In a heatproof bowl, set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt chocolate. Remove from heat. Add Irish cream and 1/4 cup (60 mL) cream and stir until smooth; set aside.

In a chilled bowl, whip remaining cream until firm peaks form; fold into cooled chocolate mixture. Divide into 5 dessert cups, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to one day.


Use high-quality chocolate with 70 % cacao for the best flavour.
