugar caster
  • 500 ml whipping cream lightly whipped
  • 1 vanilla pod slit open and seeds scraped out


  • Carefully line the base and sides of a 1 litre plastic container with a large piece of cling film (you must ensure there are no splits or gaps in it)
  • Set aside
  • Crush the amaretti biscuits in a bowl and stir in a generous splash of the liqueur
  • Spoon the mixture evenly over the base of the lined container and place in the freezer
  • Break up the chocolate and place in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water (taking care that the bottom of the bowl does not actually touch the water)
  • Allow to melt
  • Once melted, remove from the heat and leave to cool a little
  • Using an electric whisk, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until pale and thickened
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to form stiff peaks, then fold them into the yolks and sugar
  • Divide the mixture equally between 2 bowls
  • Add the melted chocolate to one bowl and mix well
  • To the other bowl add the cream, another touch of the liqueur and the vanilla seeds
  • Remove the container from the freezer
  • Pour in the chocolate mixture first
  • Lightly tap the container on a work surface to level the mixture, then pour the vanilla mixture over the top
  • Tap gently again to even out
  • Cover with cling film and return to the freezer overnight to set (it needs to freeze for at least 12 hours)
  • When ready to serve, allow to soften slightly at room temperature, then tip on to a chilled plate and cut into slices with a knife warmed in hot water
  • Serve immediately
