  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.

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!
