I had some egg whites left over from another recipe I had made, and I wanted to do something different with them. I couldn't figure out what to do with egg whites besides meringue. So, I looked in my cupboards to see what else I had. I came across a bag of matcha green tea that I bought wanting to try it and some Nutella. Perfect!
These are light and fluffy and chocolaty sweet.
Step 1: Ingrediants
1. Six large egg whites
2. One and a half cups sugar
3. One teaspoon vanilla
4. One and half tablespoon matcha green tea ( green tea powder)
5. Pinch of salt
6. Hand mixer
Step 2: Prep
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Lightly oil baking sheet or cover with parchment paper and set aside.
Allow egg whites to warm to room temperature. Mix sugar and matcha together in separate bowl and set aside.
Step 3: Making Meringues
In a large mixing bowl add vanilla and salt to egg whites. Beat on low speed till soft peaks form.
In a separate bowl mix sugar and matcha. Slowly add sugar mixture to the egg white mixture, one tablespoon at a time. Allow each addition to dissolve fully before adding more.
Beat on high till stiff glossy peaks form.
Step 4: Baking
Using a small table spoon, scoop meringue onto you baking sheet. Leave about half and inch or so between scoops.
Place baking sheet in oven and baking about 20 minutes. When meringues are done they should give off a slight hollow noise when lightly tapped.
Let cool on sheet for a couple minutes before removing. Allow meringues to full cool.
Step 5: The Yummy Bit
Add Nutella to the bottom of a meringue the add another, sandwiching the Nutella in.
Enjoy! Green tea and Chocolaty hazelnut is the perfect mix. Enjoy these with a nice mug of tea or a tall glass of cold milk.
