Eat a spoonful at a time or eat the whole thing at once. It is airy and packed full of satisfying chocolate flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1-½ cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 3  Egg Yolks

Repeat for additional 20 second heat increments until most of chocolate is melted.Continue stirring until completely melted. Set aside.
2. Put whipping cream into a bowl and use an electric mixer to whip it into stiff peaks, set aside
3. Whisk together egg yolks, sugar and water in the top of a double boiler. Place over it simmering
water. Whisk continuously until temperature reaches 160 F or yolks thicken and coat the back of a
spoon. Remove from top portion of the double boiler and place it on top of a bowl of ice to stop the cooking. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Pass egg mixture into a bowl through strainer to remove any yucky cooked egg bits. In a large bowl, mix together the egg and chocolate until completely incorporated. Fold in whipped cream.
