Recipe for baked chocolate meringues by Santos Kitchens


– 3 egg whites

– 150 g sugar

– 50 g chocolate 70% cocoa 

– 2 tsp cocoa powder


Preheat oven to 140ºC (270ºF, gas mark 1)

While the oven is warming up, melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave for 15 seconds and stir.

Repeat as many times as necessary until the chocolate has melted. Do this very carefully and little by little so it doesn’t burn.

In a bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks then add the sugar and continuea whisking until you get a firm meringue.

Add the cocoa powder to the melted chocolate while stirring gently, in such a way that the cocoa powder doesn’t completely dissolve in it, but instead is swirled into it.

Using a small teaspoon, add the meringue to the chocolate mixture, a bit at a time, while trying to form irregular lines or streaks. Don’t stir too much in order to create a marbled effect.

Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.

Take small portions of the chocolate-streaked meringue and place them on the greaseproof paper, leaving a little space between each one.

Bake for 40 minutes.

Allow to cool before serving.

Note: If you don’t have any chocolate (70% cocoa solids), you can use any other type of dark chocolate. You can also replace the cocoa powder with another type of hot chocolate drink mix (such as Cola Cao or Nesquik).
