Heavenly Delight

This recipe for Heavenly Delight, to celebrate the upcoming feast of the Ascension, was submitted by Emily, from God's Canvas. Thank you Emily!

Since I was very small, my mom made this recipe, usually for guests, and I got the spoon.. now as a mommy.. I have Snowbabies, ages 13-3 all around me when I make this asking for the spoon… and why not taste a little bit of heaven?

For the Feast of the Ascension, we will celebrate with a taste of Heavenly Delight.

Heavenly Delight

What you’ll need:

Angel Food Cake… Make it yourself and you’ll love how light and fluffy (like clouds) it feels.
1 bag of Semi-sweet Chocolate chips
4 egg yolks
4 egg whites
1/4 c sugar
1 large tub Cool whip
1/2 c chopped walnuts

Cool and tear your angel food cake into pieces in a large bowl.

Melt chocolate chips in saucepan or double boiler (to avoid cooking the yolk) stirring in the yolks carefully until smooth. remove immediately from heat.

In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until fluffy adding in the sugar and cool whip.

Fold in the chocolate and add the nuts.

For the Ascension, reserve half of the Angel Food cake.

In a large dish spread out the remaining angel food cake and Spoon Chocolate mixture on top until completely covered. Chill for a few hours for best texture.

When ready to serve, fill each glass with angel food cake pieces and top with heavenly delight!

Enjoy a taste of heaven and end with a prayer for thanksgiving for the Ascension of our Lord into Heaven.
