Serves: 4-6 Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 7 ounces good quality chocolate (over 50% cocoa) plus a bit extra for grating
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons boiling water (100ml)
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

1

Set out 4 small glasses, espresso cups or six shot glasses to hold the chocolate once prepared.

2

Break the chocolate up into a medium bowl, then melt in the microwave in 30-second spurts or melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water.

3

Add the hot water tablespoon by tablespoon, stirring until you have a smooth paste. The chocolate will go stiff and grainy when you first start pouring the hot water in, but don’t panic, just keep stirring and adding a little at a time until the mixture becomes smooth again. It will be the consistency of pudding when you are ready to add the cream.

4

Whisk in the cream and vanilla.

5

Pour into glasses and let set in the fridge for several hours.

6

Just before serving, top each dessert with a dollop of whipped cream and a bit of grated chocolate.

      There are a lot of good chocolate brands out there so it becomes a matter of taste and price. I can usually find Theo on sale at Bartells.
