Preparation Method
  1. Chocolate \'Goo\' Method - 1) Put a glass bowl with the chocolate in, over a pan of boiling water. 2) When completely melted take off the heat and let cool slightly. Add the egg yolks. 3) Gently fold in the egg whites, careful not to beat out any of the air. The more air in the mixture the lighter the \'goo\' will be. 4) Once completely cool, fold in the whipped cream and any additional flavourings you want to add. 5) Pour into glasses or bowls and place in the fridge until required.
  2. Shortbread Method - 1) Heat the oven to 190\'C. 2) Beat the butter and sugar together, until completely combined. 3) Stir in the flour to create a smooth paste. Roll out the paste on a baking sheet, until it is 1cm thick. 4) Shape into a circle shape, sprinkle with 1 tsp of caster sugar. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. 5) Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. When cool cut into wedges,
  3. Raspberry Coulis Method - 1) Sieve the washed raspberries and discard the pulp left in the sieve. 2) Stir in the icing sugar. Now to assemble the dessert, take the glass of chocolate \'goo\' out of the fridge and put onto a small plate, place a wedge of shortbread and add a swirl of raspberry coulis (get some on a teaspoon, put a \'blob\' on the plate and use the back of the teaspoon and drags through the \'blob\'). Enjoy!
