For the coffee layer:

  • ½ teaspoon gelatin powder
  • 2 ounces hot espresso

For the milk chocolate layer:

  • ounces milk chocolate
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

For the dark chocolate layer:

  • ounces dark chocolate 70 percent cocoa solids
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder

For garnish:

  • 2 tablespoons chocolate shavings dark, milk, or white


  • For the coffee layer: In a bowl, combine gelatin with espresso and whisk until the gelatin dissolves.
  • Divide the coffee mixture between two serving glasses and refrigerate while you prepare the other layers.
  • For the milk chocolate layer: Break the milk chocolate into small pieces, then melt in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water (do not let the water touch the bowl), stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.
  • In another bowl, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form.
  • Whisk egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water with a handheld electric mixer for about 3 minutes, until the eggs have at least doubled in volume. Remove the bowl from the heat and keep whisking, adding the melted chocolate. Let cool, then carefully fold in the whipped cream.
  • Divide the mixture between the two glasses and refrigerate while you prepare the next layer.
  • For the dark chocolate layer: Repeat the same process as the milk chocolate layer, but add cocoa powder into the egg yolk mixture, then add in the melted dark chocolate and continue.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to set. Garnish with chocolate shavings before serving.
