Total time
Serves: 12
  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 150g (3/4 cup) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 60 g bittersweet chocolate chips
  1. Heat oven to 110C/230F.
  2. Place a square of baking/parchment paper on a large baking sheet.
  3. Add the egg whites and lemon juice to the bowl of a standing mixer, or large mixing bowl if you are using a hand mixer. Whisk until the egg whites double in size and form soft peaks.
  4. Continue whisking; adding in the sugar a tablespoon at a time, allowing it to incorporate completely before adding more.
  5. Once you have added in all of the sugar, whisk until the whites are glossy.
  6. Sift cocoa over the meringue and sprinkle in the chocolate chips on top.
  7. Then, using a spatula, gently fold the mix into a large zip-top plastic bag or plastic piping bag.
  8. Cut off the tip or one corner and pipe the egg whites on to the baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 2 hrs. When the meringues are finished, they will have a crisp exterior and lift easily off the paper.
  10. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  11. Serve plain or topped with whipped cream.
