Directions

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In mixing bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar, vanilla and salt until soft peaks form (tips of peaks will curl over when beaters are removed).

3. Beat in sugar a little at a time until soft peaks form (peaks will remain upright when beaters are removed). Sprinkle cocoa over top and fold in gently.

4. Drop meringue by 1/4 cup portions onto parchment paper that has been lightly coated with cooking spray. Indent center of each with back of tablespoon.

5. Bake 45 minutes or until dry to touch. Remove and cool. When completely cooled, store in air-tight container to prevent meringues from becoming soggy before serving time.

6. Just prior to serving, fill center of each meringue with mixture of fruit so berries mound slightly. Lightly dust fruit with sugar to garnish. If confectioners' sugar is used, sift lightly over berries using small strainer and spoon to move sugar through strainer. This technique achieves light dusting desired.

Makes 6 servings.

    This was a wonderfully light dessert. I don't normally like meringues, but I loved the mix of chocolate and fresh fruit. We didn't garnish with powdered sugar, but used fat-free "Redi -Wip" instead. Delicious! - 7/23/08

    This is similar to a dessert we had in New Zealand and Australia, except with chocolate. This one is much healthier and still tasty. - 11/23/08

    Great recipe--useful and easily varied. I did them with almond flavoring, and they could also easily be smaller, and done as finger food desserts for a party.
    Yummy! Thank you! - 7/14/08

    very tasty, I would make them into smaller bite size portions next time, and be able to eat 2 or 3, they were hard to eat. Very pretty presentation. - 7/12/08

    This was a great, light desert for a Sunday company brunch. I made mine into 4 servings because they looked small. I think my fluffy egg whites fell a little when I added the chocolate powder, even though I folded them in really carefully. Still came out good though. Would definitely make again. - 7/15/07
