dessert's a mark of gracious hospitality.

salt, and water; boil for 1 minute, and cool to lukewarm. Stir in melted
chocolate, vanilla, and softened gelatine. Beat egg yolks until very thick
and lemon-colored. (At least 5 minutes). Blend into chocolate mixture. Beat
egg whites until stiff and fold into chocolate mixture.

the filling. Fill the mold with alternate layers of chocolate filling and
ladyfingers, ending with ladyfingers. Chill for at least 24 hours. Unmold
on chilled plate. Serve at once. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
