Directions

1Heat oven to 225 degrees F. Cover 2 large baking sheets with foil; spray foil with nonstick spray.

2Beat egg whites in a large bowl with an electric mixer on High speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar; continue beating until meringue is stiff and shiny. Spoon onto baking sheets, 6 to 8 cookies per sheet (a scan 1/4 cup meringue per cookie); flatten slightly.

3Bake 1 hour or until dry and crispy. Cool 10 minutes; peel meringues off foil and cool completely. Store in airtight containers if making ahead.

4Melt butter with corn syrup in a heavy 2-quart saucepan over Medium-Low heat; stir occasionally. Add chocolate, sugar and cream. Stir, then whisk, until chocolate melts and sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly. If sauce is too thick, thin with milk or cream.

5For serving, let ice cream soften about 10 minutes. Place 1 meringue on a small plate; top with 1 scoop ice cream (1/4 cup); flatten, then drizzle with 2 tablespoons chocolate sauce. Place a second meringue over sauce and press down gently; top with a second scoop of ice cream, drizzle with sauce and sprinkle with red candies. Seve immediately
