3 tablespoons sugar
4 eggs, separated
1/4 cup espresso

Melt the chocolate in a bowl, over simmering water.
In another bowl, beat 2 tablespoons of the sugar with the egg yolks, until the mixture is pale yellow. Mix in the melted chocolate, espresso and brandy. Whisk the cream until it is stiff, then fold it into the chocolate mixture in 3 batches.
Whip the egg whites with the salt until stiff, then folded into the chocolate mixture. Food into dessert glasses and refrigerate overnight. Topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, if desired.
