Chewy Chocolate Meringues

 Attempted again on 5th october 2012
Recipe from bakerella 
1 cup (250 ml/about 7) egg whites
2 cups (500 g) sugar
5 tbsp (30 g) cocoa powder
125 g dark chocolate, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Line baking trays with baking paper.
In a clean, dry heatproof bowl, whisk together egg whites and sugar.
Set over, but not touching, simmering water in a saucepan.
Whisk constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved and remove from heat. (I tested to make sure I didn’t feel any sugar granules.)
Beat the eggs on high using your mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
Beat until stiff and glossy.
Sift cocoa over the meringue.
Sprinkle chopped chocolate on top.
Then, fold together gently with a spatula until combined.
Use a tablespoon to drop even amounts of batter onto prepared baking tray about two inches apart.
Bake for about 8-9 minutes.
Rotate the pans and bake for another 8-9 minutes until the cookies are fluffy and full of cracks.
Transfer the cookies, leaving them on the baking paper, to wire racks to cool.
Makes about 60 
Will SHE make it again?
