Cook Time6 hrs
Total Time6 hrs 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream or half and half plus 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate or 4 oz. semisweet and 2 oz. bittersweet for a darker chocolate flavor

Instructions

  • Beat eggs with an electric mixer on high about 3 minutes.  Gradually beat in sugar.
  • A little at a time, pour about 1/2 cup of the hot cream into the beaten eggs, stirring constantly. Then add the warm egg/cream mixture to the saucepan. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens (do not boil).
  • Remove from heat and add chocolate.  Stir until chocolate is melted.  Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • When chocolate mixture has chilled, beat 1 1/2 cups whipping cream in a chilled bowl with an electric mixer.  Beat on high until stiff.  Fold chocolate mixture into whipping cream, just until combined.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 4 hours.
