Grate ordinary cake of chocolate very fine, sweeten as desired, boil in water and milk equally mixed, at least 5 minutes, stirring constantly. The Mexicans say that long continued slow boiling develops flavors imperceptible in chocolate which is quickly made. Separate the yolks and whites of perfectly fresh eggs, allowing 4 for every qt. Beat the yolks to a smooth cream, and the whites to a stiff froth, draw the boiler containing the chocolate to the side of the fire, where it cannot boil, and gradually pour in the yolks, stirring constantly so the yolks will be smoothly mixed through it. Just before serving stir in the beaten whites, so as to make a foaming drink. Serve with whipped cream.
