This is another recipe that I use a lot as base for other desserts. It is also great alone!!!
2 cups whipping cream, very cold
10 oz bittersweet chocolate
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk, whip the cream until firm, but still soft (do not over beat it).
In a bowl, melt the chocolate on top of a double boiler.
When melted, add to the whipped cream and mix well.
