4. In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream, half at a time, into chocolate mixture.
5. In small bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until foamy. Add 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar and continue beating until whites stand in stiff peaks. With rubber spatula, fold beaten whites, half at a time, into chocolate mixture until blended. Pour mixture over crust in springform pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
