Put gelatin in cold water and let rest until soft. Then dissolve it thoroughly in hot water. Beat the yolks with sugar until light-colored and smooth. In a double boiler melt chocolate with milk and add yolks, gelatin, and vanilla and remove from the heat. Cool to lukewarm. Beat egg whites until firm. Fold into the chocolate mixture and pour it into a soufflê dish. Refrigerate 8 hours. When ready to serve, whip the cream until stiff. Sweeten with sugar flavor with vanilla and put on top of the soufflé. Sprinkle with almonds. The souffle should not sit for more than 8 hours or it will be too stiff.
