Ingredients

  • ¾ cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 (12.3 oz) package reduced fat, extra-firm tofu
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large egg whites
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • Grated chocolate (optional)
  • Fat-free whipped topping, thawed (optional)

Directions

  1. Place chocolate and tofu in a food processor or blender, and process
    2 minutes or until smooth.
  2. Place salt and egg whites in a medium bowl, and beat with a mixer at
    high speed until stiff peaks form.

    without stirring, until candy thermometer registers 238o.
