Ganache
1/4
cup whipping cream
3
oz bittersweet baking chocolate, cut into pieces
2
tablespoons cold butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
Meringues
2
egg whites
1/3
cup granulated sugar
1/3
cup powdered sugar
1/4
cup powdered sugar
2
tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
  1. In 1-quart heavy saucepan, heat whipping cream over medium heat just until cream comes to a simmer. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate until melted. Stir in butter pieces, a few at a time, until melted. Refrigerate until thickened.
  2. Heat oven to 200°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. In medium bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/3 cup granulated sugar, beating on high speed just until stiff peaks form. Fold in 1/3 cup powdered sugar.
  3. In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup powdered sugar and the cocoa. Fold cocoa mixture, 1/3 at a time, into beaten egg whites. Spoon mixture into decorating bag fitted with star tip. Pipe into 24 (1 1/2-inch) rounds, about 1 inch apart, on parchment paper.
  4. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until crisp. Slide parchment paper with cookies onto cooling rack. Cool completely, about 5 minutes.
  5. For each sandwich cookie, spread chilled ganache on flat side of 1 meringue; top with second meringue. Meringue becomes tough if it absorbs moisture; store in a loosely covered container at room temperature. If the humidity is high, transfer to a tightly covered container.

Take Note:
Meringues that are the same size look better when sandwiched together, and it's easy to make them the same size. Just trace 1 1/2-inch circles on the parchment paper; turn the paper over and pipe the meringue on the other side within the circles.
