This Cappuccino Dessert is typically served in a small glass or cup, similar to the traditional cappuccino coffee drink, and is often topped with whipped cream or cocoa powder for an extra touch of decadence.
To make Cappuccino Dessert, a base of creamy custard is prepared using egg yolks, sugar, and milk. This custard is then flavored with strong espresso coffee and melted dark chocolate, giving it a bold and intense flavor. The mixture is then chilled and set in the refrigerator until it becomes firm and creamy.

- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powde
In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the cream, milk, sugar, instant espresso powder, and vanilla extract over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks until they are pale yellow and slightly thickened.
Gradually pour the hot cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from scrambling.
Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
Remove from heat and pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any lumps or egg bits.
Divide the mixture evenly among four serving cups and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until set.
Before serving, dust the tops of the desserts with cocoa powder and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
