  • 50g (2oz) hazelnuts, chopped
  • 50g (2oz) dark chocolate, melted

You will need:

  • 2 x baking sheets lined with baking parchment

  1. Preheat the oven to 140 C, 120 C fan, 275 F, gas 1. Place the egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on a slow speed until frothy. Increase the speed and whisk until very stiff, then start adding the sugar, a dessertspoonful at a time, until the mixture is very thick and glossy.
