Hi, Everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve shared any cookie recipes with you, and these Cocoa Meringue Kisses were so good I just had to tell you all about them! If you like meringue, you will love these! I used to be so intimidated by the whole meringue process, but now that I’ve made it several times, it’s really just a couple of steps that aren’t too difficult! And if you follow them carefully, you end up with delicious goodness like these Cocoa Meringue Kisses that are so wonderfully light and airy and just melt in your mouth!
COCOA MERINGUE KISSES
(Recipe from Martha Stewart)
*Makes about 30*
YOU WILL NEED
4 large egg whites
1 cup granulated sugar
Pinch of Cream of Tartar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1. Begin by preparing your meringue. Fill a medium sized pot with water and bring it to a simmer, then set a heatproof bowl over it. In the bowl, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar, and whisk together until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth and warm when you touch it.
2. Next, pour the mixture into your electric mixer bowl, and mix on high speed using the whisk attachment, until stiff, glossy peaks form, for about 10 minutes. Then, add in the vanilla and sift in the cocoa powder, fold them in very carefully so the meringue doesn’t deflate.
3. Preheat your oven to 175 deg F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Fill a pastry bag with a large star tip with the meringue and pipe your kisses onto your baking sheets. Bake for up to two hours, take the kisses out whenever they are hard on the outside and don’t stick to the parchment paper anymore.
Happy Baking, Everyone!
