 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   10      oz            semisweet chocolate, coarsley chopped or u
      3/4  C             strong brewed coffee
    1 1/4  C             sugar
    1 1/2  sticks        unsalted butter at room temperature
    5                    eggs
    1      oz            dark rum or coffee liqueur (optional)
    2      pints         heavy (whipping) cream
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 5 1/2 x 9  loaf pan. In double
 boiler, melt together chocolate, coffee & sugar over low heat. Set aside to
 cool for 10 minutes. Turn
 mixture into a medium bowl, and with an electric mixer, add butter until
 incorporated.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add rum now, if using it.
 Pour mixture into the loaf pan; bake 1 hour until the mixture is puffed &
 cracked. Cool to room temp on a rack, then refrigerate overnight.
 To serve:In a bowl, whip the cream until it holds stiff peaks. Use an ice
 cream scoop & shape the chocolate into balls. Fit a pastry bag with a star
 tip & pipe each boule with a coating of whipped cream.
 **************LAZY WAY TO SERVE************************************
 Skip the whipping cream. Buy the aerosol stuff or the tub. Have everyone
 scoop out what they want & squirt the whipped stuff on. Tastes every bit as
 good if you aren't worried about presentation.
