   beat until stiff. Whip cream until stiff. Fold cream into cooled chocolate
   mixture, then fold in egg whites.
   
   Invert brownie shell on towel and peel off paper. Line bottom and sides of
   greased 9-inch square baking dish with brownie shell, cutting strips for
   sides and 9-inch square for bottom. Turn filling into cake-lined dish and
   cover with plastic wrap. Chill 3 to 4 hours or until firm.
