  3. Stir together the white chocolate chips and cream in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and let sit for 1 minute.
  4. Whisk until smooth. If needed, microwave again in 15 second increments, whisking in between until the white chocolate has melted completely. Cover loosely and place in the fridge to cool, at least 30 - 35 minutes. (Mixture does not need to be completely chilled, just cool to the touch.)
  5. Mix the egg whites and castor sugar or icing sugar in a small pot and heat lightly over a double boiler on the stove, whisking throughout, until the sugar has totally dissolved. Then beat on high with a handheld beater for 10 to 15 minutes until the meringue is glossy and stiff.
