Ingredients

Directions

FOR MERINGUES:
PREHEAT
oven to 300º F. Lightly grease baking sheets.

BEAT egg whites, salt and cream of tartar in large mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar; beat until sugar is dissolved. Gently fold in morsels. Spread meringue into ten 3-inch nests with deep wells about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.

BAKE for 35 to 45 minutes or until meringues are dry and crisp. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

FOR CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
HEAT
evaporated milk to boiling in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Stir in morsels. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is slightly thickened and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in sugar, vanilla extract and salt.

DRIZZLE meringues with Chocolate Sauce and fill with fruit (whole blackberries, blueberries or raspberries, sliced kiwi, peaches or strawberries); serve immediately.
