DIRECTIONS

  • Eggs:
  • Beat the egg whites until frothy, then very slowly add in the sugar, a little at a time while continuing to beat.
  • Keep beating until all the sugar is absorbed.
  • Have ready a bowl of very hot water and two tablespoons.
  • On stove top have a deep frypan of simmering water. (Not boiling).
  • Dip the two spoons into the bowl of water then into the meringue mixture and shape into large eggs between the two spoons.
  • Carefully slide the eggs into the simmering water.
  • Poach 1 1/2 to 2minutes, then carefully turn over and poach for another 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  • Remove the snow eggs from the water with a slotted spoon and drain on a clean tea towel or paper towels.
  • When they have cooled, place on a plate and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Sauce:
  • Melt the chocolate in a pan over simmering water or carefully in microwave.
  • Stir in cream to get the consistency you like.
  • To Serve:
  • Place the snow eggs into individual serving dishes, top with lots of chocolate sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired. Also nice with a scoop of ice cream under the snow eggs.
  • NOTE:
  • Do not let the water boil when poaching the eggs as they will break up. Also make bigger eggs than you think they need be as they tend to shrink a little on poaching.
