Mmmmm very good. Thanks for a nice after work pick me up. I too found it somewhat difficult to make only 2 servings. I also chose to use fresh brewed coffee instead of instant.

This was different, rich and delicious - even though I had a bit of a struggle reducing the quantities to make just two cups. After some trial and error, I arrived at the following. 14 grams chocolate (I used Lindt dark cooking chocolate) 80ml(4 tbs)water 3-4 teaspoons sugar 5 teaspoons instant coffee 1 pinch salt 1 1/3 cups milk 3 tablespoons whipped cream

Sunday papers & this lovely coffee. A great combination. I did scale the recipe back to serve two. Thanks for posting :)
