- 100 g dark chocolate (70%), chunks or chopped
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 237 ml whipping cream
- 1 1/2 cup whole milk
1 tbsp Javy Coffee Concentrate
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch Maldon sea salt
- 12 ameretti cookies
Crush ameretti and add a splash of Javy coffee and melted butter and combine evenly. Add one tablespoon of this mixture to the bottom of your dessert cups and set aside.
Start doing the base by gently whisking cream, milk, yolks, sugar, cocoa and salt until thickened on medium heat. Stir frequently for about 10 to 12 minutes, until you can run a finger across the back of the spoon and it holds.
While the base is still hot, place chocolate and butter in a bowl. Using a fine mesh sieve, strain the base into the bowl of chocolate. This ensures your pudding is smooth and velvety. Stir to combine. Add coffee concentrate and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth.
Pour into your dessert cups and cover and chill until set, about 3 hours. Add your desired finishing touches and enjoy!
