DIRECTIONS

  • Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 350°F.

  • Chop the chocolate, then grind in food processor or blender. Set aside.
  • Place the milk in top of a double boiler or heatproof bowl. Sprinkle with gelatin. Let stand 5 minutes to soften.
  • Set the top of the double broiler or heatproof bowl over hot water. Add 1/3 cup of sugar, the chocolate and egg yolks. Stir until dissolved. Add the vanilla extract.
  • Set the top of the double boiler in a bowl of ice and stir until mixture reaches room temperature Remove from the ice and set aside.
  • Whip the cream lightly. Set aside. With electric mixer, beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Add the remaining sugar and beat only enough to blend.
  • Fold a dollop of egg whites into the chocolate mixture, then pour back into the whites and fold in gently.
  • Fold in the whipped cream and pour into the pastry crust. Put in freezer until just set, about 5 minutes. If the center sinks, fill with any remaining mixture. Chill for 3-4 hours. Decorate with whipped cream and chocolate curls. Serve cold.
