  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 8 Tablespoons unsalted butter (softened)

  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Separate 4 large eggs, yolks in one bowl and whites in a different bowl.
  • Preheat your oven to 215F.
  • Prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper. Also, prepare a cream bag with any tip you like.

Meringue:

  • Beat egg whites for 2 minutes.
  • Add in 1 cup of sugar, beat for another 3-5minutes or until you can flip your bowl upside down and it’s not runny. Should be stiff and white.
  • Using a cream bag squeeze out little round shapes to two prepared baking sheets with parchment paper. (you can do mini size or a bit larger, up to you).
  • Put in the oven for 2 hours on 215F.

Cream:

  • With a hand mixer beat 4 egg yolks for 1 minutes, add in 1/2 cup of sugar and 3 Tablespoons of milk. Beat for 1 minute.
  • You can bring it to boil in the microwave (1 minute) , or on the stove in a pot till starts to thicken. Let cool completely. Make sure you got your unsalted butter out to softened.
  • When the milk cream is cooled down, beat 1 stick (8 Tablespoons) softened butter.

Chocolate glaze:

  • In a pot melt 4 Tablespoons of unsalted butter, turn heat off and add in 1/4 cup of chocolate chips; stir fast till chips are completely melted. If your glaze is just way to watery add in more chips.
  • Chop 1/4 cup of pecans, or any kind of nuts or fruit you like.
  • Assemble the meringue cake:
  • Take a meringue and generously spread butter cream on the bottom; add to a plate just covering the bottom.
  • Drizzle with chocolate glaze and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
  • Add another layer of meringues spread with butter cream on bottom, drizzle with glaze and sprinkle with nuts. Continue to stack the meringue to a pyramid. Refrigerate for 15 minutes before eating.
