You need a 9 1/2" flan pan with a removable bottom to make this
spectacular looking dessert. PASTRY: Combine flour, icing sugar and 1
melted square chocolate. Cut in 1/2 cup softened butter (with pastry
blender or in food processor) till mixture resembles coarse crumbs, form
into ball with hands. Press into bottom and sides of flan ring pan with
removable bottom that has been greased. Chill 1 hour. Bake at 425F for 10
minutes; cool. MOUSSE FILLING: Bring 1/2 cup whipping cream to a boil,
Add 5 squares chocolate and 2 tbsp butter, stir until melted. Blend in 2
eggs yolks well, remove from heat. Beat egg whites till frothy, gradually
add 1/4 cup sugar, beating till stiff peaks form. Gently fold into
chocolate mixture; pour into pastry crust, chill 10 minutes. GARNISH:
Shortly before serving, sprinkle 3 squares (coarsely grated- use a
vegetable peeler to make curls) over mousse. Lay 3 strips of wax paper
across flan. Sift icing sugar over flan; remove wax paper. NB: Don't make
or serve this on a hot day; it will melt. from Baker's Chocolate Source:
