Set syrup aside and let it cool to a warm temperature around 125 degrees. Meanwhile, whip the cream until it is stiff and refrigerate it. ( kitchen aid, use whip start on 8 ... increase to 10) Place egg yolks in mixer bowl and beat them for 1 minute. Slowly ( just a fine line of syrup) start adding warm syrup beating all the while until yolks are thick and cool...approx 5 minutes. (kitchen aid, use paddle, speed 3) Slowly beat in the chocolate until it is blended in the yolk mixture. Slowly beat in the cream until it is thoroughly mixed.

The thing to remember is that the syrup needs to be warm when beating into the egg yolks. Then beat the yolks until they are cooled. * If you are using this at holiday time, it is wonderful served in chocolate boxes, or cups Recipe By : Jo Ellen Harris
