TWD- Cocoa Almond Meringues

August 2, 2011 – Mike of Ugly Food for an Ugly Dude chose Cocoa Almond Meringues on page 155 of BFMHTY by Dorie Greenspan.

My good husband asked me to make half of these sans chocolate.  I liked them both ways- including as a version of Eton Mess- crumbled meringues layered with whipped cream and strawberries.  The almond in these lifted them to another level.

All in all lovely.  Also a great use of the leftover egg whites after my recent pistachio tarte catch up!

Now check the blogroll for the other happy bakers, or Ugly Food Dude for the recipe and some non-styled food shots.

  1. Wow, two varieties: you are very nice to your husband. I liked the chocolate in these. I made a cake where your crumbled meringues between the cake layers, which was really interesting. Eton Mess would be good!

  2. eaton mess sounds like an excellent idea!
