Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 4
Categories: Chocolate / Desserts

2    Sq Unsweetened Chocolate
6  ounces  Semi Sweet Chocolate
1/2  cup  Chopped almonds
4    Egg Whites
1/8  teaspoon  Cream of Tartar
1/8  teaspoon  Salt
1/4  cup  Sugar
2 1/2  cups  Whipping Cream
2  teaspoons  Sugar
1  tablespoon  Vanilla
6  ounces  Chopped Candied Red Cherries

In a microwave oven or over boiling water, melt both kinds of chocolate. Set aside to cool. Toast the almonds in a shallow pan in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for about 10 minutes. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until foamy white. Gradually beat in 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until soft peaks form. Beat two cups of cream in a bowl until stiff. Beat in two teaspoons of sugar, the vanilla and melted chocolate, blend well. Fold the beaten egg whites, the chopped cherries, toasted almonds and the melted semi-sweet chocolate into the whipped cream mixture. Small chunks of chocolate may remain. Place paper baking cups in 24 muffin-pan cups (about 2 inches diameter). Freeze until firm. four hours or overnight. Beat remaining 1/2 cup of cream in a small bowl until stiff. Garnish each tortoni with a rosette of cream and a candied cherry. From The Gazette, 90/12/05
