  • 2 1/2 cups  sugar
  • 9 large egg whites
  • 2 pounds  unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 ounces  semi-sweet chocolate, melted

1. In a medium heatproof bowl set over simmering water, combine sugar and egg whites; stir until hot and sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a mixer bowl and beat to firm peaks, about 8 minutes. While mixer is running, add butter, a few tbsp. at a time, until completely combined.

Bring to room temperature, then beat on low speed until smooth before using.) Makes 10 cups.
