Nutella Merangues filled with Strawberry Whipped Cream

Just a quick post today, sorry but I have lots on my mind right now.  Getting Marina packed to head off to university on Friday and just got a call from my sister with bad news.  Mom fell and broke her hip so I'm waiting to hear when surgery will be so I can figure out when to hop a plane and head to Washington State! 

Whip 4 egg whites until frothy and add 1/2 cup powdered sugar, pinch of salt and a pinch of cream of tartar.  Beat until stiff and gently swirl in 1/3 cup Nutella. 
Do not mix in completely. 
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and using a piping bag make 3 inch circles and fill the base and double pipe the outer edge of the circle to form a bowl.
Put into pre heated 300 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 200 and check after one hour.  If the meringues are dry turn off the oven and let cool in the oven for 2 hours.  If the meringues are not quite dry continue baking for another 15-25 minutes.
Slice one pint strawberries and mix with sweetened whipped cream.  Fill the Nutella Meringues with the strawberry whipped cream mixture and garnish with a fresh strawberry.  I like to add a bit of chocolate sauce to the plate as an additional garnish.
Peaches, nectarines, blueberries also work well for the whipped cream filling!
