Chocolate Meringues


For 1 people

  • 6 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoon(s) unsweetened chocolate cocoa
  • 1/2 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line non-stick baking sheets with parchment paper or use the Silpat sheets to prevent the cookies from sticking. In a small bowl, combine the 1/4 cup cocoa and sugar together; set aside. In a large bowl using your electric mixer, beat egg whites until foamy/frothy. Check out How To Make A Perfect Meringue. While beating to the frothy stage, add salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract. After reaching the frothy stage, add the cocoa/sugar mixture (1 tablespoons at a time) while continuing beating until the egg whites are stiff and glossy. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto non-stick baking sheets (1-inch apart). In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 teaspoon cocoa and cinnamon. Using a sieve or a sifter, sprinkle mixture over the non-baked cookies. Bake 90 minutes; turn off the oven, open the door slightly (secure with a wooden spoon), and allow cookies to cool in the oven. Remove from oven and store in a tightly covered (airtight) container.
