WFMW - Mocha Meringues

Two of my children absolutely LOVE meringue cookies and my daughter will choose something coffee flavored everytime. So I combined their love of coffee and meringue to come up with this cookie recipe.

4 Egg whites (preferably room temperature)
1 1/3 cup of Sugar
1/2 tsp Cream of tartar
8 tsp Cocoa, shifted
2 tsp Espresso powder

Beat egg whites in glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add in sugar until stiff peaks form and mixture is well combined and glossy. Stir in cocoa and espresso powder.

Drop spoon sized amounts on baking sheet lined with parchment paper (will make 2 - 3 dozen) and sprinkle the top of each cookies with chocolate sprinkles. Bake at 225 for 45 - 60 minutes. Turn oven off and leave cookies in the oven for an additional hour. Store in an airtight container.

For other dessert recipies try:

Fruit Pudding Cake
Double Chocolate Espresso Fudge Cookies
