First, here is the list of the different ingredients you will need to prepare the Chocolate Ingot that serves 4 to 6
- 250 g (1/2 lb) dark chocolate drops
- 60 g (1/2 cup) milk chocolate drops

Now, here are the different steps you will need to follow to make the Chocolate Ingot
Melt 100 g (3 oz) dark chocolate in a double boiler. Coarsely chop the almonds. Separate the yolks and whites of eggs. Whiten the egg yolks with 100 g (1/3 cup) sugar, stir in melted chocolate, cornflour, chopped almonds and egg whites and turn your batter until smooth.
Spread the dough on a cooking sheet covered with parchment paper to get a biscuit about 36 x 26 cm (14 x 10 inch). Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 °C (356°F). Turn the cake upside down, peel off paper and cut the cake into three.
Boil the cream, pour 200 ml (3/4 cup) on dark chocolate and the rest of milk chocolate. Let cool, then add the milk ganache on stiffed egg white and mix gently. Place the 2 ganache in the fridge for about 2 hours.
Spread the black ganache on the two bands of biscuit and spread the milk ganache on the third band. Overlap each one.
