Chocolate and Almond Meringues

Ingredients

Makes around 40 meringues

  • 15g chopped  whole almonds
  • 2 medium egg whites, at room temperature
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder

 For the filling

  • 20-30g dark chocolate (minimum 60 per cent cocoa solids)

Method

  1. Preheat  the oven to 110°C/fan 90°C. Line a flat baking sheet  with baking parchment.
  2. Pulse the chopped almonds in a blender until finely chopped, taking care not  to overwhizz otherwise the nuts will end up oily.
  3. Whisk the egg whites  in a clean grease-free bowl, just until  the mixture stands in soft  peaks. Add  the sugar,a tablespoon at a time, and whisk  in until dissolved.
  4. Sift the cocoa  powder over the top then add most  of the chopped almonds, leaving about a teaspoon to sprinkle over at the end.
  5. Fold everything together then spoon into a piping bag fitted with a lcm nozzle.
  6. Pipe rounds on to the parchment,sprinkle with  the remaining nuts then  bake in the oven for around 1 hour. They’re ready  when the meringues come away easily from the parchment. Leave in the oven to cool.
