    KWB's Note:

    Just saw this on five's Cooking the Books and wanted to hang onto it. It comes from Fantastico! recipe book by Gino D'Acampo. I love the idea of a quick chocolate fix that looks elegant and doesn't require cooking! Cooking time = cooling time, 2 hours for 'cake' to set, then another hour for the topping to set. (Note: contains raw egg whites)
