  • One can do this in a microsafe bowl, microwaving high power for several minutes, checking to make sure mixture is melting and stirring till smooth.
  • Either way, one must not over cook chocolate or it will sieze and harden.
  • When chocolate is stirred smooth, set aside to cool a bit
  • Beat in yolks one at a time to incorporate well
  • In another large bowel, whip cream to soft peaks and then gently fold into cooled chocolate.
  • Stir in the drained cherries.
  • With clean beaters beat whites till foamy and then increase speed and beat till almost stiff.
  • Gradually add sugar and beat till stiff but not dry.
  • Fold egg whites into chocolate mixture gently until well blended.
  • Place mixture into a l glass punch bowl if you have it, cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight.
  • Then garnish as desired.
  • Yield: 20 or more 1/2 cup servings

    Hi! Midgelet,
    Is this correct? I will need 2 1/2 pkgs or 18 ozs of semi-sweet chocolate? Thanks in advance for your reply. Will try this for my next dinner party. Thanks a lot.
