Baileys Chocolate Waffles

Laura and I made these for her sister’s birthday. The chocolate mixture tasted delicious and I hear they were a great hit at the
birthday lunch. They really were very easy for such a great looking and delicious dessert! Very 80's, but very yummy!

260g dark Belgium chocolate
2/3 cup thickened cream
2 tbsp castor sugar
3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
25ml Baileys Irish Cream
Waffle ice cream cones

Depending on the size of the cone you want, break away the top of the ice cream cone. Melt 100g chocolate and dip the waffle cones in them. Leave to set. Once they're set, place them in shot glasses to help them stand up straight.
Whip the cream until soft peaks form.
Whip the egg whites with half the sugar until stiff peaks form.

Whip the egg yolks with half the sugar until thick and fluffy.

Melt the remaining 160g chocolate and stir in the Baileys Irish Cream. Remove from the heat immediately.

Fold into that about 1/3 of the whipped cream.

Fold the egg yolk mixture into the chocolate mixture.

Then alternatively fold in a spoon of egg whites, then a spoon of cream until its smooth and glossy.

Place the chocolate mix in the freezer for around 5 to 10 minutes until it is a little more set and easier to pipe into the cones.

Place half a strawberry in the bottom of the waffle cones and pipe the chocolate mixture over the top. Decorate with strawberries.
