2 egg whites
120g caster sugar
120g walnuts, roughly chopped
150g dark chocolate chopped
1 tsp vanilla extract

Heat the oven to 180 deg
- it must be completely hot not just up to temperature.
Line 2 baking sheets with foil
[ note: I did use foil & not baking paper as I wondered if it was a heat-retention requirement]
Whisk eggwhites with a good pinch of salt until stiff & dry.
Gradually whisk in sugar a little at a time to make a thick and glossy meringue.
Tip in the nuts, chocolate and vanilla and gently fold in
Spoon heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture (no larger)
spaced apart, onto the sheets. [they don't spread much]
Put in the oven and immediately turn it off.
Leave without disturbing overnight.
In the morning carefully peel the cookies from the foil
Store in an airtight container for 1 week.

- ha ha if they last that long!!

I just realised I forgot the vanilla extract.
Also I had 150g of whittakers dark almond, so I just used that and no extra choc or nuts.

Thanks Jacqui :o)
