- Effort: medium
- 200 g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids broken into pieces
- 75 ml strong espresso coffee, freshly brewed

- 20 langue de chat biscuits, or good quality butter biscuits
1. Place the dark chocolate and the espresso coffee in a heatproof bowl suspended over a pan of simmering water and heat together until the chocolate is melted.
2. In a separate bowl, whip the cream to the soft ribbon stage, taking care not to over whip it.
3. Gently fold the whipped cream into the melted chocolate mixture.
4. Line a rectangular dish, about 1cm high, with cling film. Turn the chocolate mixture into the dish, forming it into a rectangular shape.

7. Repeat the process, making 20 slices in all.
8. Top each langue de chat biscuit with a chocolate truffle slice and serve.
