Method

  • 01
  • Bring 150ml cream to the simmer in a saucepan over medium heat, squeeze excess moisture from gelatine and add to cream, stirring to dissolve. Place chocolate in a bowl, pour hot cream over and stir occasionally until chocolate melts (5-10 minutes), then cool, stirring occasionally until thickened but not set. Meanwhile, whisk remaining cream and crème fraîche to soft peaks, fold through chocolate mixture, transfer to six 250ml glasses and refrigerate until set (1 hour).

Add passionfruit juice and remove from heat. Cool, then strain through a fine sieve lined with muslin. Refrigerate until required.
