  3. In a bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until peaks are stiff (about 5 minutes).
  4. In separate bowl, blend cream cheese, yolks, baking powder and davincis sugar free syrup. Adding half of the yolk batter at a time to the whites and using a tall spoon (I use an iced tea spoon), make a lazy sine wave through the batter once. Turn the bowl 90 degrees and repeat. Add second half of the yolk mix and repeat sine wave two more times.

These are not gluten free. Lindt dark chocolate contains malt (made from barley). The only chocolate that lindt makes that is gluten free is white chocolate, Celiacs beware!
