Another Fabulous Dessert

Dark chocolate isn't just delicious, it's also good for you (assuming you don't pig out on the stuff). I also really love chocolate with nuts, a marvelous flavor combo.
Here's an easy recipe for chocolate pudding that my friend and colleague Mary Ann Barnes devised and shared. It uses walnut oil for that chocolate/nuts thing.
She says it's so tasty that your guests (family, friends, or whoever) won't know that it's actually healthy, too.

Recipe: Guiltless Dark Chocolate Pudding
Serves 8
6 eggs, separated
¾ cup natural sugar, divided
1 24-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup walnut oil
2 tablespoons brandy
Berries for garnish
Beat egg yolks with ¼ cup sugar until light.   Whip egg whites with remaining ½ cup sugar until forms soft peaks. 
Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in a medium bowl, stopping to stir frequently, about 1 ½ minutes.   Be careful not to burn.  Add walnut oil and stir until smooth.   Stir in brandy and egg yolk mixture.  Add chocolate mixture to egg whites and beat until smooth.
Divide into individual dishes and refrigerate until served.  Garnish with fresh berries.
