Chocolate Meringues


Chocolate Meringues

Ingredients:

chocolate meringues
150g egg whites (4 or 5 eggs)

200g caster sugar

10g cocoa powder

handful of milk chocolate chips to sprinkle on top

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 120c and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place the egg whites and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. With a hand whisk; mix the mixture until all the sugar has dissolved. Make sure the mixture is warm and not hot as you do not want to cook the eggs!
  3. Transfer the mixture into a stand mixer or use a hand whisk, and whisk on high setting for about 10 minutes until the meringue has thickened.
  4. Sift half the cocoa powder into the meringue and stir very gently. Add the other half, keep stirring gently until all combined.
  5. Spoon 8 big dollops of mixture onto the tray (4 on each), making sure there spread out from each other. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips over each one.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours, then turn off the oven and leave the meringues to go cold inside the oven. Best left over night to completely dry out!
