Melt the chocolate in a microwave or heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Take off the heat.
Add the hot water (you can use the water from the bain-marie) to the chocolate and vanilla. The water must be added slowly and gradually to avoid the chocolate splitting. Add the whipping cream – the texture should be like that of crème anglaise. Pour straight into espresso cups and leave to set in a cool part of the kitchen for at least 45 minutes before serving.

As you might expect from Green & Black's, this recipe is indulgent and should be enjoyed as a treat.
