Serves 4

200 g dark chocolate

1 tablespoon of milk

100 g icing sugar

80 g unsalted butter

300 ml cream

2 egg yolks

Cocoa powder

750 ml fresh coffee

Whipped cream

Break the chocolate into a pan with the milk and melt over a gentle heat. Remove from the heat and beat in the butter with a wooden spoon. Then beat in the egg yolks, cream and finally the icing sugar.

Place the mixture into a bowl and chill for at least two hours.

When the mixture has hardened form it into truffles and dust them with the cocoa powder.

Place two or three truffles in each cup. Pour on the hot coffee, top with whipped cream and serve with a spoon.
