Step by Step:

  1. Separate the whites from the yolks well. You can use a separator to help you or do it with the shells.
  2. Place the whites in the bowl and begin to beat them at medium speed. You will notice that bubbles begin to form; It is normal. Keep going until they start to turn white.
  3. Stop beating for a moment – the mixture should start to form soft peaks and slide into the bowl.
  4. Continue beating on high speed. Do this until you notice firm peaks rising from the mixture, and when you flip the bowl, it stays sticky, firm, and doesn’t spill out of the bowl.

Once the whites are about to nougat, add the 2 yolks and beat just to integrate, in addition, as an optional point you can add a teaspoon of flour to make the mixture more stable for the coating.
