From your description, you might be talking about "divinity," which is made from egg whites and, often, topped with a piece of nut.

Divinity doesn't contain condensed milk, but it is very white and fluffy.

Sounds like a buttercream..


4 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 cups evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all four ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until it reaches 236 degrees Farenheit on a candy thermometer (soft ball stage).

Remove buttercream mixture from heat and place the bottom of the pan in a sink of cold water to cool.

Stir well until the candy firms up. Roll into balls or other shapes and place on a waxed paper covered tray and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Melt together 2 cups of chocolate chips or pieces and 1 Tablespoon of chocolate over a double boiler stirring constantly until smooth. You could also use the microwave if you stir every 30 seconds and DO NOT OVERHEAT.
