    About this recipe: It may sound odd, but these chocolate and nut meringue concoctions are put in a preheated oven which is immediately turned off - the biscuits can then be 'forgotten' in the oven overnight, awaiting the chance to be gobbled up on the 'morrow. They will be out of sight but on your mind, and in your tum the very next day!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 36 

    • 2 egg whites
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 135g caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 170g plain chocolate chips
    • 145g salted peanuts

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line baking trays with baking parchment or aluminium foil.
    2. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites and salt until foamy. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until whites form stiff peaks. Fold in the vanilla and chocolate chips. Add peanuts (if desired). Spoon onto the prepared baking trays.
    3. Place the meringues into the preheated oven, shut the door and turn off the oven immediately. Let meringues sit in the turned off oven for 5 to 6 hours or overnight.
