Stage 1 - 5 min.
Stage 2 - 5 min.
Pour 250 ml
and 150 ml
into a pan over medium heat and bring to the boil.
When boiling, remove from the heat and tip in the chocolate all at once.
Stage 3 - 5 min.
Allow to melt thoroughly while stirring.
Stage 4 - 3 min.
Stage 5 - 3 min.
Pour the hot chocolate milk onto the egg and sugar mixture, while still stirring as before.
Stage 6 - 10 min.
Once the cream is well mixed, pour through a fine
, preferably placed over a high-sided container.
Preheat the oven to 170°C (340°F).
Boil a full kettle or a large pan of water.
Stage 7 - 35 min.
If froth has formed on the surface of the cream while standing, skim this off and discard.
Divide the cream
between the ramekins, then stand them in a large deep oven tray or dish, or in the
of your oven. Fill the tray with boiling water to come about halfway up the ramekins.
Cook for about 35 minutes, until the cream is just set but still trembling a little in the centre (it is important not to overcook this cream otherwise it will become stiff and start to dry out).
Stage 8 - 2 hours
Leave to cool then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
If you would like to make a little surprise cream, pour ¼ cm or ½ inch of real custard (
) over the chocolate cream just before serving.
