Light Chocolate Biscuits

    45 minutes

    These beautiful chocolate biscuits get their lightness from their meringue base. I like to use them for school and work lunches.

    I added some cinnamon sugar I had instead of the vanilla sugar. Definately for the sweet toothed.  -  04 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    These were delicious and didn’t last long at all even though I doubled the recipe!  -  10 Apr 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Really delicious - but when I bit into them, they crumbled and collapsed - nothing but air in the middle (explains why they are only 19 calories!). But nevertheless weirdly addictive and so good. Very easy to make, if you know how to whip up stiff peaks with eggs whites (and not over-beat!) you can make these. I didn't have blocks of chocolate, so I used Callebaut chocolate chunks and further cut them up with a knife. It makes for uneven bits of chocolate but in my opinion it makes the cookies even better, because sometimes you get a surprise chunk of chocolate when you bite into the cookie. Next time I will add a bit of chili and cinnamon.  -  28 Mar 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
