Here is something quick and easy. Little meringues, pink and white styled with some homemade cocoa sauce on top to light up your evenings. Or mornings. I just had one for breakfast…
Meringue Bites With Cocoa Sauce On Top.
3 egg yoklks
1/2 t.s. lemon juice
150 gr. sugar
100 gr. powder sugar
two drops of food colour – optional
For the Cocoa Sauce.
85 gr. sugar
40 gr. cocoa powder
90 gr. water
Make first the cocoa sauce. In a small pot blend the cocoa with sugar, add the water, stir well and boil in medium heat for a minute. Let it aside to cool down.
Pre heat the oven at 100 *C and lay baking paper on a oven pan. In the mixer, bit the egg yolks with the lemon in high speed, until ti gets all white and stable. Add the sugar in 10 parts and beat well. Stop the mixer, spead the powdered sugar and with a spatula stir gently.
If you want your meringues coloured, now add a few dropos of the food colour and mix gently again, not for too long because you do not want the meringues to loose their air.
Place the meringues on the oven pan with a spoon or by using a pastry bag. Bake for 1 hour, until well dried. Place them on a plate and spread the cocoa sauce on top.
