Separate the eggs into two bowls – one with yolks and the other with whites.

In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place 8 egg yolks, orange extract, vanilla extract, and half the sugar; beat at high speed with the paddle attachment until eggs and sugar are creamed together, creating a pale-yellow smooth paste. Once this smooth paste is achieved, blend in chocolate on medium speed; set aside

In a separate bowl, add 8 egg whites, salt and 2 tablespoons sugar; whip until it forms medium-stiff peaks

In a separate bowl, combine heavy cream with the rest of the sugar until it forms semi-stiff peaks. Fold into the chocolate/egg yolk mixture. Fold in egg white mixture
