Makes 4. This recipe is easy to halve or double, depending on the number of servings you require. You can also switch up the flavor by using flavored coffee, different liqueurs, and different kinds of chocolate (ie. milk vs. dark). I used Madeira wine for my liqueur and vanilla macadamia nut coffee. Experiment away!

6 ounces dark chocolate (~70% cocoa), chopped

2 eggs

A pinch of salt

1 TBSP. liqueur (optional)

1/2 cup very hot coffee

In a food processor or blender, combine the chocolate, eggs, salt, and liqueur (if using). Blend until well mixed. With the food processor or blender still running, slowly add the coffee and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into four 4-ounce ramekins (or tea cups, if you want to get fancy), and refrigerate until cold and set (about 4 hours). Top with whipped cream and more chopped chocolate. Dive in!
