I don't know why I do it. I can't stop myself baking sometimes. There is loads to do; appointments to be booked, washing to be washed, cars to be serviced, calls to be made and e-mails answered but something makes me ignore the list and bake.
Today I followed a recipe that an American friend sent. It's incredible. Just egg whites, a little salt, cocoa powder, coffee granules and icing sugar. That is it. 8 minutes in the oven. From reading the recipe to dipping the chewy blobs into your tea could be less than 20 minutes.
You have to try them!!

3/ Drop the mixture onto the baking sheet in little circles; about 1-2 inches wide.
4/ Bake for 8 minutes. Allow to cool for a minute or two. Now dunk or don’t dunk. What ever you prefer.
