1sheet (12 x 18-inch)H-E-B Parchment Paper,

1/2c.H-E-B Real Egg Whites,

1/8tsp. each:salt and cream of tartar,

1/4c.H-E-B Sugar,

1/3c.0 calorie sweetener,

1/2c.H-E-B Heavy Whipping Cream,

2/3c.semi sweet chocolate chips,

1/2c.0 fat greek yogurt,


1 1/3c.fresh strawberries or raspberries,


1Heat oven to 250°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Draw 4 circles, 4-inches in diameter, on parchment paper; set aside.

2Place egg whites, salt, and cream of tartar in large mixer bowl; beat on high speed 30 seconds until foamy. While continuing to beat on high speed, add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. Add sugar replacement 1 tablespoon at a time until egg whites have high peaks. Do not over beat or mixture will separate.

3Divide whipped egg whites among the 4 circles and spread with back of large spoon. Make a well in center of each so shell bakes evenly. Bake on center oven rack 1 hour or until they become crisp. Turn oven off , leave meringue shells in oven to cool and crisp slowly.

4Chocolate Ganache: Place heavy cream in 2-cup microwave safe bowl, microwave on high power 1 minute. Add chocolate chips, let set without stirring 1 minute. Stir mixture until chocolate sauce forms. Cool until it thickens enough to drizzle; set aside.

5Assemble tortes just before serving: combine yogurt and sweetener in small bowl using wire whip; set aside. Arrange shells on 4 plates; top with 1/3 cup strawberries or raspberries, 2 tablespoons sweetened yogurt and drizzle with 1 tablespoon chocolate ganache. Serve immediately. Save remaining chocolate ganache for another use.
