  1. Break chocolate into small pieces and then place them onto a double boiler. Warm up cream in a saucepan (don’t boil) then pour over chopped chocolate, leave for 2 minutes, then mix both ingredients to combine and place in the fridge to cool. Once cooled, whip chocolate mixture until thick and set aside.
  2. Crush biscuits with a rolling pin into a sand-like consistency, then mix with melted butter and set aside.
  3. To make the French meringue – whip egg whites until foamy, then start adding caster sugar gradually while whisking until stiff peak and glossy.
  4. To assemble, start with a layer of the biscuit mix in a medium glass, then a layer of caramel, then whipped chocolate ganache, top up with the meringue. Lastly, use a professional cooking torch with caution to toast the meringue. Serve and enjoy!
