Recipe

Mint Cacao Nib Meringues

This is a great way to get some cacao antioxidants and a fun sweet treat with out too many calories. If you need a little more sweetness you can add a few chocolate chips.

Times

  • Ready Time : 0 min

Servings

2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs

Directions

Preheat oven to 250 F. Line cookies sheets with parchment paper.

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar a little at a time until all sugar is incorporated and melted into the meringue. The meringue should be shiny and form stiff peaks.

Fold in mint or peppermint extract and cacao nibs.

Drop by tablespoon fulls onto prepared cookie sheets, placing them about 1 inch apart.  (or you can make them mini using  a teaspoon)

Bake about 1 hour until stiff and dry. Turn off oven, but leave meringues in the oven until cool to further dry out, another 2 hours.

Store in an airtight container.

Note: If you cannot find superfine granulated sugar, measure 1 cup plus 1 tsp of granulated table sugar in a small food processor and process about 2 minutes. Do not use confectioners’ sugar. It contains cornstarch. The food coloring makes them look store-bought, but may be omitted. Don’t be alarmed if the batter looks too bright. The color fades as the cookies bake.
