2 egg yolks

Add the sugar. Stir well until dissolved.

N.B. I found the Bain Marie too slow! It was easier and quicker to use the heat diffuser. It ended up like a thick chocolate cream, not set as I expected. It was delicious. and very easy
This recipe was given to me in French by my neighbour but the translation seems to work fine.
