Step by Step Method
Preheat oven to 325F. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a tea kettle or saucepan.
In medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine milk, sugar, cocoa, and coffee crystals. Cook and stir just until sugar, cocoa and coffee are dissolved. DO NOT BOIL. Let cool slightly.
In a medium bowl gradually whisk milk mixture into eggs. Add vanilla.
Place six 6-ounce custard cups or ramekins in a rectangular baking dish. Divide egg mixture evenly among the 6 cups.
Place baking dish on oven rack and carefully pour boiling water around the custard cups into the baking dish, about 1-inch deep.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Remove cups from baking dish and cool on wire rack for at least 15 minutes.
