I did a bit of searching for this recipe through the web and my cookbooks with several little variations across them all. I was actually trying to find a recipe that did not involve egg separation but that does not seem to exist for chocolate, so I randomly choose a recipe from the web that seem to have several good ratings attached to it.

MEG's PRODUCT REVIEW :
The Braun Hand Mixer with whisk attachment
Now I am sure everyone has seen the hand blender and used it to make soup or shakes but that is not the best thing about the hand blender. What is you ask? The WHISK attachment. This is seriously one of my favorite kitchen friends. It is so useful, easy and fast! It can whip eggs into a stiff peak in no time and make whipped cream in less than a minute it seems. If I ever need to whip or whisk anything super quick I just "whip" this out right away and it's done. (Ha. Bad joke) If you don't happen to have a hand blender and you are considering getting one make sure it has the whisk attachment. You won't be sorry!
