Chocolate marquise


  • Finely chop the chocolate and add it into a heat-resistant bowl.
  • Place the bowl over a saucepan with water boiling on low heat, making sure that the bowl does not touch the water (bain-marie), and stir the chocolate with a silicone spatula until it melts.
  • Cut the butter into pieces, add it to the bowl with the chocolate, and keep stirring until the ingredients are melted and homogenized.
  • Remove the bain-marie from the heat and add the vanilla extract into the bowl.
  • Separate the egg whites from the yolks.
  • Add the yolks, one by one, into the chocolate mixture -while it is still hot- whisking until the mixture is homogenized. 
  • Whisk for 2-3 minutes until the mixture’s temperature drops.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the egg whites, the salt, and beat them with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 2-3 minutes, until you get a firm meringue.
  • Add 1/3 of the meringue into the chocolate mixture and mix very well with the silicone spatula. 
  • Add the rest of the meringue and fold gently to keep the mixture airy. 
  • Line a 10x20 cm loaf tin with plastic wrap and make sure to cover its bottom and sides, leaving a 1-2 cm overhang. 
  • Pour the mixture into the pan and cover it with the overhanging plastic wrap.
  • Transfer the pan to the freezer for 10-12 hours, until the marquise is set.
  • Remove the pan from the freezer.
  • Serve the marquise with melted white chocolate and fresh cherries.
