Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Melt the chocolate. A double boiler or the microwave work well for this.
  2. Whisk together yolks, 2 tbs sugar, and 3/4 cup cream in a medium sauce pan, then cook over medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring regularly, until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  3. Whisk melted chocolate and vanilla extract into the cream mixture. Transfer to a bowl and chill until cool.
  4. Beat remaining cream and sugar with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into cooled chocolate mixture 1/3 at a time.
  5. Spoon into serving dishes, cover, and chill at least 30 minutes, but up to 3 days.
Recipe Notes

Pour in a shot of espresso along with the melted chocolate to add some rich, coffee flavor.
