Remove from heat; add cocoa, salt, and chocolates, stirring with a whisk until chocolate melts.

Stir in Kahlúa and egg yolks.

Stir in flour; cool to room temperature.

Set aside.


Beat egg whites and cream of tartar with a mixer at high speed until foamy.

Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.

Gently fold one-fourth of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; repeat procedure with remaining egg white mixture, one-fourth at a time.

Spoon into prepared pan.

Bake at 300 for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out almost clean.

Cool completely on a wire rack.

Cover with heavy-duty foil; seal and freeze.
