1 ½ cups of whipping cream

Mix together the eggs, milk, white and brown sugar and salt. Once blended, add to a saucepan, and cook on medium heat while constantly stirring. Break up the chocolate, and stir it in until it melts. Cook until the mixture has reached 160 degrees. You can use a candy thermometer to gauge the mixture's temperature. You will know your mixture is ready if it layers a metal spoon.
