  • 6 (4 oz) bars bittersweet chocolate
  • 2/3 cup extra-strong black coffee
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature, separated
  • 1 cup sugar, plus 1/2 cup
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • whipped cream, for topping
  • shaved chocolate, for garnish
  • berries, for garnish


Break chocolate into smaller pieces and melt on top of a double boiler. When close to being melted add coffee and stir together.


In a separate bowl, beat 3 egg yolks and 1 cup of sugar, mixing well. Add mixture to melted chocolate and cook over heat. Stir well until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Cool.


Using a handheld electric mixer, beat 4 egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold into chocolate mixture.


Beat heavy cream with the remaining 1/2 cup sugar until soft peaks begin to form. Fold into chocolate mixture.


Serve in a beautiful crystal dish or glass. Garnish with dollops of fresh whipped cream, berries and shaved chocolate.
