Chocolate Meringues / Macaroons / Kisses

Meringues are mainly made of egg whites and sugar. You need to beat the eggs until stiff and then pipe in to the shape you wish. If you do not have a piping bag you still can do it with a spoon.

Add any flavour. Secret of baking meringue is to bake on a low heat for a long time. It gives this nice crusty outer cover and gooey middle. Thats the best meringue. You can store it for longer time in an air tight container or in freezer for months.
