Chocolate Meringues

Treat the whole family while at home together with these easy to prepare, yet indulgent chocolate meringues. Only requiring a few ingredients, you can save the egg yolks for later and use for home made pasta sauces, custard or fresh mayonnaise.


Makes 16

4 egg whites

225g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cornflour

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp chopped hazelnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat the Miele Food Warming Drawer on the food setting and the highest temperature option. If you don’t have a warming drawer, set your oven to 85°C.

  2. Put the egg whites into a large clean bowl and whisk them until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, little by little, whisking continuously. The mixture should be stiff, white, and glossy.

  3. Now whisk in the vanilla extract and cornflour until well combined.

  4. Swirl about a third of the cocoa powder into the mixture using a knife, then spoon small mounds, well spaced out, onto a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Continue to add the cocoa powder so that each layer of mixture has a good amount of cocoa powder visible. At this point you can scatter chopped hazelnuts onto the mini meringues if desired.

  5. Put the baking tray into the food warming drawer or oven and cook for 2 hours.
