heavy whipping cream
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.
Cut the chocolate finely and set aside.
