READY IN: 3hrs 20mins




  • Pour the heavy cream, vanilla and coffee beans into a saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Bring the cream to a brief simmer; do not boil or it will overflow within seconds. Remove from heat and strain to remove the beans.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the sugar until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is lemon-colored, about 3 minutes.
  • Temper the yolks by gradually whisking the hot cream into the yolk and sugar mixture (do not add the hot cream too quickly or the eggs will cook.)
  • Stir in the brewed coffee and melted chocolate.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Pour the egg-cream mixture into 6 (8-ounce) ramekins or cappuccino cups, filling 3/4 of the way full with mixture.
  • Fill a large, shallow baking pan with 1/2-inch of warm water.
  • Carefully place the ramekins in the water bath and bake for about 35 minutes, the center should jiggle slightly.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let the ramekins cool in the water for 10 minutes. Then pop them in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
  • garnish with whipped cream and biscotti cookie.
