 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           Sugar
      2/3  cup           Cocoa
    2      teaspoons     Instant expresso or coffee
      1/3  cup           Water
    4                    Egg yolks
   10                    Maraschino cherries
    1      cup           Heavy cream
    2      tablespoons   Rum
      2/3  cup           Chocolate -- coarse chop
 
 Soak cherries in rum. Sift sugar; cocoa, and instant coffee together and place in
a heavy sauce pan. Add the water and mix well. Bring to a boil and cook until
everything is well mixed. While syrup is cooking, whip the egg yolks until light
and fluffy. Reduce the speed of the beaters to the lowest level and add the hot
syrup in a continuous fine stream. Continue beating until the mixture is thick
and forms a ribbon pattern when the beater is pulled away. Chill well. Whip the
cream with the 2 tablespoons of rum until stiff. Fold into the chocolate mixture.
Fold in the chopped chocolate. Arrange foil lined paper cups in a muffin pan.
Fill each cup 1/3 of the way full. Place a cherry in each cup then fill the rest
of the way. Freeze at least 4 hrs. Before serving pipe whipping cream on top if
desired. It will keep in the freezer for about a month.
