Marquis Au Chocolat

Marquis Au Chocolat

18th May 2017

Are you looking for a unique dessert to impress guests? Why not try Marquis au Chocolat, translated to chocolate marquis, a beautiful and rich chocolate French dessert.... with a twist. Add a little blue cheese! Many cheese masterclasses are using many different pairings, including chocolate and cheese. This is not an intense blue taste, but more subtle hits of salt and blue cheese. We used this recipe for a family members birthday and it was a huge hit! Watch out My Kitchen Rules :) 

Ingredients (for 6 people):

- 250 g of dark chocolate

- 100 g of sugar

- 200 g of butter

- 6 eggs

- roughly 70g blue cheese 

Preparation of the recipe :

Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. 

Melt the chocolate, add sugar, egg yolks and butter. Work it all into a mixture.

Beat the egg whites until they are light, airy, but set. To check if it’s ready, pour the bowl, if the mixture barely moves, it should be ready. 

Bit by bit, slowly add and fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Continue until there is no egg whites. Crumble some blue cheese of choice (we used Fourme d'Ambert) into mixture and fold in. We only used 70g's, but you can use more if you want the blue cheese flavour stronger. 

Line a cake mould or bread tin with cling wrap and spoon mixture in.

Put in the freezer for at least 48 hours.

Unmould and serve with whip cream and almond praline.
