Makes around: 24
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 25g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100g sugar
  • 3 large egg whites
  • ⅛ tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 150˚C/130˚C fan/gas mark 2 and line two baking trays with tin foil.
  2. In a small bowl, sift together the cocoa, salt and half of the sugar.
  3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites together with the cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Beat in the remaining sugar, half a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is glossy and stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the vanilla.
  4. Take two tablespoons of the egg whites and fold into the cocoa mixture. Fold the cocoa into the egg whites a little at a time, leaving the mixture swirled together rather than uniform.
  5. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls on the mixture onto the prepared baking trays, spacing them about 2cm apart.
  6.  Bake for 25 minutes, then cool the meringues on a wire rack.
