Talking Chocolate Meringue Kisses: From the 5/16 Daily Dish

You can mess around with the flavor by changing the extract (though I'd add a little vanilla to any other flavors). My grandmother made amazing choco-mint ones of these (which are delightfully pink!) by adding some unsweetened cocoa powder with the sugar and using mint extract. Yum!

Chocolate Meringue Kisses
From the 5/16 Daily Dish: Don't be afraid to use a pastry-bag — once you get the hang of it, it's really easy. These cookies will keep for a week, tightly covered. Wait to sandwich the cookies together until just before serving.

2 egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar substitute
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, lumps removed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Light whipped topping (1 tablespoon per sandwich)

Tip: Make sure your bowl is completely dry and clean of grease or the whites will not whip up enough.

Preheat oven to 250F. Place egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean bowl or electric mixer fitted with whisk attachment. Whisk at highest spped until whites form soft peaks that hold their shape when you lift the whisk. Add the sugar substitute, 1 tablespoon at a time; whisk until whites turn glossy and form stiff peaks that hold their shape. Do not underbeat. Whisk in cocoa and vanilla until blended.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Fit a large star nozzle into a pastry bag. Fill pastry bag with meringue. Pipe 20 meringue kisses onto prepared sheets. Bake 30 minutes, until crisp and dry. Turn oven off, let cookies cool in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from baking sheet. Sandwich pairs of cooled cookies together with whipped topping.

Makes 10 cookies.

2 comments. Keep in mind i was doing these by hand and i assume most of you have an electric blender. [Note: The problems this member had are, undoubtedly, due to not using an electric mixer. You need one for egg whites--it's very difficult to whip them up properly without it]
1. This was disgustingly weet... I could really taste the splenda as opposed to sugar. quite gross actually.

2. adding the vanilla killed the meringue. it became flat and no amount of whpping will bring it back up. i tried the recipe twice to se if i had done something wrong the first time but nope, it screwed up again the second time to. perhaps adding the vanilla in the beginning would change that.

i hope others have more luck than i do.

These are excellent! Don't let the post before mine stop you from trying them. You cannot properly whip egg whites without an electric mixer- just not gonna work!
