1/2 c whole milk

3 large egg yolks
1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup dark chocolate shavings (about an ounce but I have used the pre made wings)

coat four custard cups with butter and set aside

combine cream, milk and espresso in a small saucepan and scald

whisk together the egg yolks,egg, sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl.

while whisking add a little of the hot mixture to the egg mixture , once combined well slowly add the hot mixture to the egg mix while whisking.

Pour into the cups and place in the water bath in the oven. Make sure the water comes up to 3/4 of the outside of the cup.
