Chocolate Meringues. Oh Boy.

October 17, 2011

Gotta love a rainy Sunday evening. Last night we made Chewy Chocolate Meringues.

Oh Boy.

I’ll give it to Bakerella, she warned they’d be addicting. I had no idea.

I found the original recipe right here.

I found the original recipe right here.

7 large egg whites
2 cups  sugar
5 tbsp natural cocoa powder
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a clean, dry heatproof bowl, whisk together egg whites and sugar. Set over, but not touching, simmering water in a saucepan.
  • Whisk constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved and remove from heat. (I tested to make sure I didn’t feel any sugar granules.)
  • Beat the eggs on high using your mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat until stiff and glossy. (USE A STAND MIXER! I tried a hand mixer first and it took ages, I ended up transferring the whites to my stand mixer.)
  • Sift cocoa over the meringue. Sprinkle chopped chocolate (and cocoa nibs if you’re using) on top.
  • Then, fold together gently with a spatula until combined.
  • Use a scoop to drop even amounts of batter onto prepared baking sheets about two inches apart.
  • Bake for about 8-9 minutes. Rotate the pans and bake for another 8-9 minutes until the cookies are fluffy and full of cracks.
  • Transfer the cookies, leaving them on the parchment paper, to wire racks to cool. (or you can just eat them right then like I did 🙂 Oh, but beware of the hot chocolate!)

Hope your Monday’s much sweeter!
