- 2/3 cup whole milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
- 2 teaspoons espresso powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 shot Irish whiskey
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
Bring milk to a boil in a small pan over moderate heat. In a blender or food processor using the low setting, combine egg, 2 tablespoons of sugar, espresso powder, salt, semisweet chips and whiskey. With the machine off, add boiling milk in a slow stream—the hot milk will cook the egg and melt the chocolate. Process or blend 1 minute, until smooth. Spoon into teacups or champagne glasses, and chill.
When ready to serve, whip cream until soft peaks form, about 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle in remaining tablespoon of sugar and combine.
Top chocolate-filled cups with whipped cream, place cups on saucers and serve with teaspoons.
