Recipe Method
1. Break up the chocolate and place with the unsalted butter in a warmish oven for about 15 minutes. 2. Remove and stir until melted and blended together. 3. Over a low heat dissolve the sugar in the water then turn up the heat and boil rapidly for a few minutes to get a light syrup. It's ready before the syrup takes any colour, when a little dropped on to a cold plate forms a thread when stretched between finger and thumb. 4. Leave the mixture to cool for just a minute. 5. Place the egg yolks in a basin and begin whisking (ideally with an electric whisk), trickling in the hot syrup as you go. 6. Continue whisking until the mixture is thick and mousse-like. Whisk in the cream. Then fold in the melted chocolate and butter until thoroughly blended. 7. Pour the mixture into an ice cream machine and churn until frozen.
