I have not tried this recipe. I got it from 1st Traveler's Choice Internet Cookbook. The Honorable Ben Cardin United States Congressman, Maryland Specialty Recipe. Here is a favorite recipe of Ben and Myrna Cardin.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces bars German sweet chocolate
  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 14 tablespoon sugar
  • 12 pint whipping cream
  • boiling water


  1. Break up the chocolate bars. Place in large bowl. Add boiling water to cover chocolate and place dish towel on top of bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Whip egg whites until stiff but not dry. Whip cream.
  2. Pour off water. Chocolate should be melted. Add yolks of 6 eggs, 1/4 Tablespoon sugar and mix well. Fold in whipping cream which has been "whipped" in mixer. Then fold in egg whites which have been beaten until they're stiff but not dry.
  3. Pour mousse into bowl. Refrigerate at least 8 hours. Decorate with more whipped cream.
  4. For change: Layer the mousse with open lady fingers, with lady fingers on the bottom and ending with mousse on top or you can pour mousse into bowl without ladyfingers.
