  2. Beat 4 egg yolks- then add 3/4 cup confectioners sugar. Beat until thick, light-yellow and ribbon like. ( Sort of resembles taffy) Set aside.
  3. Beat 1 1/2 cups heavy cream until stiff with 1 teaspoons vanilla. Set aside.
  4. Beat 4 egg whites with a little sugar until stiff peaks form.
  5. Make sure the chocolate has cooled to near room-temperature and beat the first 3 mixtures together- then fold in the egg whites.

  7. Top with whipped cream and toasted almonds just before serving.
