    • 2 tablespoons cocoa
    • 1 envelope gelatine
    • 3 cups (750ml) low-fat milk

    1. Combine the cocoa and 2 tablespoons (30ml) water in a small bowl, stirring until the cocoa is moistened. Sprinkle the gelatine over 1 cup (250ml) of cold milk in a separate bowl and stand for 5 minutes or until softened.
    2. Meanwhile, combine the remaining milk, the brown sugar, chocolate and a good grating of nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer and heat just until the chocolate has melted.
    3. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa mixture. Stir in the gelatine, return to the heat, and cook for 3 minutes or just until the gelatine has dissolved.
    4. Divide the mixture among six 3/4-cup custard cups or ramekins. Cool to room temperature and then chill for at least 4 hours. Decorate with shaved chocolate, if you like.
