- 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten

- 2 ounces premium white baking chocolate, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup Frangelico (hazelnut-flavored liqueur)

- Dash of salt
- 6 large egg whites
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed

Cook, without stirring, until candy thermometer registers 238°. Gradually pour hot sugar syrup in a thin stream into egg white mixture, beating at high speed until stiff peaks form (5 to 7 minutes).
