Step 1

Melt the chocolate with the orange juice and zest in a pyrex bowl over a simmering pan of water making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Stir until melted.

Step 2

Once melted, take off the heat and beat the egg yolks into the mix then add the cointreau

Step 3

Whisk up the egg whites until you have a nice fluffy texture. You should be able to make little peaks that don't collapse back into the rest of the mix. Then slowly fold the chocolate mix to this (don't beat or whisk). Then pour the lot into 4 separate heart shaped ramekins and chill until ready to eat.
