Directions

1. Starting with the compote, add the cherries to a wide saucepan with two tbsp of water and bring to a boil. When the fruit
starts to soften, add the brandy and the sugar.
2. Bring it back to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes until thickened. Spoon into a clean jar and set aside to cool.
3. In a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter together with a tablespoon of water.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
4. Using a stand mixer or electric hand whisk, beat the egg yolks with 60g of the caster sugar until pale and creamy in
colour (about 3 minutes). Fold into the warm chocolate mixture.
5. In another mixing bowl, beat the egg whites together with the remaining 20g of sugar until soft peaks are formed. Fold
into the chocolate mixture, spoon equally into serving glasses and chill for a minimum of 2-3 hours.
6. Whip the cream together with the icing sugar and vanilla until thick, being careful not to over whip. Top each of the
chocolate pots with a spoon of cream and a spoon of the cherry compote.
