Chocolate Cinnamon Meringues

Chocolate Cinnamon Meringues

These Chocolate Cinnamon Meringues are not only very simple to make, they are delicious and full of lots of chocolate and cinnamon flavor!

It’s time once again for this month’s SRC (Secret Recipe Club) reveal and this month I found it harder than ever to choose a recipe. In case you were unclear of how the Secret Recipe Club works, here’s a quick explanation. You are assigned a blog and you keep it a secret, you have a couple of weeks to choose a recipe off it, make it and then we have a reveal day where we reveal which blog we had, and what we chose to make.

This month, I was assigned Claire K Creations and wow, just wow. The sheer number of recipes that were screaming my name, quite possibly were a major percentage of her recipes. I narrowed it down to her Chocolate Cinnamon Meringues, but it was NOT an easy decision. At all. In other words, if you love my blog recipes, I can’t imagine you wouldn’t love hers, because her recipes are all the things I would make.

There were just so many choices.

From Coconut Passionfruit Cake, Lemon Tea Cake and Orange Passionfruit and Blueberry Muffins, her sweet choices were outstanding. Then there’s the savory side, Saffron Potatoes, Spaghetti with White Truffle Oil and Bacon and Chicken and Feta Sausage Rolls. Do you see where the dilemma was? Amazing choices!

We picked the Chocolate Cinnamon Meringues because my daughter and I have been talking about making Meringues forever and when we saw the combination of chocolate and cinnamon, we were sold.

Thanks for a great recipe Claire, we know we will be making these again and again!

Ingredients
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In your electric mixer, place the egg whites and beat until soft peaks form. On my electric mixer, I put it on speed 4 for 6-7 minutes and got the soft peaks.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cream of tartar then with the mixer still running, add one tablespoon of the sugar mixture at a time to the egg whites mixing well between each addition.
  4. Turn the speed up to medium and beat for another 2-3 minutes until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  5. You can test if it's ready for baking by rubbing a little of the meringue batter between your fingers. If it’s smooth, it’s ready, if not, keep beating until it is smooth.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the cocoa and cinnamon together and then sift over the meringue.
  7. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, fold the cinnamon and chocolate through the meringue. You will have swirls and that's good.
  8. Spoon heaping tablespoons of mixture onto the lined baking sheet.
  9. Put the baking sheet in the oven.
  10. Bake in the middle of oven for 2 hours. Turn off oven and leave the meringues in it for at least 2 more hours or until meringues are completely dry.
  11. Store in an airtight container.

    My husband would love these – they combine two of his favorites, chocolate and meringues. Those little specks of cocoa look so pretty!

      I loved how pretty they were and I didn’t even use any kind of piping mechanism, but I will next time. The specks of Cinnamon and Cocoa were my favorite part and the flavor was amazing! Thank you!

      They were so easy Elizabeth, I won’t lie, I was super nervous, especially since this was for SRC. They turned out fabulous and we’ve made them again! You can totally do it!

    Hi Nicole,

    This is my first visit to your site and I’m salivating. I could spend hours looking through your recipes and I can feel the weight coming on just from looking.

    My sister and I use to call my brother toothpick because he was so skinny. All we had to do was watch him eat ice cream and gain weight. Why we were blessed with horrible genes I have no idea. So that’s kind of what I felt like looking through your site.

    I do like meringue cookies and my Mom makes what she calls Forgotten cookies. They are similar to this but with chocolate chips and nuts. My niece will eat the entire can if we don’t take it away from her. I’m definitely sending her this recipe, she’s going to go nuts.

    Thanks for sharing this and I’ll be back for another visit soon. Hope you’re enjoying your week.

    I frequently make ice cream, which requires lots of egg yolks. Now I have a great accompaniment that uses the whites!
