Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
  • ¼ cup confectioner's Swerve
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp water

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200F (95C).
  • Add the egg whites, cream of tartar and sweetener to a stand mixer bowl, then whisk until soft peaks form.
  • Spoon a third of the mixture into a separate bowl and set aside.
  • With the remaining two thirds, add the vanilla and whisk until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a separate bowl.
  • Return the one third mixture to the stand mixer. Combine the water and cocoa powder together in a small bowl to form a paste. Add it to the stand mixer and whisk until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold the vanilla mixture into the cocoa mixture with just a few strokes.
  • Spoon the combined mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle. Pipe out onto a baking tray lined with silicone mat or baking parchment. This recipe makes about 24 meringues.
  • Bake for one hour, turn off the heat, and leave the meringues in the oven with the door closed for three hours or until crisp.
  • Store in an airtight container.
