Serves: 8
Total Calories: 358


4 eggs white large, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa + 1/2 cup
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups whipped cream
4 to 5 teaspoons instant coffee
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Unsweetened whipped cream
Semisweet chocolate shavings


Preheat oven to 225°. Line a baking sheet with brown paper. In a small mixer bowl at high speed, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup of the sugar and continue beating until stiff and sugar dissolves. Sift remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder over egg whites. With a rubber spatula, fold in until blended. Spoon onto brown paper, making eight mounds 3 inches apart. Shape each into a 3-inch circle with an indentation in the center.

Bake for 1 hour. Turn off oven and with oven door closed, cool for 1 hour. Cool meringues completely on a wire rack remove from brown paper. Store in an airtight container.

In a small mixer bowl, combine powdered sugar and remaining 1/2 cup cocoa powder. Stir in 1 1/2 cups cream, coffee powder and vanilla. Chill for 30 minutes. At medium speed, beat until stiff.

Mound about 1/2 cup of the mocha cream mixture in center of each meringue. Chill at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate.
