  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 36 servings
  
       2    Egg whites
     1/2 c  Superfine sugar
       1 ts Vanilla extract
       4    Marrons glaces; chopped
       2 ts Superfine sugar
 
 ---------------------------------TO FINISH---------------------------------
       1 ts Sweetened hot chocolate mix
  
   Grease several baking sheets; line with parchment or waxed paper. Preheat
   oven to 275 F (135 C). In a very clean grease-free bowl, beat egg whites
   until very stiff, but not dry. Add 1/2 tablespoon of the 1/2 cup sugar;
   beat until sugar is incorporated and meringue is stiff and shiny. Add
   remaining sugar, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
   Beat in vanilla. Carefully fold in chopped marrons glaces. Using two small
   teaspoons, spoon small oval shapes of mixture onto prepared baking sheets.
   Lightly sprinkle remaining 2 teaspoons sugar over meringues. Bake
   meringues 1-1/4 hours or until crisp and dry on outside, but soft in the
   center; cool. Sift hot chocolate mix lightly over each meringue. Remove
   meringues from paper.
