Chocolate Swirl Meringues (gf)
These crispy, and chewy little delights are the perfect treat when you have leftover holiday ingredients! Dress these up with a drizzle of salted caramel or dusted with cocoa powder for a dramatic look.
1 dark chocolate grön bar (1.5oz bar of your choice-**see below for dosing options and bar suggestions)
2 egg whites, large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 tsp white vinegar
How it’s done:
Preheat the oven to 300°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
When your egg whites are room temperature, place them in a stand mixer bowl or large bowl for hand beaters. Whisk egg whites on high until peaks form. Slowly, add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, pausing for a minute between to let the sugar combine well. When finished, scrape the sides of your bowl and continue to whisk for 5 minutes or until stiff and glossy. Add vinegar to mixture and continue to whisk for another minute or until vinegar is combined.
Melt chocolate in a microwave safe container, stopping every 10 seconds or so to stir. Once melted set aside.
Dollop your meringue into 5 equal-ish circular mounds, leaving plenty of space between each one. Gently, flatten the tops of the meringue. Drizzle about 1-2 teaspoons of chocolate on each mound and use a butter knife to swirl the chocolate into the meringue. Slightly press each meringue into a 10cm circle.
Reduce oven temperature to 250° and place tray in the oven. Bake for about 30 minutes or until they are crisp on the outside. Turn oven off and continue to let cool in the oven for another 30 minutes. Remove from oven and finish cooling meringues on a rack. Store in an airtight container once cool.
Grön Bar Suggestions: We are big fans of the Dark Chocolate 1:1 Bar (with 50mg of THC and 50mg of CBD) as the effects of THC and CBD combined are heavenly. However, the Dark Chocolate THC bar (with 50mg of THC) is equally delicious and has a lower price point (due to the absence of CBD). For those folks looking for the medicinal effects of CBD without THC, we love our PURE CBD Dark Chocolate Bar (with 50mg of CBD and no THC). See our bars and where to find them here.
