Dark Chocolate Meringues

These are mourish! Really yummy, they take a bit of time and effort to make but they are so worth it.

Dark Chocolate Meringues
Serves: 15 (2 meringues each)

100g dark chocolate
3 egg whites
240g sugar

Pre-heat the oven to 125 degrees.
Whisk the egg whites until they are real stiff. I don't have an electric whisk so I rub the whisk between my hands so it spins really fast and it takes like 5 minutes.
Slowly add in the sugar and continue to whisk until the sugar is entirely integrated, you shouldnt be able to see or feel any grains in the mix.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave and then pour it into the mixture and stir gently. If you stir too much you will get brown meringues instead of nice marbley ones with layers of yummy chocolate.
Use a serving spoon to lay put 30 dollops onto a baking tray. They grow a little during baking so don't put them too close together.
Bake in the oven for 90 minutes.
Allow to cool, ideally overnight, because they crips up a bit.
