Decadent and classy-looking, but oh so easy! This is one special item that requires little effort, but looks and tastes so special. I like to make this over the Christmas/New Year period if we get guests and even if we don’t.
70ml strong coffee
2 egg yolks (lightly beaten)
silver balls for decoration
1 pkt small pleated paper cups
Melt 200g of the chocolate. Place aproximately 1 tsp melted chocolate into each pleated paper cup. Swirl to coat bottom and sides of the cup well. Chill.
Melt remaining chocolate and stir in coffee. Beat in egg yolks. Gradually beat in butter. Refrigerate mixture overnight.
Carefully peel paper off chocolate cups. Use a rosette nozzle to pipe mixture into chocolate cups (I don’t have one right now, so I just spoon the mixture in and swirl a fork in the top). Refrigerate until set. Decorate with silver balls.
