bowl until stiff. Beat in two teaspoons of sugar, the vanilla and melted
chocolate, blend well. Fold the beaten egg whites, the chopped cherries,

mixture. Small chunks of chocolate may remain. Place paper baking cups in

or overnight. Beat remaining 1/2 cup of cream in a small bowl until stiff.
Garnish each tortoni with a rosette of cream and a candied cherry.
