2. Separate the egg whites from yolks and place them in two separate bowls.

3. Whisk egg whites into a fluffy white mass.

4. Beat the yolks with erythritol for 5 minutes. The time is important.

5. Mix chocolate mass with whipped yolks. Add egg whites gradually.

6. Grease the form and bottom with the butter and cover with the parchment paper. Lay out the dough.
