- Till frothy. Add the cream of tartar and beat till soft peaks is formed. Start adding the sugar till you reach a stiff peaks and the meringue is shiny and glossy. Add vanilla and beat again. Spoon enough of the meringue in a piping bag fitted with star nozzle to pipe one 16cm round ring and 16 small meringue kisses on a cookie sheet lined with foil. The rest of the meringue can be spread in round shape by tablespoon over the foil. Bake in a 300 F preheated oven for 1 hour till crisp to the touch. Leave in the oven with door ajar to cool for 1 hour.
- Chocolate topping:
- Bring cream to simmer in small saucepan. Remove from heat; add chocolate. Whisk until smooth. Let stand until cooled but still pour able, Beat with a wooden spoon for 2-3 minutes. Chill for 30 minutes. Beat again just it holds its shape.
- Place the 16cm meringue ring over the crust base, pour the chocolate mixture over till it is completely covered. Crush some spooned meringue in a plastic bag and sprinkle over the top of the chocolate mixture. Arrange the small meringue kisses around the edge. Sprinkle the meringue crumbs only with cocoa powder to give them a decorative effect. Chill in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
- N.B: Best served at the same day as you don’t want the meringue to become soggy.
