Ingredients
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the egg whites and sugar and beat with a whisk until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the flour, salt, melted butter, cream and vanilla until combined.

  • Preheat a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the batter into the pan and, with a small offset spatula, spread the batter into an even 4- to 5-inch pancake. Cook on the first side until golden brown at the edges, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown on the reverse side, about 1 minute more. Remove from the pan and immediately hang the pancake over the handle of a wooden spoon to form the taco. Set aside to set, about 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.

  • Dip the tacos in the melted chocolate and return to the wooden spoon. If making ahead of time, refrigerate until needed.

  • Fill the tacos with the softened ice cream and garnish with the chopped pecans.
