Chocolate, vanilla, cream... and grappa desserts in fancy grappa glasses

I have these really cute grappa glasses, they are small straight tubes with one side of the glass almost 'melted' into it, like a thumb had been pressing it... and in fact it is quite nice to hold! Possibly these are not so practical for dessert (fortunately I have some tiny long spoons) but I wanted to use them, just for look.  So here is the recipes

For the Vanilla layer:
3 free range eggs
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp flour
1.5 l full cream milk
Vanilla essence
1 tsp grappa

For the Chocolate layer:
Just add some 72% dark chocolate to the vanilla mixture (about 50 g)
Add more grappa if you like

For the Cream:
Just whip some cream

Mix the eggs with the sugar and flour and add the milk slowly. Simmer until the custard thickens then add the vanilla essence and grappa. Pour half in a jug and stir. Add the chocolate to the rest and stir, then pour into the glasses (bowls, cups, trifle bowl...). Let it set then add the vanilla layer. Refrigerate then top it with whipped cream.

I know that this is number 3 this month, but I feel like sweet things, so here we go, another entry for Sweet New Zealand, the monthly blogging event for Kiwi bloggers. Our June host is Sue, click here to enter.
