Recipe

Chocolate Almond Zabaglione

  • Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons almond or nut-flavored liqueur (recommended: Amaretto di Saronna)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup crushed amaretti cookies
  • Bittersweet chocolate shavings, garnish

Directions

  • In the top of a double boiler or in a metal bowl, combine the yolks, sugar, and liqueur until smooth. Set over a pot of barely simmering water and whisk by hand or beat with an electric mixer until pale yellow and foamy and a ribbon forms when the beaters are lifted, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and beat in the cocoa until smooth.
  • Divide the berries between footed dessert coupe dishes or large tall martini glasses. Top the fruit with the zabaglione and cookies, and garnish with chocolate shavings. Serve immediately.
