1/4 cup 59mlWater
8   Eggs - separated
1 1/2 teaspoons 7.5mlVanilla
2/3 cup 131g / 4.6ozSugar

Recipe Instructions

Heat chocolate and water over very low heat -- keep stirring until smooth.

Stir in BEATEN egg yolks. Add vanilla.

Beat egg whites in large mixing bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar to egg whites until stiff.

Add a little egg white mixture to chocolate, to lighten.

Then fold chocolate into remaining whites.

Pour 4 cups into greased 9 inch pie pan which has been sprinkled with sugar.

Refrigerate the rest of the mousse.

Bake at 350F for 25 minutes, until set. This makes a chocolate meringue.

Chill crust for 1 hour. Center will fall to make a chocolate meringue shell. Spoon chilled mousse into shell. Refrigerate overnight.

This is our family's all-time favorite Pesach dessert, for the Seder or ANY TIME. It's actually too wonderful to save for one week a year.
