    In a double boiler (or in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave) melt chocolate and butter.

    Stir together half of the sugar and all the egg yolks; add to melted chocolate.

    Using electric mixer, beat the egg whites; slowly add remaining half of sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold this mixture into the chocolate.
