Russian Cream may be Eighty Twenty's most famous recipe. I'm kind of bummed that it's a 20 and not an 80.
Let's make it chocolate flavored.
Chocolate Russian Cream
1 cup sugar
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 cup water
2 cups whipping cream
3 cups sour cream
4 oz dark chocolate, finely chopped
10 chocolate wafer cookies (I like the Famous brand), crushed
Whipped cream (if desired)
In a medium saucepan, blend sugar and gelatin, then stir in water. Let stand for 5 minutes, then heat to a low boil, stirring constantly.
Remove pan from heat, then whisk in whipping cream and chocolate. Add sour cream to a large spouted mixing bowl, then whisk in chocolate mixture until smooth.
Pour mixture into 8 oz ramekins or serving glasses (3/4 full). Place in refrigerator for 3 hours or up to overnight until solid.
Just prior to serving, sprinkle each Russian Cream with chocolate cookie crumbs then top with whipped cream, if desired.
