Two ingredients. Recipes do not have to be complex to be luxurious. This recipe is egg-free—so you do not have to worry about lightly-cooked eggs.

1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups of whipping cream

Put the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the whipping cream in a 3-quart saucepan and heat on low heat, stirring, until the chocolate is just melted and blended with the cream; remove from heat and let it cool to lukewarm. Beat the remaining 1 1/2 cups whipping cream until stiff. Stir the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until it is barely mixed. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
