For the coffee meringue:

  • cup egg whites
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 200 g powdered (icing) sugar
  • 1 pic capsule of coffee Ristretto

For the whipped cream:

  • 750 g whipping cream
  • 75 g granulated sugar

For the decoration:

  • 150 g Trader Joe's dark chocolate


  • Oven should be heated to 195 F/90 C. On parchment paper, make 2.5 inch/ 6 cm circles. Invert the paper so that the drawing is on the bottom.
  • Ristretto capsule should be opened, and ground coffee should be set aside. Egg whites should be beaten until glossy using an electric or stand mixer. Granulated sugar should be added gradually. When egg whites are set, combine them with ground coffee and powdered sugar using a rubber spatula. Use a pastry bag and Ateco plain pastry tip 806 to pipe little spirals or rosettes onto circles you've sketched. For two hours, bake the meringues. After one hour, turn off the oven and leave the meringues inside with the door closed.
  • Cold whipping cream is whisked while granulated sugar is progressively added to form whipped cream. The cream should be whipped with an electric mixer until firm.
  • Pipe the whipped cream onto the meringue rosette to assemble the sandwich meringues. Finish by adding an additional meringue upside-down on top (flat side up). Cream should be used to top sandwiched meringues and garnish the edges. Using a spatula that is bent, smooth their top and sides. Place the meringues on a board and spread the cream over the top of each one. Before rolling them in chocolate chips, freeze meringues for about 10 minutes.
  • To make chocolate chips, use a mandoline slicer, a large knife, or a vegetable peeler to scrape the chocolate bar. You should put chocolate chips in a big platter. Except for the bottom, roll each sandwiched meringue in chocolate chips. Refrigerate.
