elephants!" ~-PATTY SMITH, WIFE OF THE AUTHOR The above remark
clearly states the background of this dessert. My wife loves elephants
and so, while demonstrating this dish at a chocolate festival at
Marshall Field's, Chicago, I decided to name the dish after her
favorite pet. Yes, she has always wanted a pet elephant. This is
expensive, very rich, terribly fattening, and it is not good for you.
It is also disgustingly delicious. It has all the right attributes for
the serious chocolate lover. Separate the eggs. Beat the yolks with
the vanilla and butter. When thoroughly blended add the almond
liqueur. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and then allow to cool
a bit. Beat the egg whites and sugar until stiff. Blend the chocolate
with the butter/yolk mixture, adding the chocolate to the yolks a
little at a time. Finally, gently fold the chocolate mixture into the
egg whites. This may be put in small glasses and chilled. Serve with
whipped cream on top if you want to go the whole route. This will
keep covered in the refrigerator for a couple of days. It is best the
first day. From <The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American>. Downloaded from
