Prep Time



Total Time






cup whipping cream
oz bittersweet baking chocolate, cut into pieces
tablespoons cold butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
egg whites
cup granulated sugar
cup powdered sugar
cup powdered sugar
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.
