Melt the chocolate, butter, and 2 tablespoons of water in a double boiler, or in a microwave oven, until you can stir the mixture smooth. Whisk in the cocoa, liquid egg substitute, vanilla, and salt. Set aside in a warm spot.
Using a standing mixer and the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on high until they are foamy. Add the cream of tartar and, with the motor running, slowly add the sugar, a few teaspoons at a time. Continue to beat until soft peaks form, curling over softly when you lift the beater. (Alternatively, use a handheld electric mixer.)
Fold the chocolate mixture into the whites just until there are no more visible white streaks.
Spoon the mixture into the ramekins and bake for 5 to 6 minutes, until the tops are slightly puffed, the edges are set, and the center jiggles when you gently shake a ramekin.
Use oven mitts to carefully transfer the ramekins to serving plates and serve immediately.

4 oz servings aren't nearly enough, makes 5 good looking servings. You can buy a sugar free whipped dessert at the store that is faster to make and less calories. - 6/30/14

Hi Ethel, sorry you weren't so pleased with the results. FYI, if this recipe didn't yield 10 servings it means the meringue was not whipped properly. Making sure you use older eggs helps to ensure greater volume when making meringue. Thanks for your post!
