4 large egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup cream
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
Chocolate shavings (if desired)
Beat egg yolks in small bowl with electric mixer on high speed about 3 minutes or until thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in sugar. Heat 1 cup whipping cream in 2 quart saucepan over medium heat just until hot. Gradually stir at least half of the hot cream into egg yolk mixture, then stir back into hot cream in saucepan. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Stir in chocolate chips until melted cover and refrigerate about 2 hours, stirring occasionally, just until chilled. Beat 1 1/2 cups heavy cream in chilled medium bowl on high speed until stiff. Fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream. Pipe or spoon mixture into dessert dishes or stemmed glasses. Refrigerate until serving. Store covered in refrigerator. Add chocolate shavings if desired.
