100g dark chocolate

3 eggs, separated

1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Melt the chocolate over a double-boiler or in the microwave. Let cool slightly and add the egg yolks and the vanilla extract if using. 

Delicately fold the egg whites, trying not to break them. Pour the mixture into 4 small ramekins and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
