Try this delightful frozen chocolate dessert recipe, made with a hint of fragrant fresh mint.


  • About 25 fresh mint leaves, plus extra for decoration
  • 400ml double cream
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 100g plain chocolate
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 75g icing sugar
  • Plain chocolate curls (We used Supercook Belgian chocolate scrolls from Sainsbury’s)


  1. Roll up 25 large mint leaves and cut into shreds (keep the small leaves for decoration). Place in a small pan with 300ml double cream and the caster sugar. Bring just to the boil, remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Break up the chocolate and place in a bowl. Microwave for 2-3 minutes until just melted. Stir in the egg yolks. Strain the cooled cream into the chocolate and whisk well.
  3. In a clean grease-free bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Whisk in the icing sugar. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites until smooth.
  4. Pour into 6 silicone muffin moulds or dariole moulds, cover with clingfilm, and freeze for 4-5 hours or overnight. Whip the remaining cream. Turn the parfait onto plates just before serving and decorate with little swirls of cream, some mint leaves and the chocolate curls.

  1. the texture and taste was absolutely amazing. you had a small hint of mint but i love mint so i may add more next time. i also got 10 instead of 6 but that may be because i used cupcake holders and they should have been bigger. they were easy to make and tasted absolutely amazing and would do it again 1000% and highly recommend.
