  1. Combine the double cream, chocolate, ginger, cinnamon, mixed spice, cloves, and rum in a pot. Heat up the mixture and cook for 2 minutes, stir it until the chocolate is melted. Add the butter and stir until melted. Set aside the pot to cool.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks into the spicy chocolate mixture, add one at a time. Add 200 ml double cream and whip until the mixture thickens.
