Grate 1 oz. chocolate. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in medium bowl with mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating constantly until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in grated chocolate.
Spoon egg white mixture into 3 bowls. Tint mixture in one bowl with 3 drops blue food coloring, then tint mixture in second bowl with 2 drops red food coloring and 1 drop blue food coloring. Tint remaining egg white mixture with 3 drops each yellow and blue food colorings.
Drop egg white mixtures into 8 mounds per color, 1 inch apart, on 3 parchment-covered baking sheets, using about 2 Tbsp. of each colored egg white mixture for each mound. Gently spread each mound into 3x2-inch oval shape to resemble egg.
Bake 50 min. Turn oven off. Let meringues stand in oven (with door closed) 10 min. Remove from oven; cool completely.
Melt remaining chocolate as directed on package; cool slightly. Spoon chocolate into small resealable plastic bag; press bag to remove excess air. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to pipe chocolate over meringues. Let stand until firm.
For best results, prepare meringues on a cool, dry day. High humidity can result in chewy, sticky meringues.
How to Store
Store cooled meringues in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Use a box grater to grate 1 oz. of room temperature BAKER'S Chocolate onto a sheet of waxed paper. Use immediately or refrigerate until ready to use as a garnish for your favorite dessert.
