Minimal words needed, it’s obvious from the title alone that this is one to try out immediately! It’s mind numbingly easy and the results are both visually impressive and so very, very delicious.
3 ingredients. 1 hour of your time. A moment on your lips. A life time on y- …hmm we’ll forget that last bit.
- Makes 6-8
- 3 egg whites
- 150g caster sugar
- 2 tbsp Nutella
- A chopstick/skewer
Pre heat your oven to 140c and grease a baking tray thoroughly. Separate your eggs and whisk the whites in bowl until stiff peaks form. Whisk in the sugar a tablespoon at a time and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form once again. The mixture should be light and mallowy and shiny.
Now the fun bit! Give your Nutella a good stir first to make it a bit more runny. Don’t be tempted to heat it or you’ll risk cooking the eggs. Drizzle it around the surface of your meringue mix, then using a chopstick or similar swirl it around. Keep a contrast between white meringue and stripes of chocolatey goodness.
Now using a couple of table spoons, dollop your meringue onto the baking tray, leaving about 2 inches between each one.
You can of course make them a more refined shape, but I like the rustic (lazy) approach!
These beauties go into the oven for 50 minutes, until slightly golden brown. They’ll go crisp and crunchy on the outside, but stay gooey and chocolatey on the inside. Heaven!
I defy anyone not to enjoy one of these.
Love those Nutella stripes! They keep the flavour concentrated, guaranteeing lots of super chocolatey bites.
Why not try some with peanut butter as well? Combine with the Nutella ones and you’ve got Reese’s meringues!
