- 2 cups heavy cream
- 8 ounce bittersweet chocolate
- 2 tbsp espresso syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 6 egg yolks
- ½ cup brown sugar
Bring the cream to a boil in a sauce pan. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
Whisk together egg yolk and sugar. Add ½ cup of cream mixture. Gradually add the rest of the cream mixture. Pour into ramekins, espresso or coffee cups. Bake in a water bath for 30 minutes at 325°F. Center can still have a slight jiggle when done.
Cool and refrigerate. Served with fresh whip cream. Makes 8-10 cappuccino-size cups.
I like to bring mine to room temperature to serve.
