 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         fine quality bittersweet chocolate
    1      cup           heavy whipping cream
    2      tablespoons   dark rum or other liqueur -- optional
    4                    egg whites
      1/2  cup           sugar
                         garnish:
                         chocolate shavings
 
 Cut the chocolate finely and set aside.
 
 In a saucepan, bring the cream to a boil and remove from heat. Add the
 chocolate and let stand a few minutes; whisk smooth and pour into a
 large bowl. Whisk in the liqueur and cool to room temperature.
 
 In a mixing bowl, combine egg whites and sugar and place over a pan of
 simmering water, whisking constantly, until egg whites are hot and
 sugar is dissolved. Whip on mixer until cooled and risen in volume -
 do not overbeat until egg whites are dry.
 
 Fold meringue into chocolate mixture, and place in bowls or glasses.
 Garnish with chocolate shavings just before serving.
 
 Yield: 4 to 6 servings
