The Chewiest Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Makes 16

 

INGREDIENTS

170g NESTLÉ Aero for Baking, broken into pieces

2 large egg whites

1 ml cream of tartar

½ tsp vanilla essence

½ tsp salt

¼ cup brown sugar

 

Serving suggestion:

NESTLÉ Hot Chocolate

 

METHOD
 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180° and line a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. Place the NESTLÉ Aero for Baking chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted.

  3. In a large bowl, add the egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla essence and salt. Using a hand mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add in the sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.

  4. Gently fold the melted chocolate into the eggs until combined. *Chef’s Tip: Avoid overmixing to prevent the egg whites from losing air.

  5. Use a tablespoon to spoon the batter onto a baking sheet, allowing space between each for the cookies to spread during baking. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until crackly on the top but chewy on the inside. Allow to cool before serving alongside a mug of NESTLÉ Hot Chocolate and ENJOY!
