Crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside, these mini meringues are highly addictive, deceptively easy and cost almost nothing to make. Careful you don't scoff all of them in one go :)
* Ensure all equipment is dry and oil-free. Makes 20-30 pieces*
Whisk with an eletric mixer on low speed for 1 minute, then medium for 2-3 mins:
3 large egg whites
Pinch of salt
Add 175g sugar very gradually while continuing to whisk (this will take about 5 minutes) until glossy.
Lightly swirl in 2 tbsp cocoa powder and 40g grated dark chocolate (optional).
Drop tablespoonfuls (or teaspoonfuls if you want tiny ones) onto a lined baking sheet.
Bake at 140 C for 40 minutes and let cool in the oven with the door ajar. Devour! :)
