Servings: 6

Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 325F. Place six 1/2 cup
ramekins or custard cups in baking pan. Stir 2/3 cup sugar and 3
tablespoons water in heavy small saucepan over low heat until sugar
dissolves. Wash down sugar crystals from sides of pan with brush dipped in
cold water. Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to boil. Boil
without stirring until mixture turns deep golden brown, swirling pan
occasionally, about 9 minutes. Immediately divide caramel among ramekins.
Carefully tilt ramekins to coat bottoms (not sides) with caramel.

Bring cream, milk and 1/4 cup sugar to boil in heavy medium saucepan,
whisking until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and stir
until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Whisk in instant coffee, yolks
and egg.

Divide custard mixture evenly among caramel-lined ramekins. Add enough hot
water to baking pan to come halfway up sides of ramekins. Bake until
custards are set around edges and centers move only slightly when baking
pan is shaken, about 30 minutes.

Remove custards from water and cool completely. Refrigerate until very
cold, about 4 hours. (Custards can be prepared 1 day ahead.)


Dissolve instant coffee in 1/2 teaspoon water in small bowl. Combine
chocolate and cream in heavy small saucepan. Stir over low heat until
chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in coffee
mixture. Cool until just warm to touch.

Divide ganache among custards. Spread ganache with back of spoon to cover
top of custards completely. Refrigerate until ganache is set, at least 30
minutes. (Can be prepared 3 days ahead; cover.)

Run small sharp knife around edge of custards to loosen. Invert custards
onto plates and serve.
