Mocha Sandwich Meringues
- Cooking and Prep: 3 h
- Serves: 36
For the Meringues
Preheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form and mixture is glossy. Add vanilla.
With a piping bag fitted with a star tip, pipe meringues onto lined baking sheet.
Bake for one hour and then turn off oven. Allow to cool for an additional hour in closed oven.
For the Mocha Cream
While meringues are baking, cream together Mocha Cream ingredients in mixing bowl. Place in refrigerator until chilled.
Remove meringues from oven. Dip bottoms of meringues (flat side) into melted chocolate, and return to lined baking sheet to harden. (You can place them chocolate-dipped side down; the meringues remove easily once the chocolate hardens.)
Place about 3/4 teaspoon of Mocha Cream onto bottom of a meringue and sandwich with an additional meringue. Repeat with remaining meringues.
