Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1 of 5 Heat oven to 250 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with nonstick foil.
  2. 2 of 5 In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder and ground cinnamon. Place egg whites into the bowl of a standing mixer, or a large bowl. Add the cream of tartar.
  3. 3 of 5 Begin beating egg whites on low speed, using the whip attachment, until foamy. Increase the speed to medium, and add sugar mixture, one tablespoon at a time, until medium-stiff peaks form.
  4. 4 of 5 Transfer mixture to a large pastry bag fitted with a large star tip (go to confectioneryhouse.com to purchase). Pipe onto prepared baking sheets. Bake at 250 degrees F for 1 hour, 15 minutes-do not open oven door or meringues may collapse. Turn off oven; let meringues sit in oven at least 1/2 hour, then remove baking sheets from oven. Carefully remove cookies directly to cooling racks. Cool completely.
  5. 5 of 5 Place semisweet chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1 minute, then stir until smooth. Transfer to a small plastic bag. Snip off a corner. Transfer meringues to a sheet of waxed paper. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let dry completely. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
