Meringue Sticks

Ingredients

Meringue sticks
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup (50g) dark chocolate melts

Method

Meringue sticks
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 150°C or 130°C fan. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • 2
    Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add sugar a tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition, until sugar dissolves.
  • 3
    Spoon meringue into a piping bag fitted with a plain tube. Pipe 10cm logs onto prepared trays.
  • 4
    Bake for 40 minutes, until crisp and dry. Turn off oven and cool meringues in oven with door slightly ajar.
  • 5
    Melt chocolate and drizzle over meringue sticks before serving.

Notes

For a makeshift piping bag, place melted chocolate in a small snap-lock bag and snip off a corner. Push out air left in the bag, reseal and use to pipe chocolate over meringues.
