6 spoonfuls of 00 type flour,
6 milk glasses,
3 spoonfuls of sweet chocolate,

Preparation (medium):
Heat the milk in a casserole. Meanwhile prepare the chocolate cream in another container. Beat 3 yolks with 3 spoonfuls of sugar. While stirring, add 3 spoonfuls of flour, the sweet chocolate and the bitter chocolate and amalgamate well. Add gradually 3 glasses of hot milk and put over low heat. Cook the paste stirring constantly preventing it from boiling. When the cream is ready, remove from the heat and allow it to cool down. In the meantime prepare another cream following the above mentioned procedure, but without adding chocolate. Halve lengthwise the Savoy biscuits and put them in the bowl.
