  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 level tbsp golden caster sugar
  • ľ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cold strong coffee (1 tbsp coffee granules to 1 tbsp hot water)
  • 2 tbsp Tia Maria (or Kahlua or Amarula)
  • A little grated plain chocolate
  • Dessert biscuits, to serve

Chill or freeze the unwhisked egg whites for up to 2 months. Use to make meringues.
