  • 240 grams milk
  • 1 piece vanilla
  • 140 grams white sugar
  • 100 grams cocoa paste, chopped finely

  • When all the caramel is dissolved, and the liquid returns to a boil,  add the cocoa paste and emulsify.  
  • Away from heat, add the milk mixed with egg yolks.  
  • Mix well, strain, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Set in the chiller overnight and the following day portion into ramekins and bake quickly at 160 celsius in a water bath, covered.  
  • When shiny and elastic, the custards are ready steady freddy.
