4 1/2 oz  unsweetened baking chocolate
2 tbsp  butter
7 each  egg whites
4 each  raw egg yolks
1 pinch  salt
2 tbsp  SPLENDA┬« No Calorie Sweetener, granulated
1 tbsp  instant coffee granules
1 tsp  vanilla extract
1 tbsp  red wine
1 each  cooking spray
  1. Break chocolate into pieces and microwave with butter for approximately 1 minute (making sure it doesn't burn).
  2. Set in a bowl of hot water, so that it doesn't harden.
  3. Beat the egg whites with 1 tablespoon of sugar substitute, just until stiff peaks form. Beating too long will make it difficult to blend with the chocolate. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks with 1 tablespoon of the sugar substitute until thick and lemon-colored. Once it starts to thicken, turn mixer on the lowest setting and slowly pour in the melted chocolate (keep 1 tablespoon for later use as chocolate shavings).
  5. Beat on low until thick and incorporated, occasionally scraping down the sides. If a bit of egg white is still showing, finish by mixing with a spatula.
  6. Continue mixing by hand, adding the coffee, vanilla, and wine.
  7. Pour into small glass dessert bowls and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  8. To prepare in advance, pour into small muffin tins lined with paper cupcake holders. Freeze these overnight. Carefully remove paper right before serving and garnish. These melt quickly.
