1 oz unsweetened chocolate
¼ C cold water
½ tsp vanilla
2 pkg unflavored gelatin
4 separated eggs

Topping: Mix ½ cup sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a large saucepan. Slowly blend in milk, then yolks and Oreo fillings. Heat to a boil, stirring often. Remove generous 1 cup to a small bowl. Add chocolate to bowl and stir until melted and well blended. Cool in fridge.

To mix in saucepan, add vanilla, coloring, and crushed candies. Mix gelatin with water and stir into mix. Blend all, then cool pot in a bowl of ice water.
