  • 3 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Squares
  • 0 1/3 cup Cocoa Powder (Unsweetened)

  • 6 large Egg Yolk

  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 0 1/3 cup, chopped Hazelnuts or Filberts Nuts


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine 3 cups of the cream, chocolate, cocoa powder and coffee granules; cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate melts and mixture just begins to simmer. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Whisk until smooth.
