My guys are big on chocolate and so birthday desserts need to be oh-so chocolaty. I was leaning towards a mousse but decided to go with a bit more bite. This is dense, full-on, chocolate flavour. Omitting the brandy, still doesn't make it a kids treat. The buttermilk and brandy round of the intense flavour of the chocolate. I dare you to eat two servings...
  • 1 cup (soy) heavy cream
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 140 grams 85% cacao dark chocolate
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • brandy, to taste
  • powder sugar

Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Warm cream and buttermilk over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate. Whisk brown sugar, yolks and brandy (I added about two tablespoons). Temper the egg mixture with a bit of the warm chocolate mix and continue stiring while adding. 
Divide among individual baking dishes and place in a large baking pan. Fill pan with hot water, about a third to half way up the dishes. Grate any remaining chocolate in a thin layer over the top. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool and then sprinkle with powder sugar before refrigerating till chilled.. If you can wait that long, as they are pretty darn tasty warm. The grated chocolate and powder sugar add a nice crunch, similar to a creme brulee.
