Yield: 8 - 6 Servings

Ingredients:
  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 4 ¼ ounces granulated sugar, divided
  • 8 ¾ ounces Valhrona white chocolate, chopped

Method:
In a medium bowl, cream egg yolks and 1 ¾ ounces sugar. In a double boiler over simmering water melt white chocolate. Set aside to cool slightly. In a clean large mixing bowl whip egg whites and 2 ½ ounces of sugar until stiff.
