3. Whisk the cream with the brandy or vanilla until it is thick enough to leave a ribbon trail when the whisk is lifted. Be careful not to over whip the cream.

4. Mix a spoonfull of the cream into the tepid chocolate then quickly fold in the chocolate into the rest of the cream using a metal spoon.

5. Pour the mixture over the biscuit base and smooth the top.
