Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 3 large egg whites at room temperature
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 300°F (150°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place the Nutella in a small saucepan and warm it on low heat until it is melted.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the egg whites and salt. Whisk until you get soft peaks. Begin to add the sugar a few spoonfuls at a time. Keep on whisking as you add in the rest of the sugar spoonfuls at a time and until your meringue thickens. You should have stiff peaks of meringue on the whisk when you remove it.
  • Add the Nutella into the meringue and gently fold it in. Take care not to over-mix so you will keep the lovely swirls.
  • With the help of two spoons, drop the meringue onto the parchment-lined baking sheets in large dollops and swirls.
  • Place in the oven for 10 minutes. It doesn't matter how perfect they look. It's sort of an imperfect dessert that is delicious no matter the exact shape.
  • After 10 minutes, immediately lower the heat to 200°F and rotate the trays. Bake for an hour.
  • After an hour, check the meringues and see if they feel and look dry. If you spot moisture or shine leave them to bake for about 10 more minutes.
  • Shut off the oven and leave the meringues to cool with the oven for a few hours or overnight. When you remove them from the baking sheet, they should release easily from the parchment and sound dry when you tap them.
  • Store the meringues in an airtight container for up to a week.
