Bring milk and cream to a simmer in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add chocolate, whisk until smooth. In another bowl, whisk yolks and sugar until blended, then strain.

Gradually whisk hot chocolate mixture into yolk and sugar. Cool for about 10 minutes. Skim any foam.

Divide custard into 3/4 cup portions and then spoon into ceramic or glass cups.
