Method

  1. Break the chocolate into small chunks and tip into a bowl with the coffee and alcohol. Bring 250ml of the cream to the boil, then pour over the chocolate mixture and stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Divide the mix between 6 coffee cups and leave to set overnight in the fridge.
  2. To serve, whip the remaining cream with the sugar until just set. Spoon the cream onto the chocolate pots and serve dusted with cocoa powder so each cup looks like a cappuccino.

This was a great success. Easy to make (and useful that you can make it the day before) and really impressive served in coffee cups with Amaretti biscuits. One to use time and again for dinner parties.

I was very disappointed as this did not set and was so runny I threw it away - any comments as to why as I followed the recipe to the last letter!

Great little dessert, easy to make and serving in espresso cups gives it that wow factor. It is very rich so you do not need to serve a lot per person. I served extra cream in a bowl on the table as all the dark chocolate and coffee can be a too bitter for some.

200gms of 86% chocolate was far to much, it tasted very bitter, not sure i would make again

My chocolate mixture did not set but that may be because I was heavy handed with the Amaretto - my guests loved it.

I actually found that the chocolate mixture wasn't sweet enough. I think it might be because I used chocolate with high cocoa content - will try and add some sugar if I make it again. It set beautifully though.

Silly question but the coffee meant to be hot or cold?

Mine didn't set either & I followed the recipe to the letter. Not sure why & I might give them another go doing something slighty different, but I havent figured out what yet!

accidently added 100 GRAMS of strong coffee! Disgustingly bitter so i melted together 200g of milk chocolate and a whole tub of elmlea double cream, added the bitter mixture to this bit by bit untill it was pleasently coffee flavoured, not like eating a jar of kenco! Learn from my mistake!

Forgive this novice but what is meant by 100g of strong coffee? I thought that liquids were measured in fluid ozs or parts of a litre.

no problem with portion size at all, served in a selection of china cups and saucers looked fab! didn't let the chocolate melt properly so was a bit grainy, perhaps not sweet enough??

Made this for Christmas Day. Large portions, but my family are greedy so it wasn't a problem. Found them very boozy though. My nephews were flying round the room on a high of chocolate, coffee and booze!

If I make it again I will probably half the portions and serve with some fruit to balance out the intense richness of this pudding. I couldn't finish my portion.

Halfed recipe but it still made 8 espresso cups. I also left out the sugar, it just didn't need the extra sweetness as I used amaretto.

Unfortunately I could not get it to set - however I achieved this by putting in a bain marie and all turned out well. Very rich though!
