Chocolate Cups

These chocolate cups may be small but they are packed with intense chocolaty goodness. It is so sweet and rich, you may need to serve with some simple wafers or cookies to balance the dessert.

The chocolate mixture is created by gently heating cream and mixing in chocolate before cooling to serve. Taking the time to continually stir ensures a pleasurable smooth texture.

Made in jars it is perfect to seal and take on a picnic or hike, just back well to keep cold. A decorative top can be created with a small amount of additional cream but the plain version taste exactly the same.

Ingredients

285ml thickened cream (9 1/2 oz whipping cream)

200g (7oz) dark chocolate

2 egg yolks

3 tablespoons brandy, optional

1 tablespoon salted butter

extra cream to garnish

Equipment

1 pot

6 jars, cups, or similar single serve dishes

Recipe Directions

  1. In a solid pot heat the cream until nearly boiling then remove from the heat.

  2. Add the dark chocolate and continue stirring until melted and smooth.

  3. Mix in the egg yolks and brandy stirring until still smooth and well combined. Finally, stir through the butter.

    Tip: The temperature can be a little tricky here. The chocolate cream needs to cool enough that it doesn’t cook the egg yolks, but after being combined still warm enough to melt the butter.

  4. Evenly divide the chocolate mixture among the individual serving dishes. Optional – Drip the garnish cream in the chocolate, then run a toothpick through to create hearts.

  5.  Place the chocolate cups in a cooler to set for at least 30 minutes before serving.
