The egg whites in this recipe are not cooked, but we don’t recommend using pasteurized egg whites, because they tend to separate after they’re folded into the ganache.

I made this for my birthday dinner and was not disappointed. It was light but rich...go figure! I used Woodford Reserve bourbon and made the recipe exactly as written. Served in brandy glasses with piped whipped cream and raspberries in the glass. I wish I had taken a picture because it was lovely.
Got rave reviews! Don't skip out on the whip cream-it needs a little sweetness to balance out the bitter chocolate. But those that love 'not sweet' deserts, go for it!!!
