Hi everyone, very new to this, and would appreciate some help.
My dad used to ‘create’ a desert when I was a kid, and no one can remember the recipe anymore.
Does it sound familiar to anyone?
It was a standard digestive biscuit and melted butter base, but was then a mixture of bournville (dark chocolate) eggs, cream, and a splash of brandy.
Was never baked and was therefore raw eggs of some description. Not sure whether it was just yolk or both.
I have searched for ‘chocolate tart’ which I assume it would be described as, with eggs and then no bake, but can’t find anything similar

Thanks in advance, sorry if this is a idiotic request

Sounds like a mousse, split the eggs, beat yolk into melted choc, fold whipped whites into base and fold whipped cream in last.

If the texture was more like ganache then just melt the choc in scalded cream by stirring with a whip, add egg yolk , brandy and pour into mold. Try 1 lb choc and 1 pint heavy cream, 4 yolks and brandy as you like.
Pour into baked shell whilst still warm.
