  • cup dark chocolate 60 g - I used 58% cocoa
  • cup milk 85 ml
  • cup whipping cream 85 ml
  • 2 egg yolks 40 g
  • 3 tbsp sugar 40 g


  • Chop the chocolate and put it in a bowl.
  • Bring the cream and the milk to a boil in a pot.
    When it’s boiling, pour some in the egg yolk/sugar, whisk and transfer back into the pot. Cook like a creme anglaise – 83°C – on a low to medium heat and stir until it thicken and the foam is gone.
  • Pour half of the custard on the chocolate, mix well, and add the rest of the custard.
  • Pour the chocolate custard in two ramekins and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
