Increase speed to high; gradually add remaining 6 tablespoons granulated sugar and the powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved, 2 to 4 minutes. Fold in chocolate extract and grated chocolate. Onto cookie sheets, drop meringue by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.
