How To Make chocolate icebox dessert

  • 3
    Beat egg whites to a hard peak, fold into chocolate mixture. (I some times add a 1/4 tsp. cream of tarter and 1 tsp. of sugar to help it stiffen up)
  • 4
    Crush graham crackers. Spread half of the crumbs in a 9X9 pan. Pour in mixture on top of crumbs. Sprinkle remaning crumbs on top.
  • 5
    Place in icebox (refridgerator) over night before serving.
