20--- Chocolate Russian Cream

Russian Cream may be Eighty Twenty's most famous recipe.  I'm kind of bummed that it's a 20 and not an 80.


Let's make it chocolate flavored.

Chocolate Russian Cream
Serves 8

1 cup sugar
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 cup water
2 cups whipping cream
3 cups sour cream
4 oz dark chocolate, finely chopped
10 chocolate wafer cookies (I like the Famous brand), crushed
Whipped cream (if desired)

In a medium saucepan, blend sugar and gelatin, then stir in water.  Let stand for 5 minutes, then heat to a low boil, stirring constantly.

Remove pan from heat, then whisk in whipping cream and chocolate.  Add sour cream to a large spouted mixing bowl, then whisk in chocolate mixture until smooth.

Pour mixture into 8 oz ramekins or serving glasses (3/4 full).  Place in refrigerator for 3 hours or up to overnight until solid.

Just prior to serving, sprinkle each Russian Cream with chocolate cookie crumbs then top with whipped cream, if desired.
