Preparation – 10 minutes

Make a simple chocolate sauce by heating the heavy cream in a small saucepan at low heat. Chop the dark chocolate into small pieces and stir them into the warmed cream. Use a whisk to make a smooth sauce.

Use your coffee maker or a percolator to make 400 ml of espresso – or, if you prefer, make two stiff cups of coffee, preferably dark roast.
