  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar

  • 4 tbsp bitter cocoa powder

  • 8 egg whites

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 4 double shots espresso coffee

  • 200ml heavy cream

  • 100g sugar

  • 200ml mascarpone

  • 250ml double chocolate ice cream

  • 250ml caramel ice cream


  • 1.

    Sift together the cocoa powder, icing sugar and castor sugar.

  • 2.

    Place the egg whites in to a clean bowl and add 3 tbsp castor sugar and whip until a soft peak. Continue to whisk and pour in sugar and cocoa powder until the meringue is glossy and stiff.

  • 3.

    Place the meringue into a piping bag and pipe into circles on baking parchment. The size of a large digestive biscuit is perfect. Place into a pre heated oven 100C and dry out over night or until they release themselves from the paper.

  • 4.

    Pipe or scoop the chocolate and caramel ice cream onto the meringues evenly add a dollop of espresso cream and squeeze on a second meringue to form a sandwich. Dust with a little bitter cocoa powder or smear the top with espresso cream and crumbles some chocolate meringue pieces over the top and a dust of cocoa powder.
