Mix the egg yolks with the muscovado sugar without letting the mixture blanch.
Bring the cream and milk to the boil and, off the heat, combine them with the egg yolk and sugar (again without blanching).
Return to a low heat while mixing with a spatula until the temperature reaches 82/84°C.
Create an emulsion by slowly combining the hot crème anglaise with the melted ITAKUJA 55% chocolate to obtain a smooth, shiny, elastic texture.
Mix using a hand blender.
The temperature of the mixture must be 38/41°C.
Beat the double cream until it has thickened.
Add the whipped cream to the chocolate custard, folding it in gently with a spatula.
Combine this with the blackberry jelly.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and as long as overnight.
