1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
3 large eggs, separated
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

~Cover and bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes (or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean).
~In a small bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over hot filling, sealing meringue to sides of dish.
