 Ingredients List

  • 3 Eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 tb Water
  • 2 tb Cognac or kahlua
  • 4 oz Quality bitter- or
  • Semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 c Whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 tb Superfine sugar (omit if

In heavy saucepan over very low heat or a double-boiler over simmering
water, melt chocolate. Reserve and allow to cool slightly.

In heavy saucepan over very low heat or a double-boiler over simmering
water, whisk egg yolks and water until mixture begins to thicken.
Whisk in cognac; continue to whisk until mixture has thickened to the
consistency of Hollandaise sauce. Remove from heat and whish in
melted chocolate. Set aside.

In small bowl of an electric mixer, beat cream just until it holds
soft peaks. If chocolate mixture has stiffened, heat gently over very
low heat, whisking constantly, until slightly softened. Transfer
mixture to a large bowl; whisk in 1/2 cup of the whipped cream. Fold
in remaining whipped cream with a large whisk or spatula, them cut
through with a spatula or curved fingers to eliminate large air
bubbles. Set aside.

Beat egg whites until they hold soft peaks. Beat in sugar (if used)
just until mixture holds stiff peaks. Stir a small amount of the egg
whites until chocolate mixture to lighten it; then fold in remaining
egg whites. Spoon into a serving bowl or 8 small molds. Refrigerate
at least 4 hours or until firm.

Garnish just before serving with chocolate curls, if desired.

This is best eaten the same day as prepared. Makes 8 servings.
