  2. Step 2

    Wash and hull the strawberries. Cut into thin slices and put in a bowl with the finely chopped mint, balsamic vinegar and sugar. Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour; for a really intense flavour, leave overnight.

    Break the chocolate into the hazelnut drink and melt in the microwave or bain-marie. When it has completely melted, stir in the extra-virgin olive oil.

    Mix the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl to make a smooth paste. Stir in the melted chocolate and cocoa powder.

    Beat the eggs whites to stiff peaks and fold into the chocolate mixture.

    Serve in glass bowls with a spoonful of strawberries on top. Top off with a sprinkling of chopped nuts.
