2  ounces  lowfat cream cheese, in chunks
2  teaspoons  gelatin powder, unsweetened

1  tablespoon  sugar
2  large  egg whites, at room temperature

Whisk 1/4 cup milk, egg, 1/3 cup corn syrup and cocoa till smooth. In large pot, heat remaining milk till bubbles appear at edges. Whisk some into cocoa mixture, then whisk back into milk in pot. Cook over medium, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon for 3-5 m in.. till slightly thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate and cream cheese till smooth. Set aside. Soften gelatin in 1/4 cup water and heat till dissolved. Whisk into chocolate mixture along with vanilla and mint. Set aside. Combine 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tsp. corn syrup in small pot. Bring to a boil and cook at medium-high for about 5 min. (2 30 deg. - fine thread stage). Beat egg whites to soft peaks, add 1 Tbsp. sugar and beat till stiff but not dry. When syrup reaches 239 deg (soft ball stage) pour over whites, gradually while beating. Beat about 5 min, till stiff, satiny and cool. Whisk one cup of meringue into chocolate mixture, fold in the rest. Spoon into crust. Chill. By KKBG35A RUTH BURKHAR
