Print this Recipe
Serves: 4
300ml / 1/2 pint whipping cream
1 tbsp powdered gelatine
175g / 6 oz plain chocolate, plus more for the curls
handful of ice cubes
300ml / 1/2 pint fromage frais
50g / 2 oz sugar
1 tbsp instant coffee powder, plus more for sprinkling

Pour half the whipping cream into a pan, sprinkle over the powdered gelatine and leave to soften for 5 minutes. Then heat gently until the cream just begins to simmer and the gelatine has melted, stirring constantly.

Break the 175g / 6 oz chocolate into pieces, place in a food processor with the cream mixture and whiz until the chocolate has melted. Add the ice cubes, fromage frais, sugar and instant coffee powder. Whiz until smooth. Pour into cups and chill until set.

Whip the remaining cream and pare some curls from a small chunk of plain chocolate with a vegetable peeler. Swirl the cream on the 'cups', dust with more coffee powder and decorate with the curls.
