Mocha Chip Meringues

I really love flavoured menringues, but the mocha taste ones are definitely my favorites. This is the recipe of Martha Stewart, yes, once again I did an other recipe of this awesome cooker, but I just love all her does. These delicious wonders combine the rich taste of coffee and chocolate, makes me remeber also mini pavlovas. As you can appreciate is a cookie shape and it has a meringue taste but it is also something chewy inside, with crunchy edges and mixed chocolate chips makes an explosion of textures.

INGREDIENTS makes 18 meringue cookies
100 g white sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Harsheys)
60 g semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 150┬║ and line the baking sheet with parhcment paper.
Whisk the sugar and the cornstarch and set aside.
In the mixing bowl beat the egg whites and the salt on a medium speed until frothy. Beating constantly add the sugar mixture, one tablespoon at a time. Beat until stiff, glossy and peaks form. Scrape doen the bowl and add the espresso powder and the cocoa, beat until well blennded. Fold in the chocolate chips with an spatula.
Using an ice cream scoop drop bater onto the baking tray, bake for 40 minutes until crisp. Cool completely on sheets, about 20 minutes.

Recipe adapted for Martha Stweart.

You can also make these meringues smaller, leave them longer in the oven make meringue kisses, using other flavours and colors. They are lovely to drink a coffee or decorate a cake.

Enjoy the week
