  2. Arrange a few biscuits in the bottom to form a base and set aside.
  3. To make the filling, beat together the egg yolks, castor sugar and coffee granules until the sugar and coffee dissolve, then stir in the melted milk chocolate and butter.
  4. Lightly fold in the stiffly beaten cream so it does not lose any of its volume.
  5. In a seperate bowl, beat the egg whites into stiff peaks and fold in lightly into the mixture. Pour mixture into the biscuit base and cover completely with cling film.
  6. Chill overnight in the fridge or a couple of hours in the freezer then turn out and decorate with the melted dark chocolate and extra whipped cream.
